Pulling And Blowing Sugar



Now THIS was a TASK! I signed up for a 6 hour course to learn how to blow sugar. It might have helped if I had gone to the beginner class and learned how to pull sugar first. But you know me, gotta throw myself in at the deep end! I got a little frustrated and didn't end up taking much home as most of my work wasn't good enough by my standards. I was mainly just frustrated that I wasn't "stop-me-in-the-street-because-I-was-born-to-blow-sugar" great at it! But I did have fun and I learned a lot. It's hard to believe that all this entails is sugar, water, glucose and a lot of heat! Here are my two pieces that I took home! My apple and my bow!
