Has anyone had problems with your shoe cracking at the arch? Customer wants a stellito. I have been using a fondant/gumpaste mix. Help icon_sad.gif

Use all gumpaste and don't move your shoe until completely dry. It may take more than 24 hours for it to completely dry so be patient.

I agree with Jobueno. Use gumpaste alone and then leave it to dry. for larger pieces like shoes i usually leave them for 2 days before i 'check' to see if there set. If not, its another day to dry. It takes it time but it makes it worth it in the end.
