I wanted to get one of her gem molds, and I cannot find them anywhere. (not on ebay or her site right now) I have emailed her but not heard anything back yet.

If anyone has it, can you tell me where you were able to find them? Thank you!

I spoke with Kathy about a couple of weeks ago because I wanted to purchase some items. She indicated that she will be putting items back on ebay. She took things off awhile because of her traveling/teaching and keeping the storefront was a bit much. I didn't realize how expensive it can be with putting items on ebay. Anyway, Kathy mentioned how the ICES mid-year meeting was coming up and she is heavily involved with it. She told me that she has some new molds and will be sending an email to her customers when she has the site up and running. HTH

I bought some last year at the ICES convention from Country Kitchen. I liked them because you can pour hot sugar or isolmalt in them and they won't melt or distort.

Thanks everyone - I appreciate the ideas.

Veronica - your gems is what made me want to get those molds - can you tell me if they are a hard mold or if they are like a silicone one? I have bought things from Kathy, but we were at convention - so I don't think I am on her mailing list. If you could let me know when you see they are available, I would appreciate it!! (and again, your gems were gorgeous!!) I still have not heard back from them via the email I sent. icon_sad.gif

Thanks Cindy! I'll post pics later today of the molds I used for the gems. I just wish they had more cavitities.

I don't know if this applies to what some of you guys want, besides the molds, but Beryl's online website, carries the edible diamonds. I have some they are really neat. I love working with isomalt and doing the gems, I have Kathy Scott molds from her classes and also Gelerdine Ransome from Creative Cutters has some that are really nice and sturdy and detailed. Hope this helps thumbs_up.gif

No problem about posting pictures of molds and the gems I made. I saw several companies that sold the gems, but I trying to learn some new techniques and this has peaked my interest.

I will post molds first and then the gems.

I hope this helps someone.

I''ve been trying to locate Kathy's petit four molds. Does anyone know another source to purchase these now?

Thanks Veronica - the gems that you showed us at the meeting, were they all made from the Kathy Scott ones?

Hey Cindy,

No, I was testing the three different molds to see which one(s) I liked the best. For me, the clearest gems were from Kathy's mold. I liked the number of cavities in the CK molds, but the cavities weren't as deep as I would like them. And I liked the multiple shapes they offered. My least favorite was Geraldine molds. I had a hard time getting them out the molds and they were as clear as the Kathy or CK. HTH

Are you are looking for something like this... http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1613015

In all my research I've never seen a mold like that. From what I know about this stuff, it sounds like this is a custom mold. I do have those diamond gems in various sizes. I have seen them lately at Flower Factory, but a bride a few years ago gave me several of these in various sizes that she used for her wedding cake. She got them from http://www.save-on-crafts.com/lagldi.html They come in small, medium and large.

I have to see what type of coupons Michaels have this week and might pick up that amazing putty stuff and give this mold a try. Now, I see how my "must try" list keeps growing my leaps and bounds...lol

I have heard that Dominic (makeyourownmolds.com) has been trying to get that big diamond to work in a mold and isn't having a lot of luck?? You may want to post down in his section and see what all he has tried?

Thank you for all the info on this - I appreciate it!! icon_smile.gif
