Cool! Looks more like an egret or a white ibis, but still . . . Was this your first attempt at something like that?

Yeah my first attempt at something this big yes. The idea came out of one of Ewald Notters books The Textbook of Sugar Pouring and Pulling I did not realize up until a day or so ago that isomalt was such a devil to pull and blow but you just have to keep at it.

Diane yes you could. With a few minutes and a few blisters to boot you can do it.

Depends on what type sugar you are using? Isomalt 3 parts to 1 part water boil to 329F. Granulated is a different animal and requires a few more steps. You take granulated to 329F and your going to have a mess. Let us know what sugar you are using.

If you can find an old blood pressure cuff just cut the cuff off and use the bulb and tube then all you have to do is insert a metal or wooden tube.
