Does anyone have a particular way they get RKT to stay on PVC pipe (armature) I have heard some how incorporating white chocolate into the mix for more firmness. But I am clueless. I have been squishing them around it but still very unstable. I have appendages for a monkey I need really stable for a car ride. thanks to any and all replies/suggestions.
I have read on here that people do not put the butter int rkt when making them, that is suppose to make them firmer..hth
I think the PVS is so smooth that the RKT has nothing to grip onto, and it slips off. I don't have an answer, but I can suggest an idea.
Can you drill holes in the PVC, and insert dowel pegs to give the RKT something to grab onto?
Thanks for the replies (" I am going to try to put piping gel on them, and see if it my adhere better. wish me luck ("
I use piping gel always and it dry well and stick well. It is the best, also melt chocolate and glue it to it but you need the freeze spray. You will be fine with piping gel.
Wait - I just learned the best tip this weekend! I tried my first PVC/RKT sculpture this weekend and was panicking as the RKT kept slipping off of the pipe. Needless to say, I was holding the RKT on with one hand and searching CC with the other!
So here's the tip (and it works like a charm!) - melt some marshmallows and cover the PVC with it. Then apply your RKT on the marshmallow covered pipe.
Hope this helps you as much as it helped me! Thank goodness for the knowledge of other CCers!
Awesome ideas Cindy and Twinkie, I am going to test both to see how they work! Thanks !
Twinkie, I have wanted to try freeze spray, where do you get it?
Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to Cindy for the marshmellow tip, it totally worked!
