Here are some observations I've made while practicing with home-made Play-dough:
- The consistency of the Play-dough is very soft and doesn't stick in your hands, different from the fondant;
- When the Play-dough dries off, it will shrink and the figure may become "disfigured" after a few days;
- The fondant, however, will keep its shape and smoothness.
After experimenting with Play-dough and getting a good start practice with it, I now feel confident for the next step: fondant! I've made some research on how to make your own fondant, and will try it out very soon. Although it is recommended to buy a ready-made fondant, it is in my nature to experiment it at least once, just to see how well I can do it. I'll let you guys know how it went!
