Sugar Sculptures - Page 2
My rotisserie came with a pair of 5-finger heat-proof silicone gloves (for removing the hot meat from the spikes), and the first time I saw them I thought of using them for sugarwork! Looking around the web I've seen mitten-type ones, but maybe you can find a five-fingered set. They have a good touch and are very flexible, and are absolutely heatproof.
Good luck with your work, and I hope to join in soon!
Quick and Easily Made Basis for Sugar SculptureThis is a project we use with Middle School students.
Decide what project you'd like to work on.
Draw out your design on a piece of cardboard,
Assemble your supplies, including sugar cubes,
various food coloring and an eye dropper.
You may need a pencil, scissors, glue and paper towels.
Figure out approximately how many sugar cubes
you will need to complete your project.
Use this formula: five sugar cubes equal three inches.
Cover the cardboard with white paper.
Glue the paper to the cardboard and let it set until the glue is dry.
Draw or trace your desired design on the paper.
Place sugar cubes in the design and glue each cube to the board.
Use the eye dropper and slowly drip food coloring
onto the cubes, according to your design. Let cubes dry.
Enjoy your sugar sculpture/art. While the professionals generate masterpieces
by toiling over hot mixes of granulated sugar, glucose, tartaric acid and more,
you've just created a masterpiece using simple sugar cubes and food coloring.
Hi Chefs, I am just a home cook, but my son is attending university for his level 3 culinary arts program. He recently spent time in class creating sugar sculptures and did some amazing work. He is very interested in continuing with it. I would like to surprise him by obtaining the tools he would need. I know through reading the rest of this thread, that the majority of items is basically made from arts and crafts supplies. I'd appreciate it greatly if one of you, or all of you, could give me a detailed list of what I would need to get for him to create his own Sugar Artistry station. Including, if possible, what would be required for "sugar blowing".
Thanks in Advance!!!
I'm sure I'll miss a bunch of things, but heres what I would want for a perfect setup:
Silicone Sphere Molds
Bars/Silicone Noodles for Casting
Copper Sugar Pot
Blow Dryer with a Cool Setting
And I'm sure there will be many other replies.
