I'm hoping for some words of wisdom from some of you more well versed in fondant than I am. I have to make a fairly large scarf made out of fondant, and it's going to have broad bands of stripes... a Harry Potter scarf. I'm not really sure how to accomplish this. Should I roll the edges thin and overlap them a bit with a little gumpaste glue?
Was also thinking of texturizing it, but still thinking about what to do it with. Ideas?
Thanks for any help!
Im not very well versed on fondant, but figuered I would try to help. Are both sides of the scarf going to be shown? If not, I wouldn't worry about how the seam looks on the side that won't be shown. If they are, I think rolling it out thin and overlapping it would be fine, just maybe go back with a ball tool and soften the seam a bit
There are some great texture mats that have different looking fabrics, if you are strapped for cash or time you can also lay a piece of plastic wrap over the fondant and using a knitted sweater or scarf make an impression. You need to use fondant about 1/4 inch thick then press down fairly hard for the best impression. hth
roll the base color of fondant out about 3/4 of the way. lay on the stripes, then roll them into the other fondant. then you can trim the scarf to the size you need.
Hi, i recently made a HP scarf (in my photos) and the it was a challenege!
I used a brand new scouring pad to add some texture...
First i rolled the burgundy into a long piece (Scarf base), then rolled the yellow seperatly and cut into stripes. These where then laid onto the burgundy and i rolled slighty to get them to meld. O i also used water to attach stripes on. Once i was happy stripes were stuck and equal. i trimmed the sides so that the scraf had the straight edges.
The problem was lifting the scarf and placing, i did have some tears which were easily covered but work quickly and use a thick first layer
thank you SO much guys! sounds like I'll be using quite a bit of fondant. I like the idea about the plastic wrap, thanks- didn't think of that one.
Now to make maroon... that sounds like a fun color to reproduce.
