I want to make realistic looking tinsel? What could I use? I have no idea how to make this...
What about using thick/stiff RI put through a extruder (with the attachment that makes hair) onto wax paper and let dry. Spray with silver/gold when dry?
Just an idea....
Use spun sugar. It will be delicate and lovely. If you have isomalt that will of course work. Search youtube for spun sugar. There are tons of simple tutorials.
Would gelatin work or would that be too brittle? It seems to really sparkle in gelatin flowers.
Very cute love the way it turned out!
It came out great. Spun sugar and cotton candy...no way not to make a mess
Wow - that looks awesome!
That really came out pretty! Did you use a mold for the bulbs? I've never used isomalt - a little intimidated by it! Love the tree!

Thanks! Yes, I used a mold. Isomalt is just like using any sugar at high temps - you have to be careful. But it's fairly straight forward. I still get bubbles in mine, though...Here's a link I use with recipe and directions (just scroll down to the bottom right). Have fun!
That blocked word is sugar*craft (minus the star) - site won't let us write it...
Thanks, cakesrock! I'll go check out that site.
