I want to make some poker chips. Can I make a cane from fondant, as I would with sculpy, then slice it into chips?
What would be the best way to prevent distortion?
sure, you could take some poster board and cut in strips and put around them if you think they will get distorted, or us 50/50, i don't think the fondant will distort.
Fondant can be used just like sculpey. Do you want the poker chips to be soft or harden as in what you say "hold their shape"? To hold their shape when dried, you may want to knead in some Wilton gumtex or tylose or 50/50, meaning 1/2 gumpaste, 1/2 fondant. Yes it can be rolled into a can and then sliced, put into molds or rolled flat and use round cookie or biscuit cutters. That is what I love about fondant, to me it is sugar clay!
Thanks to you all for the help.
I'm such a perfectionist it drives me CRAZY sometimes LOL.
IF I get these done I will post a pic.
