The problem with layering like that is that everything has a thick coating of starch, and every scale needs to be cleaned.
You can cut them out and save them in an airtight container, with paper, just like Elcee said.
Looks good especially the mouth. Super excited especially since this is the girl version. (not blue) So I can get more excited about this one. I hope it includes lots of glitter :)
So I decided to do the scales in light blue like the lips and eyelids. I am painting the spikes, toenails & horns with pink luster dust. The winks and ears will have pink disco dust and I am putting eyelashes in pink luster and either putting a flower on her head or clutching one in her claw. I want to put a banner over top that says "Olivia". I am doing this one at home rather than the restaurant since it is for a friend and no actual $$ is changing hands.....
I'm not sure if you want suggestions. If you don't then just stone me afterwards
The dragon looks great so far. Really its making me so giddy. The eye needs some more detail to match all your hard work.
The circle is kinda oval. So I'd try to make it more circular then go back and make lines toward the pupil in a darker blue. The pupil once rounded just needs a touch of white for the light that reflects in the eye. Just like a little comma.
If you want an easier way just roll out the fondant in blue and black and cut out with the opposite end of a decorator tip for blue. Then decorator end for the black..can't remember number but you know what I mean. Then just slap em on. Put the comma of white and voila!
I'm super excited for you when you get this cake done it should bring you a lot of business!!! Ok you can stone me now...
BatterUp hows it going? Inquiring minds want to know.
