I am pleased with the way they turned out...better than I hoped for. I still have a long way to go to master them icon_wink.gif

They are part of the cake that I am doing for my great neice's upcoming fifteenth b/d at the end of the month.

I'm undecided which Gold Luster Dust I want to airbrush them.

I used MMF mixed with Fixodent Extra Hold Powder and boy, that stuff is great, I love using it because it speeds up the drying time icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks Nati for your wonderful tutorial on how to do gum paste shoesthumbs_up.gif

You really did a great job especially being that it was your first time making shoes out of mmf.

I am so inspired!!!! thumbs_up.gif

Wow! Great job! When do you add the fixodent powder? While you're mixing the mmf, or after? How long do you have to work with it before it starts to get hard?

Your shoes came out beautiful.
I too am so happy that ''Nati'' did that tutorial. It looks easy to follow with so many pictures.
Hopefully someday I will be able to make them!!!

I do not add it to the whole batch of MMF, only to what I think that I will be using on each step because it starts to dry while working on the piece. You will be able to tell the difference.

Example: for each heel, I added a little Fixodent and shaped that heel and then repeated for the other heel.

Depending on how much you add determines the drying time.

Make sure you get it in the powder form and extra strength; I love the squirt bottle.

Thanks missyek and sweeteecakes thumbs_up.gif

I was going to ask the same question as cocorum21...I'm in a wedding in June and those would be perfect!

Very nice, looks like you could slip them right on!

By the way, I will be trying that pillow cake out soon as I finish trying the handbag to go along with the shoes. icon_biggrin.gif

Ah Stephanie, it was the CC glitch and not my computer, now I can see your photos. Very lovely work, aren't the shoes fun to make? You can be as creative as you want with them.

Hey Stephanie, the shoes are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! I'm going to have to try those myself.
Thanks for the info about the Fixodent! I was wondering what I could add to aid in the drying time. I guess I should have asked!

Can I ask a dumb question? Well I can icon_confused.gif but here goes anyway: What is this about Fixodent? I thought Fixodent was a toothpaste if I'm not mistaken. So you can see the confusion here...icon_cool.gif Can someone please clarify? icon_smile.gif

There's no such thing as a dumb question icon_biggrin.gif

Yep, Fixodent is a bonding agent used to hold dentures in the mouth. I'm not scientific but I'm guessing the drying agent is what makes it dry faster thumbs_up.gif .

Thanks everyone...can't wait to use the CC Dust to airbrush them icon_biggrin.gif

Better hurry to place your order for the dusts thumbs_up.gif

Oh, Stephanie you did an outstanding job on the shoes. I can see it now - brides to be will be asking for their wedding shoes to be put on their wedding shower cakes before the actual wedding. You may have started a new tradition. Please post pictures of the finished cake when you can.

P.S. I love the note on Fixodent - I too didn't know what you were talking about.

The shoes look wonderful Stephanie. May I ask is this a fixodent powder that you add to the MMF & if so how much? I must have missed something, everyone seems to know about it. Sorry if I am making you repeat yourself. I am just thinking that if fixodent dries so hard, it might resolve the Gum paste/Humidty problem for me...... ever hopeful. It is worth a try.

You've done a great job with those shoes ! Do you use the fixodent instead of cmc ?
