Artista Soft is a non-food product - but contains no toxins or resins. Perfect for modelling and flower making, Artista Soft is extremely light to work with and once dry maintains a lightweight, virtually unbreakable flexible cloth like finish. Artista Soft can be used exactly as your icing based pastes. However it is a much softer and wetter paste than flower paste. All you have to remember is that when working with it meld a little "Nivea Creme" or "Trex" Into it, and if too sticky to use just leave in the air to dry a little.
As Artista Soft contains its own glue (so it sticks to itself and almost anything, apart from your hands), it can be coloured before using or afterwards. You can use dust colours, glycerine paste colours or food colouring but you will only obtain pale colouring as Artista Soft is an opaque paste, so you need to insert a lot of colouring to get it a deep colour which will lead you to destroy the texture of the paste. So for deep reds, violet tones we recommend that you use the Artista Soft/Hearty colours.
This is the ideal solution for anyone wishing to make a keepsake for the top of the cake or when the weather doesn’t allow for sugar flowers to set.
Please note that this modelling paste is non-edible, but non-toxic, designed for the parts of cakes that you normally don't eat, such as the flowers or large models.
The product drys firm but is soft enough to remodel. This is unlike a florist paste which will dry extremely hard.
Once opened, reseal the packaging, place inside a zip lock bag and then into an airtight plastic box. Do not put it in the fridge or freezer and keep out of direct sunlight.
