Before I get started with RI for the first time I was just wondering if there were any word of wisdom, tips, or pointers I should know before I start!!!
It dries quick so keep it covered!
also, keep a damp papertowel nearby. seems as soon as i set the bag down and then pick it up again to decorate the end is dry. a quick wipe with a damp papertowel though keeps it flowing.
Ahh...se I knew there were things that were insider secrets to working with RI!!
If you haven't mixed it up yet, make sure everything is oil-free. The mixing bowl, mixing paddle, spatula, decorating bags, etc. This can ruin an entire batch of RI. I learned this through personal experience, unfortunately.
I use the squeze bottles to flood with RI instead of a bag, less mess
how funny. I just sat down with a bag of RI to start practicing. I've never used it before.
I just did one rose and I don't think I'll be using RI very much. It's so thick! Is it supposed to be this thick?
if you are making flowers etc, it should be stiff
if you are outlining, it should be medium
if you are flooding, it should be thin
