We are about to start some construction in my kitchen and I have a small area (3 foot x 8-10 inches) where my husband is open to the idea of having me make the tiles. I was thinking of doing something adventurous, like a mermaid scale...any suggestions as to where I might be able to get a cookie cutter set for such a thing? I have a multi-sized set of hexagons, which is another option. I tried Amazon and only found one seller with something that I could work with.
Great idea - I saw a chef use a tool to create fish scales for some fish dish , thought ah - I could use that for clay —maybe useful for your -mermaids . So although I don’t recall specifically- perhaps you could check cooking stuff . Good luck.
I found a great fondant rolling pin that makes great scales. Bought it at JoAnn’s in the cooking section. I use it for larger clay fish and it works really well. Easy to roll out a scale area and smooth away any areas that you don’t need the scales.. hope this helps if you decide on mermaid. Love the hexagon idea too
Check with DeLaDesign on Etsy. Her cookie Cutters are highly recommended at the studio I go to.
MKM makes a fish scale roller. Also, look for fondant texture mate, stamps, etc. For cookie Cutters, you might want to search for the ones that have a plunger as well.
Thanks! I found a gradient sized set on Etsy and purchased it. I haven't tried it yet, after this glaze kiln this weekend. I'll def check out the etsy shop you recommended. Thanks!
