      Flexi Paste


                  Instant Lace/Firm Silicone Mold                                                         
15g x Flexi Paste dry powder + another 70g
15g x boiling water
20g x vegetable shortning 
15g x icing sugar mixture

Method:

  • Mix 15g of flexi and 15g of boiling water with 15g of icing sugar mixture
  • Beat with a mixer until light and fluffy
  • Then add the 70g of extra Flexi powder a little at a time, dont worry about any flexi being missed it can all be spooned out at the end of process
  • Place some cornflour down and press your paste flat and add the vegetable shortning
  • Now take up in your hands and start to work the shortning into your paste, knead with cornflour to remove the moisture (this is a must)
  • You will want it soft and pliable as in the Youtube excert so it will release straight away from a Firm Silicone Mold
  • As with the standard Flexi Paste mix, the more you work it the firmer it gets - just add more water and re-knead with cornflour to your desired paste consistency

New and Improved Lace/Mold Mix(for Flexible Silicone Mold)
80g x Boiling Water 80g x Flexi Paste dry powder
20g x icing sugar mixture
20g x cornflour
5g x Gelatine

Method:
  • Place Gelatine in a heatproof jug, clear your scales and then add 80 grams boiling water over the top of the Gelatine and dissolve it.
  • Place icing sugar and cornflour in a bowl with the flexi powder.
  • Then add the dissolved gelatine water mix in with dry ingredients and bet until light and fluffy.
  • Spray your moulds with oil and take the excess off, then place the mix in the moulds. Place your moulds in a nice warm area to dry the warmer area as it will dry faster, the warmer the area the faster it will set.
  • When you need to do another mix just re-beat with your handled mixer if it’s too firm just a drop of water but not to much.
Just store like you would the other lace mix one, before you take the lace out of the moulds just give it a little dust of cornflour to the back of it first.
