Playing with Renshaws Regal ice, pre-dyed Baby blue. I´m not that big a fan of Regal Ice, but i found that adding a small amount of tylose powder to the fondant, it´s ok to work with, as this dummy shows.(pictures taken with an Iphone, through a window, and are not edited).
For borders and decorations a larger amount of tylose is needed.
Small crown from Patchwork cutters- The fondant holds shape nicely :)
Painted with Rainbow Dust Metallic´s, copper - Wow! Great to work with!
Rainbow Dust Metallic - Light silver - beautiful and delicate!
Rainbow Dust Metallic - Dark silver - so shiny.
Rainbow Dust Metallic - Dark gold - Wonderful.
Regal Ice on its own is not very useable for molds like the silicone-pearl mold, as the string of pearls breaks several times along the way when i try to remove it from the mold. But - by adding tylose again, it works!
Maybe Renshaws fondant is mostly for covering cakes? I don´t know for sure, but i know now that tylose powder does the trick for me anyways :)
