Hello all,

I'm fairly new to working with isomalt... Just recently purchased some Venuance Pearls to make edible jewels with.

I DID take a course in it a year or so ago, but forgot to ask where to find the heat lamp that was used in the class... And what specifics I needed to find the right type of lamp/bulb to work with the sugar.

Anyone in Canada (or any place with suggestions) know where to find a lamp suffient for working with isomalt?? Peferably one with a movable stand to bring towards and move away from the table surface.

Thanks. icon_smile.gif

I searched a little more and I found that it should be AT LEAST a clear 250 watt bulb. Some people seem to choose the 500 watt. Preferrably clear, but can use red.

Sound about right??

The course I took recommened the red. Easier on the eyes.
