I'm no good at hand modeling faces so I would get a tinkerbell doll and make a mold of her face with gumpaste. Let it dry thoroughly before using

I'm very new to CC but I saw a tutorial on youtube. I just did a search for fondant figures and tons of stuff came up. Youtube is great to see hands on how to make different things with fondant and gumpaste. Anyways mold the head out of gumpaste or fondant by forming a ball and with your fingers shape it as desired. Use a round tool to help make the indents for the eyes. Make the nose by pinching and sculpting a little. For the best result and an easy way...eyes and mouth paint on or draw on with food coloring markers.
