I have been making a lot of figures for my sisters baby shower and my nephews wifes baby shower. I ran out of foam to stand them on so I took aluminum foil and bunched it up then flattened it against the counter top. I stuck a tooth pick in to hold the figure up then pressed down the the foil again until it was level. It works great! They each have a little stand and I can reuse the foil. Just thought I'd share cause it's saved me a lot of frustration. I had them all in my thick foam but then I needed my foam..lol
Great tip! I'll use just about anything to prop up figures to dry -- whatever works, especially if it's something I can recycle. For instance: I always wear disposable nitrile gloves when I color fondant. So I used some one day and had laid them aside (in case I needed to color more fondant). I made some bows out of the fondant and ended up sticking the gloves inside the loops to hold it up to dry, and then threw them away. =)
HAHA! That's cool! I don't have a ton of counter space, everything I make now gets stuck in it's aluminum foil stand and put into a see thru storage tote to dry and keep safe. My daughter LOVES fondant. She is a fondant monster and will take anything she can get her hands on.
The guest bed always looks like a zoo or a farm or a flower bed as I always have something on cookie sheets drying in the spare room! Love the tip, Thanks!
