Hi, sorry to be a bother, but I'm not sure if my last ask went through or not. I was wondering if you would recommend 3D Puffy Paint or coloured hot glue (in terms of durability) for use directly on plastic, such as doing a drippy effect around edges. I've had experience in the past with regular hot glue peeling off of plastic quite easily and I'd like to know if the coloured sticks work any differently. Thanks!@Anonymous
Either works, in my experience colored hot glue doesn’t peel off hard plastic easily, sometimes after a while the drips can come loose however in this case (this is after it’s been dry and used a lot not when hot or first applied) I use pink nail glue on a toothpick under the drip to get a better attachment a again.
The puffy paint is more novice technique and fixing it when loose with same glue mentioned above :)
What type of paint do you use to colour the silicone? And is it possible to scent the deco to make it smell like an actual cake? Thanks :)@bethysaysrawwr
Hi! You can use acrylic or oil paint, but make sure you only use a drop or it will dry up your silicone. And yes! That sounds so yummy :) Try looking for scented oil and put a drop in with your silicone before you pipe it.

hello loves, i was wondering what do people use to make their silicone either colorful or sparkly?@puke-pastel
Glitter & colored paint :)
This has probably been asked already :c but is it okay for me to use nail glue when gluing decoden on a clear plastic case? Or would it dry white & cause my case to look horrible & not Kawaii. .-.@pastell-dreams
Hi! Nail glue will not last long at all and your pieces will probably fall off after a few hours. Try using E6000 :)
Hello, sorry if this has been asked already but I would like to know which piping tip works better? Plastic or metal? And how do you clean them if you're using 100% silicone? Thanks!@Anonymous
Hi! Plastic 100%. If you use a metal tip it will be extremely hard to clean. With plastic, the silicone just peels right off it as soon as it’s dry :)
My sprinkles keep falling of the silicone once dry, what am i doing wrong ?@Anonymous
They’re somewhat delicate by nature. It’s likely a combo of this and your silicone brand rejecting them. Push them in more if you can, they should be set into the whip not laid on top! :)
Hi, I'm not sure if these questions have been asked already (sorry if they have!) but I was wondering, do you know what people use to get that drip effect on their cases or bows? Also, do you know of a good trusting place to buy cases or charms? I want to make cases for my friends as presents for Christmas or birthdays. Thank you!@chawankiti
They have but I will answer again!
Drip effect is done one of two ways: beginner method is to use a puffy paint like scribbles from the craft store, the advanced method is colored hot glue sticks and a glue gun. You can find affordable cases on eBay and cabochons on etsy like our sponsored supplier CuppieCakeSprinkles on etsy!
There’s a coupon code for our readers in the FYD homepage too!

Which is a extremely good silicone that is really flexible & shiny? For decoden. I have tried Dal but doesn't NOT cone out flexible or shiny. Its nasty hard & plain! Even if I color it with acrylic paint it still come out ugly!@Anonymous
We recommend 100% silicone not dap. Any brand like GE will work very well. Adding a bit of paint to color can make it more squishy!
Don’t add more than 2-3 drops!
What glue do you recommend?? I've been using e6000 which is pretty good but a little messy, and I used superglue before which held well but left foggy residue everywhere :(@pugsies
Hi! We will always recommend e6000. If you’re finding it to be messy, you can buy different tips to use on the end of the tube. I use a thinner one so I can control how much glue comes out and it is so much easier than using it straight out of the tube! :) And yeah, superglue will do that :( We 100% don’t recommend the use of superglue.
