INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Note that some moulds with deep, narrow
cavities (such as the baby shoe moulds) or with
undercuts (such as the sleeping baby moulds) can require
significant care to both fully fill the mould and to
remove the model successfully. In order to release the
impression without distortion, the filled mould can
be frozen for 20-30 minutes to harden the paste first.
Our moulds can be used and re-used many times. They
can be washed with household detergent like any other
kitchen equipment. As with all new kitchen equipment, we
recommend that our moulds are washed prior to first use.
Making the impression
We recommend using either a 50:50 mixture of sugarpaste
and flower paste (rolled fondant and gum paste in US
terms), or sugarpaste mixed with CMC or gum tragacanth.
When using CMC or gum tragacanth, the recommended
proportions are one level teaspoon of CMC or gum to 250
grams of sugarpaste. (One level teaspoon CMC or gum
weighs about 2.5 grams. In Imperial measure the proportion
would be about 1/8 oz CMC or gum to 1/2 lb sugarpaste.)
If this method is used leave the resulting impression on
a flat surface dusted with cornflour to dry since the cold
surface of the paste will attract moisture.
The paste needs to be well mixed, smooth, and free of cracks.
In addition to the medium you intend to use you will need
a small artist’s palette knife or similar. A small tied muslin
bag filled with cornflour (cornstarch) may also be of use.
The examples on our website (www.fpcsugarcraft.co.uk)
were coloured mostly by using Sugarflair brand paste
colours diluted in a 90% isopropyl alcohol, 10%
water mix. This can be purchased ready mixed through
sugarcraft suppliers and is called “painting medium”,
or “thinning solution”. You can also use a high strength
liquor like Polish Vodka, but it must be 90%
alcohol. Normal strength vodka or gin (40%) have too
high a water content to give good results. The high
proportion of alcohol (at 90%) means that most of the
liquid evaporates before the surface of the sugar paste
starts to dissolve.
When dry the impressions can be coloured with
either edible dusts or paste colours diluted with alcohol.
Colouring the impression
Using a lump of paste judged big enough to just fill
the mould, press it into the cavities using your fingers
and thumbs, or a small rolling pin. Any surplus can be
removed using the palette knife or similar. Use a
sawing action from the centre of the paste outwards to
leave the paste flush with the surface of the mould. Do
not try to force the knife through the paste, but allow
the sawing action to make the cut. You can stabilise the
paste in front of the cut using the fingers of your other
hand. This is easier to do than describe! The technique is
quite simple and can be acquired with a little practice.
It is important also not to overload the brush. If the first
coat of colour is too thin, wait until the surface is dry
before going over it again with another coat, otherwise
you will just lift off the first coat and it will streak. Using this
method, try to build up layers of colour to give the subjects
depth, much in the same way as a water colour picture.
You should then be able to remove the formed impression
by gently flexing the mould. Depending on the exact
mixture you are using it should pop out cleanly when turned
over. If there is any tendency for the paste to stick, a light
dusting of cornflour (cornstarch) on the ball of paste will
If using dusts as a colouring medium, apply them
with a soft chisel edge brush when the surface of
the decoration is hard enough not to be distorted
but not totally dry (leather hard, in other words).
