I can only obtain FondX, would this be suitable for to make figurines and cut out flowers etc?

or I can also get Flower Moulding Paste??

I want something ready made so I can just focus on learning the skill of making them first before I delve into making the fondant etc.

Thanks icon_smile.gif

any brand of fondant or gumpaste (flower paste) will do the job. some people use straight fondant, some use straight gum paste, some like a mix of the two, so you can experiment and see what works for you.

thankyou! So flower moulding paste is gum paste?

I now also see Modelling Paste Powder, how is this to use?

thanks again, am very excited to be learning this all!

as far as i can tell, they are the same, at least in the uk.
the powder, which i assume you just add water to make a paste, is just another product to try. you might like it, you might not, it isnt obviously different, its just a preferance.

I'm not familiar with fower moulding paste.

If you want to use Fondx, just add tylose to it so it keeps its shape and easier to work with.

thanks so much, and is 'sugar glue' what you use to hold some figurine parts together?

I call it tylose glue. Just dissolve tylose in water or you can also dissolve fondant or gumpaste in water and use that as a glue.
