I was thinking about sculpting(headlights/taillights) out of fondant or gum paste but i want a glass/plastic looking finish and was thinking of pouring melted sugar over the top of these figures?
Would this work?
How would I go about doing this?
Thank you in advance!
I have no idea because I have never tried this. But my first guess would be that the fondant would melt from the high heat of the sugar. Hope you get better answers from others.
I believe you'd end up with a molten mess, sorry.
Maybe try confectioner's glaze (aka leaf glaze). Or a gelatin glaze, maybe.
1.) Make the head lights out of Pastillage & let it dry totally. Then pour sugar over it. But this wtill not give you the globe effect you're looking for.
2.) Make each compnent seperately then assemble after all is cooled & dried. To get the globe look pour the sugar over a small object & let cool.
Make the back of the light out of whatever medium you prefer to the same size as the globe object you used for the poured sugar.
3.) The gelatin idea would also work instead of poured sugar in number 2.
Have Cake Fun!
Yes - sorry, I thought you meant pouring it over just-moulded GP. If its dry it should be ok
