Thus far I've only used toothpicks, a tiny pair of sewing scissors, an exacto knife and my hands. I look at some people's GP figures and wonder how they get such clean lines and details and I'm wondering what tools they are using? Any advice? I saw a small plastic set of GP tools at Michaels (Wilton of course) But I'm not sure that this is what I need... I don't want to waste $30 to find out! Thank you!
I have the Wilton set and some clay tools as well. The clay tools I like best are Studio by Sculpey.
Here's a Michael's coupon http://mic.michaels.com/20100311WeeklyUSA.aspx?reg_source=MWK03110&utm_source=mwkly&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=mwkly031110&id=409&referenceno=06432897401 but if you look around you can probably find a better one.
Thank's Texas! Clay tools make perfect sense!
I do have the wilton set and use it all the time but honestly almost anything NEW can be used for fondant to make a shape or texture. Just make sure it's not used for anything but food and sterilize it before use.
Personally, I have a set of dental tools, great for shaping molding, etching, etc. The same tools they use for shaping teeth
