I think I would pour my hot sugar into several different mediums to see which one I liked best.

One is aluminum foil, crunched up to resemble waves ish.
Spray with pan relase first.

Another is sugar, just granulated sugar in a cake pan-- it will frost the sugar but it will make a mold kinda in the sugar you can just pour the hot stuff into. You can also color the sugar--you can vary the shades of the coloring too.

I would also pour some onto a silpat or between some silicone rods so that I could form it when it cools enough.

Sweet watery ideas for you--

K8Memphis, you always have the greatest ideas. I knew I could count on you. I'm going to give one or more of these ideas a try. Hope I don't have troubles with it though. Raining here today. Humidity, my worst enemy. All summer very little rain, and the one day I want to work with candy. ARGHHHH! THANKS AGAIN!
