Hi. Does anyone have an idea or suggestion of how I can get a snake skin texture on fondant? I am wanting it for a purse cake, and I can't think of how to make it have that texture? Thanks!
No idea, but thought I'd give you a bump. Hopefully someone knows!
thanks! I hope so too!
You know the plastic light covers that go over flourescent lights? I guess they're "officially" called diffusers. Anyway, they have lots of different patterns, including a small diamond pattern. I've heard that some people have used these for texturing icing...either fondant or buttercream. You can find them at most home improvement stores. They come in sheets...like 24x36 inches. You can cut them to a size that is more managable.
Here are some pictures I've found: http://www.malcolite.com/index.php?id=9,4,0,0,1,0
Also, cross stich sheets. The little plastic grid squares they sell in craft stores.
Since I was using it for a gumpaste show I made (my profile picture), I bought this texture print maker from California Paper Goods. Worked well and it's inexpensive!
Thank you Mvucic!!! That is exactly what I need!!!
I was going to suggest imprinting with a mesh bag that potatoes or onions come in, but just looked at the rubber imprinter that mvucic suggested. Wow, that is cool. I might have to get one, too.
