PME Modelling Tools - Dresden / Leaf Shaping Tool
Modelling Tools - Dresden / Leaf Shaping Tool
This double ended tool is manufactured by PME sugarcraft. It is a single tool with 2 different ends. Although both ends look quite similar you will feel that the wider end has a gently rounded back and the narrower end a sharp edge on the back.
This is a genuine tool from PME and is made of high quality, food safe materials.
Instructions and Tips for Use
The main use for this double ended tool is for sugar flower making although it also has uses in frilling and modelling on cakes, cupcakes and sugar modelling.
The dresden tool end with its smooth back is perfect for smoothing flower edges but for a very frilly effect you can place your petal onto a celpad or similar foam pad and by pressing firmly with the back of the tool and drawing it across the petal at right angle to the edge you can make a very frilly edge. This technique can also be used on clothing for sugarcraft models where you want a very frilly edge.
The other end is a veining tool. By drawing the back of the tool along a petal or leaf the sharp edge on the back of the tool will mark in the veins without cutting or snagging.
Definitely a tool for any sugar flower maker!
