Hello,
I'm in the process of making a "Wolverine" cake as requested by my soon to be 4 yr old grandson. I have constructed the hand and covered it with candy clay, I need to know if there is a way to make the clay look glossy/shiny, maybe like leather? Thanks in advance. icon_biggrin.gif

Brush with oil--test it first on a scrap and see if you like it.

Thank you K8memphis, I never would have thought of that! I tried it on a test piece and I really liked the look...I then decided to see how it looked photographed, and Eeek!!, it looked wet and no where near as cool as it looked in person, so I guess I'll just skip that idea. Thank you again, for your super quick response. But, I did decide to use the "oil idea" on the "blades" and they look awesome in person and in photos! I'm so excited for my grand to see this cake. Have a beautiful day! icon_biggrin.gif
