Step 1

Halloween Bat

Roll a 120 g ball of grey paste mix. Flatten it creating a shape as in the photo. Use a ball tool to make holes for the eyes (12mm and 18mm) and the dresden tool to make the mouth.

Step 2

Halloween Bat

Roll two balls of white flower paste (10mm and 15mm). Stick them in the previously created holes.
Roll out a small piece of blue flower paste and a piece of black flower paste. Let them dry a bit. Cut out two blue circles (6mm and 10mm) and two black circles (2mm and 6mm). Stick them on the eyes.
Roll a 4 mm ball of black flower paste, create a shape as shown in the photo and stick it in the mouth. Use the dresden tool to smooth the paste inside the mouth.

Step 3

Halloween Bat

Dissolve a little bit of red or rose dust colour in a drop of clear alcohol. Use a fine brush to paint blood vessels on the eyes.

Step 4

Halloween Bat

Create the bottom and top eye lids using grey paste mix.
Smaller eye: 4mm and 7mm balls.
Bigger eye: 6mm and 9mm balls.
Use the dresden tool to make marks on the eye lids.
Roll a tiny (narrowing towards both ends) sausage of white flower paste and cut it in half. Stick the teeth inside the mouth.

Step 5

Halloween Bat

Roll two 2g balls of grey paste mix. Create two teardrop shapes and flatten them. Roll out very thinly a small piece of white flower paste and cut out two teardrop shapes using a teardrop cutter slightly smaller than the ears (I used a 2cm cutter). If you stick the white teardrop shapes on top of the grey ones right away, you won't have to use any glue - the element will stick by itself. Thin the edges of the ears a little bit. Pinch the ends and cut the bottom part of the ears. Stick the ears onto the head.

Roll a 15 g ball of grey paste mix. Form a teardrop shaped body. Stick it to the head. Roll out a small piece of white flower paste and cut out a 20mm circle. Stick it on the belly.

Roll out two 1 g balls of grey paste mix. Form two egg shapes. Use a dresden tool and your fingers (pinching) to create the toes as shown in the photo. Stick the feet onto the body.

Step 6

Halloween Bat

Roll out about 10 g of grey paste mix to about 2mm thick. Cut out two 4 cm circles. Then using a 12mm round cutter make cuts to create the wings.
Roll thin sausages out of grey paste mix and stick them on the wings as shown in the photo.
Roll out three grey narrowing down sausages and stick them on the bat's head.

Step 7

Halloween Bat

For the bow: Roll out two 9 mm balls of black flower paste. Form two teardrop shapes and flatten them. Use the wider side of the dresden tool to make a shape as shown in the photo.
Roll out a 6 mm ball of white flower paste and use the dresden tool and the stick tool create a skull shape as shown in the photo.

For the eyelashes:
Roll thin, long sausages of black flower paste and stick them on the top eyelids as eyelashes.

Dust the topper using dark grey or black dust colour and blue (for th eyes).
