Would it be possible to get directions....my granddaughters 1st birthday is coming up.
I would love to share, which directions would you like? For the tiara ?
Yes, directions for the tiara please.......thank you!
Sure :) I took a 6" dummy, placed a wax paper on it and pinned it with tooth picks. I coated it with a thin layer of shortening, to assure that the tiara won't get stuck. I used a clay gun to extrude the gumpaste, started with a large round disk for the bottom of the tiara, and a smaller round disk for the thinner parts of the tiara. I usually work free style, but you can draw your design on your wax paper first, and then place the extruded gumpaste on your marks. You can make it thinner on each rnd for a nice delicate look and roll it inward or outward to create swirls. i also used toothpicks to keep in place each part. Use sugar glue to glue all parts to each other, make sure each part is touching another part in more than one point, for best support. Let dry for a day or two, if you have more time its better.when you think it's dry, take off the tooth picks and release the tiara from the dummy..when completely dry, feel out the wax paper carefully and paint with luster dust and vodka or lemon extract. I hope this helps, feel free to ask any questions :)
