How to Use the Mermaid Tail Mould
Wash and dry moulds well before use and lightly dust with corn flour to ease release. Keeping mould on a flat firm surface, push in a smooth ball of paste. Press paste evenly and firmly into mould without overfilling. Use a rolling pin and even pressure to ensure all areas are full and the base is flat. Cut away any excess paste from the edges being careful not to cut into the mould. Turnover mould and release paste embellishment gently onto a clean surface.
Here is a short tutorial video from Katy Sue on this mould for further guidance;
The moulds can be made in a base and then painted using food colours - either paste, liquid - or for a lovely sheen use lustre colours with isopropyl alcohol.
Alternatively very small pieces of coloured paste can be pressed into the impressions and then the basic paste colour added to fill the mould. Or for a very simple finish just mould in one colour and then lustre the entire finished mould.
