Instructions for Use
Sugarcraft, Fimo (and similar): Simply roll a ball of paste and push it into the mould to completely fill the cavity, then using a knife remove any surplus filling material. Gently flex the mould and you will start to see the filling material begin to loosen around the edges, then finally turn the mould upside down and it will pop out. If a filling material is too moist (see note below) it will stick, this is overcome by placing the filled mould in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up. With Fimo and Sculpey this can be left in the mould and baked, or removed and baked.
Colouring: Follow manufacturer’s guidelines for fimo and sculpey, I recommend Translucent Liquid Sculpey as it has multiple uses. With Sugar work it is best to make your item in the base colour (ie Spiderman Face in Red) and allow it to set before adding colouring. Edible pens, paints (or dusts mixed with clear alcohol) and dusts can be used to add colouring.
For Edible Translucent / Glass Effect Items: Try Isomalt Sticks, these are quick and convenient as they simply melt in the microwave and can be poured into the mould.
*** No moulds, including branded ones, are intended to be excessively flexed ***
*** This Mould Set does however contain rubber so it will not rip ***
Please Note: As with most sugar craft modelling projects, a gum based sugar is best used (floral paste, Mexican Paste, Modelling Dough) as Roll Out Fondant is very soft and can tend to break easily if too thin in places, in addition it is very moist and will stick to moulds (branded or unbranded moulds). If a non-gum based fondant is used it is recommended that small amounts are aired to dry out slightly, or alternatively place the filled mould in the freezer for a few minutes to firm the fondant.
GREAT TIP: Gum modelling pastes are very expensive, buy yourself a small packet of Gum Tragacanth (or substitute) also called Edible Cellulose Gum/CMC Tylo Tylose Powder Gum, a small amount mixed with inexpensive fondant will turn it into a gum based sugar which is great to 3D model and mould with.
