i've never tried stenciling with RI on Fondant but i'd like to. i was looking at stencils (damask) and they're quite expensive!

i was wondering if anyone has the electric stencil cutter and films to make their own? is it worth trying? any advice would be great!

thanks icon_smile.gif

I made my own damask stencils. I found a pattern I liked on the internet and then I got the plastic stencil sheets from Wal-Mart. I found them in their craft section and traced the stencil onto the plastic sheet with a fine tip black marker and then cut it out with a razor blade. I spent less than $5 and it worked fine and a whole lot cheaper and I still have sheets left for more stencils. thumbs_up.gif
