Hi guys. (First post for help, be gentle )
I have purchased the jem shoe cutter and have made a few shoes with a fondant/tylo powder mix. they always dry well but when I transport them tend to break across the bridge. Doesn't happen with gumpaste but it is so much more expensive and a waste of money for practicing with!
Does anyone have any ideas on how to make the mixture stronger or should I just stick to gumpaste?
Any help would be much appreciated
Hi, I think I would stick to gumpaste. I use to make them with fondant mix with cmc, but when the weather is hot it tends to break.
How thin are you rolling the sole and how are you transporting them. To transport I lay mine on their side, in a small box, on top of layers of crumpled paper towels or kleenex and attach on site.
Thanks for the replies.
The soles are quite thick (about 4-5mm) and i had them in a tin with lots of tissue paper.
Perhaps I should stick to gumpaste. Going to try making my own as this will be much cheaper than premade. Wish me luck!
I have made two shoes and both have broke and there thick and gumpast its always in the same place where the arch is I don't know what's wrong.
