Sweet Treats this is Awesome!! Good Job!! I just want make to make sure I understand, you used gumpaste and put it over the face and just let it sit for a few days then you used it as a mold???? I would love to try this!!

Thank you so much :)) Yes, I covered the doll face with some shortening, pushed it into a piece of gumpaste and let it dry for a while. Then i gently took the face out and was left with a mold. You can actually do that with a silicon mold kit and probably get a better result (check out Joshua John Russel's fashion inspired class- this is a much better way to do it,)

Thank you so much for answering me back so quickly! I have taken the class with Joshua and have used the make your own molds, but this way is much cheaper, I have to give this a try!!! Keep up the good work!!
