Isomalt Sticks

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello!  I just started trying to use Isomalt Sticks to make jewels and I have been almost completely happy with the results.  The only issue I'm having is that I'm still getting just a few small bubbles in the finished jewels.  Does anyone have suggestions on how I might correct that?  I'd really appreciate it.  Thank you!!!

torch them with a blow torch while still in the mold

it's like a glue gun for isomalt

No, I wasn't using the gun dispenser, but I did see that on the directions.  Have you tried the gun?  I was just melting the sticks in the microwave.

I think the gun has been having a lot of problems getting into the hands of the customers who purchased them. Maybe melt it in a silicone baking cup, and stir with a tooth pick.
