All fondant and rhinestones (as i didnt have gumpaste on hand. Made it in about 3 hrs or so. The sole of the shoe is about 6". heel is about 3 /2" in height. Many thanks to Cleverlittlecupcakes and Klyz for all yr words of encouragement and invaluable tips. I made it as a practice shoe. Hope the real one looks as good as yrs. I also watched a utube video which i think belongs to another CCmemeber - sorry dont rememeber their names - thank u. Took me about 4hrs in total.
