Hi all. I'm not very good at piping straight lines and I don't have a extruder (Michael's never has it, isn't it supposed to be in the polymer clay section). What can I do to get straight guitar strings? I'm making the wilton guitar pan for a 4 yr. old and I want it to look more realistic; does anyone have a template/pattern for guitar accents? TIA
I don't have a template to help you with accents, but I've used spaghetti (raw) for the strings, lightly brushed dry with silver luster dust.
HTH somewhat. Good luck!
Thank you Crisseyann. I thought about spagetti and your suggestion about dry brushed luster dust is so easy I was thinking candy melts or something. Now all I need is a template of a guitar faeplate.
an extruder works wonderfully. i made a life-size guitar and use a small hole attachment to make the strings. take a look at my photos and see how to turned out. i bought a cheap plastic one from a local cake supply shop and zipped in the microwave for a few seconds to warm the fondant. it came right out
how about black licorice strings?
Hi, I made one yesterday for a friend of mine. I used silver string. tied it to a tooth pick. it worked for me I haven't put the photo yet.
If you have time to do it in advance, you can use tylose mixed with water that makes the unbreakable gel. You have to let it dry for a day or so, but it makes good rigid strings.
