Hey there fellow artists! I've got a question for ya. Do any of you sell and ship your handmade fondant/gumpaste work? If so, what have you found to be the best way to ship? What kind of boxes and packaging have to found to be the most successful in keeping your pieces of art safe and in one piece? I've recently opened an etsy shop, and I've never shipped before. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thank you!!

I use appropriate size boxes, I use cotton (like the snow sheet they sell for Xmas) to wrap up the figurine then glue that onto a board that fits in the box.

Won a set of gumpaste flowers from a grand opening of a cake supply store.  They came in a small box with a window and were padded with a soft foam.  The foam was placed between the base of the flower as well as between some of the petals.  The wire is punched through the base foam and bent to fit at the bottom.  Haven't unpacked the flower yet so I'm not sure what's under the foam.  I can't figure out how to attach a picture to this message so I added it to my pinterest page: Gumpaste Flower Packaging

Thank you both! I'll look into the boxes and padding. And I'll go check out your pinterest page SweetCIA. Thanks again!
