AI just got this cake topper completed and assembled and in the pictures I noticed how pale Alice is. Is there something I can do to make her a bit more tan? Nothing drastic, just not so ghostly. Thanks!

it's really cute -- maybe a little blush?

It's fine, brush a little bit of petal dust, mix it with cornstarch so it would be super light(the petal dust I mean). Brush it on the backside like the elbows to see if the colors satisfy you.

Personally I think it's beautiful as it is don't make anymore changes, you might ruin it.

AI put a bit more pink petal dust with cornstarch around the hairline, neck and some on the arms and I'm feeling better with how she looks. I think the arms needed it. Thanks for the suggestions!

AShe's gorgeous, but if you feel it's needed, then try the palest pink dust on a small brush with a dab on each cheek x

The blush helped. I was liberal with it. :grin:
