AI was wondering where everyone got their scribing needles, how much they cost, and the brand? I'm looking to get one and am not having luck. Thanks.

They have quilling needles at hobby lobby which come with a tool that looks like a scribing needle. That's what I use for one anyway and it was fairly cheap

Also, Michaels and Hobby Lobby have clay modeling sections which likely have them as well.

Mail order through internet shops is the way I get most everything.   Many of the internet stores sell them along with their gumpaste & fondant tool sections.

AThank you everyone. I wasnt sure if the clay tools were safe for food use or not.

Brunesbaby, not only are the tools pretty much the same, sometimes they are cheaper.   Also they make some really cool rollers - rolling pins for clay - that will work with fondant / gumpaste.

Just bought some cool Martha Stewart faux painting trowels at Home Depot. 3 cool palette knives in different shapes for $4.50 on clearance. Stainless steel and in the dishwasher now.

 

You betcha they are going with my fondant tools.
