I make handmade soap and I thought these would look adorable as soap (if I can figure out how to do it). Hoping to do it within the next 30 days. Thanks so much for posting such a great tutorial!

I fill them with a little cornstarch and tie with a rubber band. It give just the right amount of cornstarch when dusting.

So much so, that I had to give them a try. If you wish you can see what I came up with at http://momwhispers.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/cake-anyone-part-5/

My turtles are not exactly like yours but are inspired by them :)

Thank you for sharing your expertize! It’s invaluable for people like me that don’t have the resources to learn elsewhere.

I am a little nervous, as I have never done this type of thing…

You said you can use fondant with water instead of the Tylo glue…are there any other options of things one might have at home or buy for cheap to use for gluing? as the powder is $20, and I won’t be using much, and was not planning to buy fondant…?

Thanks so much :)

How much gum did you add? I have never had any problems with gum and the weather. So I think that you may need to add more gum to your icing.

You can keep the toppers for a long time. go by the expire date on your icing. Just keep the decorations in a air thight box, not freezer.

I have never seen any expire date on my tylo, now that I think of it. So I will have to get back to you with this one.

Thanks very for your tutorials.. I learned a lot… if you don’t mind.. I have some questions..

1. it’s winter now in Aus.. I made some toppers 2 weeks ago from gumpaste which I made
from plastic icing + Gum Traqacanth…and they are not setting or hard.. is it because the
weather or something else?

2. How long can I keep my toppers if they are set and how about it not set like mine ones?
should I keep them in the freezer?

3. Is there any expire time for Gum Traqacanth or Tylose powder?

I’m thanking you in advance for your kindness and answers..

blessings,
Elny

Works just as good.

So naturally I found this adorable. I am just learning how to decorate now and this is the first thing I decided to model. :) I made him from mmf. This was also my first time working with mmf, so I was happy with how it turned out. :)

Also it is best to color the fondant first and then add the tylo. Take a couple of oz. of fondant and sprinkle your work board with tylo around 1/4 of a tsp and knead the tylo into the fondant. After a few minutes you can feel that it is less soft and hold its shape.

The will last for years!!!! I still have the turtle from this tutorial :-) It looks perfect.
