For the rain drops I originally was going to use the same hard crack sugar candy that I used for my classy loo, but I decided to wait a day and make a new syrup for these umbrellas. 1, I wanted a clear drop and 2, there was too much threading of the syrup. I didn't want angel hair all of the umbrellas. So, today I made a syrup and took it only to the firm ball stage. This does mean that the droplets are still soft.

Here is my set up for the droplets: I angled the cooling rack to try and give some heaviness to the droplets. I applied the drop with a wood skewer. I found the thick/blunt end gave better droplets than the tapered end.
