Oh, now I know why mines has bubbles, as you say thin layer of royal icing on the mat first, that's a good idea, I should try that next time.   Thank you for sharing that with us.

No problem at all, hope it works!

These are fantastic textures! The stepping stones and the leaf impressions look very realistic. I especially love how you used shading in between the stones to create depth and dimension. I also like the coloring and fine texture of the embossed leaves. As far as any "defects" go, I don't see flaws, I see character. Did you find that the icing separated easily from the firm impression mat without sticking? Also, I would love to know what consistency of icing you use?

Hi, Thank you for your comments.  Sorry forgot to mention I used flood consistency.  Yes the impression mat was VERY lightly oiled with veg shortening and I left it for 48hrs before fully taking it off as at the 24hr period it was still a little moist, but it came off with no issue at all.

Neat - I really like how the leaves (and their dusted color) turned out. The same technique would be great for making dinosaur or animal footprints!

Thank you.  Yes definitely, my original idea was foot prints but I just ran out of time to play (darn those paying orders - lol).  But definitely a lot of ideas to play with.
