Eleganza White Professional Modelling Paste 1kg - Couture
Eleganza White Professional Modelling Paste 1kg created specifically for professional cake artists by the same people who brought you Couture sugarpaste . . .
Eleganza is a premium quality modelling paste offering cake artists the very finest modelling paste possible.
Eleganza is made in Italy. Why Italy?... ever wondered why so many top cake artists seem to come from Italy???
Now the modelling paste of choice for many top UK and international cake artists.
Eleganza modelling paste is firmer than many other brands and this is deliberate - once you mould it into shape, it holds that shape really well and won't sag or tear easily. Although developed as a professional modelling paste, Eleganza rolls thinly and sets firm enough to use as a flower paste.
We've designed Eleganza to offer an excellent drying time - this allows you to work without worrying about it drying too quickly.
Eleganza won't dry really hard and takes around 24 hours to firm up properly - that gives you loads of time to go back and make little adjustments as necessary.
When prepared correctly, there is virtually no risk of elephant skin . . .
Allow a full 10 minutes kneading time when using Eleganza for the first time - the time taken at this stage will help ensure perfect results, so is well worth it
if you find Eleganza a bit too firm to work with straight from the pot, cut smaller pieces off with a sugarcraft trim knife and knead these as you require them - it takes longer overall but some people find it easier.
You can even pop in the microwave for 10-15 seconds (no longer) if you still find it too firm.
Eleganza won't stick to your fingers so is the perfect modelling paste for warm or humid weather. Ideal for cake decorators who have warm hands.
Eleganza is fantastic for use with moulds because of its virtually non-stick performance. Has a super white appearance and is very easy to colour using good quality paste / gel icing colouring, powder / dust colours, lustre dusts, craft dust, edible metallic colours & paints, edible airbrush paint etc.
Add detail using icing colouring pens.
Has a smooth, slightly shiny texture that dries to a gorgeous smooth finish,
Eleganza rolls out extremely thin - thinly rolled paste is much lighter so flowers and models can be more delicate
