Here are pictures of my first finished sugar paste model(s). It was fun learning how to put it together and there were definitely some things I would have done differently such as not put the hair on her head before attaching it to the body. That was a pain!

First sugar paste model progress

By |January 23rd, 2015|

As my husband can tell you, I go through cycles when it comes to hobbies. Once I get interested, I usually spend days and weeks researching, then getting tools and supplies for whatever creative endeavor I’m trying out.

Reality of Toy Blocks
