How many of you have used pastillage in your decorations? I used it for the first time last night. Any suggestions on sanding it? I'm really curious how sturdy it will be.

I use a small emery board to sand, I don't use it all that often, usually just when I have a taller 3D element, like a high heeled shoe.

What did you make out if it?

I made a picture frame for an anniversary cake. I'll post a picture on Monday. I pray it holds up:)

Neat! I've really been wanting to get into it a bit more, just need to sit down and practice.

scrumdiddlycakes:  how did it work?  this seems to be the perfect thing for everyones tiaras, or handles for cups.

Wanting  to make a coffee mug cake, and considering pastillage for the handle.

Did you photo your pastillage work, love to see it.

I love pastillage. I used it in these two cakes and it sands well and is very sturdy. I used fine gauge sandpaper wrapped around a small block to sand and finished with an emery board. The railroad crossing sign was pastillage, as was the rainbow. (I've posted this pic so many times I'm sure most are sick of it.) I personally don't think I'd want to use it for a tiara as it isn't as malleable as gumpaste is.

I can't believe I forgot to post my finished picture frame. I've found pastillage is really durable!

 

The picture frame is made out of pastillage and the picture is a sugar sheet. This was my first time using pastillage, and I'm pretty happy with how sturdy it turned out.

javajammer:   very creative, hard to believe that you can use sandpaper on something that you can put on a cake. With A Photo on it - no less.

I'm like a kid in a candy store, wide eyed and enjoying every colorful delicious minute on this Cake Central website.

ADo you make your own pastillage? Or can you buy it?

milkmaid42 Posted 16 Aug 2013 , 3:29am

Thanks a lot, both of you. Yes, isn't it fun to see new techniques and new ways to use old techniques. I love CC. And what a perfect application of pastillage: pictures frames! Good work.

I make my own. If you are interested, I'll post the recipe tomorrow, unless someone else will be up and post theirs.

kaylawaylalayla Posted 16 Aug 2013 , 3:32am

ASaweet! I will wait patiently :p

javajammer Posted 16 Aug 2013 , 11:28pm

Here is the recipe I used for the picture frame. It was really easy to make and work with. Good luck:-)
