  • How do i preserve biscuits/sweets?

    Hi again

    I did actually ask this question on the post i started when i introduced myself but i realise now it was the wrong place doh!

    I have lots of hairslides that i'd like to make into funky ones. Years ago i thought of an idea to stick sweets or dog biscuits on them, but i had no way of asking how to!

    Has anyone ever done this?
    How do i preserve them so they don't go mouldy or soggy?
    What glue do i use to stick them to the metal slide?

    Sorry for all these questions

    I don't know about them staying ediblie! Would making them out of sour dough or fimo be better? Then they'll look the part but won't go mouldy.

        Haha i don't want them to stay edible!
        I'm just thinking of different ideas but don't fancy making them from dough or fimo, i'm not artistic at all in that department

          I don't know how well varnishing them would work.... depends then how shiny you want your biscuits!!! You might need to dehydrate them first so they last longer. I really am not sure about it so these ideas may not work.

          Just found this site. Might give an idea what you could use:

            Get some clear resin and catalyst try tiranti (google online) thats is where I got my resin and stuff from-but make sure you do it in a well ventilated area. Mix the resin and catalyst together you could either dip the sweets in it or use a paintbrush (make sure the resin doesn't harden too quickly-this depends on how much catalyst you use) and leave to harden (12-24 hours) and if the resin is still tacky to touch use acetone (nail varnish remover) and cotton wool and wipe of outer layer it will be hard underneath.

            They have a lot of resins-make sure you get the clear one-can also get pigments to turn it pretty colours!
