My dear Dad has asked me to make one for a friend, I can't even find any pics of one made out of sugarpaste. icon_eek.gif

I don't have a lot of experience with sculpting or a full set of suggestions for you, but maybe start the house itself by carving down a block of florist foam and wrapping it in cling wrap. Then wrap gp around the block, maybe securing the top with some toothpicks or pins while it dries?

I'm going to try my best to attach a picture of an old (never used!) 3-D windmill cookie cutter. Maybe you could try to make a template from it?

The instructions give a variety of ways to construct it, including one with 4 tower pieces and one with 3 tower pieces.

Endymion, that will work great if I can't find much else, thank you! Dad does want a Dutch windmill, his friend is from Holland.

Thank you all so much for your ideas and help. . .Doug with your many links as always, thank you all! I wound up using a template from a child's craft site because I was short on time so it had to be simple. It's a bit sloppy but overall I was pleased. Thank you CC'ers!
