Lego Ninjago

These are the photos which I posted some time ago on my Facebook page... I thought it might be easier for you to have everything in one place ;)

Lego Ninjago

Step 1

Lego Ninjago

--> To keep the proper proportions print a template (Google search --> lego template)
--> I used a 50:50 mix of sugarpaste and flower paste and added CMC to make the paste a bit thicker
--> I also added some trex (white vegetable fat) to the paste (the side cuts are smoother then)
-->I got the sharp edges by cutting out the shapes with a long knife.
--> Clean the knife after each cut and smooth the side cut with your fingers
--> Colours used: sky blue + violet

Step 2
