I have bought thi mould long time ago , I though it can be used easily , but its not , I tried gumpast, sugar cast , isomalt and still cant get the result
would any one tell me how this is work , the brand is decorelief , all the tips are appreciated , here the pic of the mould :
thanks in advance
This is morning glory mold. I have one - different brand. They can be very tricky. Your gum paste should be nice and pliable. Roll it out and lay the paste over the pointed end. let it sit for a minute so it relaxes on the mold. You have to be gentle when placing and pushing the two pieces together.
When I first started using it, I left the middle of the gum paste a little thicker until I got the hang of it. I find Nickolas Lodge and Platinum Paste work best.
Here's a pic - still in progress:
Hope this helps,
ADo u dust the parts with corn flour so gp doesnt stick to it ?
And how can use that with isomalt ? The same way as gp ?
Ur pic us sooooo nice , hope i can acheive that
I use corn starch on both pieces (sorry , forgot to add that) and then I tap the deep one so I don't lose the detail. I can't tell you about Isomalt - no experience there.
I will tell you that mine sat in my box for a long time. One night I just played with it until I made it work without the bottom of the flower tearing. You can do this - MIND over MOLD :)
thanks alot dear , I will try that tonight
yep , this mold styed in my box for more than year with no usage
You're so welcome. It's a pretty neat mold. I also suggest that you have your center with stamens ready to go. Please let me know how you made out.
