Roll a 30 g ball of pink flower paste. Form a teardrop shape body. Place it on the board and press the body from the top with your finger to create a flat surface on the top where the head will attach. You want the topper to be sturdy that is why make sure that the bottom part of the body is slightly flat too. Apply a little amount of glue on the skewer and insert it into the body in rotary motion, all the way down. If the body loses its shape during inserting – fix it. Use the smaller side of the dresden tool to make holes for the legs and arms.
Roll four 2 g balls of pink flower paste. Form four 2,5 cm long narrowed sausages. Flatten the wider end of each sausage. Use a dresden tool to mark a line as shown in the photo.
Stick the legs to the body. Insert a 2 cm piece of cocktail stick in in each arm. I recommend to make a hole in the arm and in the body with a cocktail stick first. Then to apply a little amount of glue on the 2 cm piece of cocktail stick. Insert in into the arm and then attach to the body.
Roll a 50 g ball of pink flower paste. Create a flattened egg shape with a slight narrowing on the sides.
Use the bigger side of the bone tool to make holes for the eyes.
Use the bigger side of the dresden tool to make a hole for the mouth.
Roll two 5 mm balls of white flower paste and stick them in the previously created holes.
Roll a 3 mm ball of black flower paste and stick it in the mouth. Use a dresden tool to smooth the paste in the mouth and widen the smile a bit. Use a scalpel to make shallow cuts (create a smile as shown in the photo).
Roll out (very thin) a small piece of black flower paste. Cut out two, black circles using a 6 mm nozzle.
I recommend leaving the rolled out flower paste to dry for a moment before cutting out the circles.
Make tiny sausages for the eyebrows.
Roll a 1 cm ball of pink flower paste. Create a flattened oval shape for the nose. Use a frilling stick to make two holes in the nose.
Apply a little amount of glue on the cocktail stick and the top part of body before sticking on the head. Use the smaller side of the bone tool to make holes for the ears.
Roll out 3 g of pink flower paste to about 2 mm thick. Use the bigger cutter to cut out two teardrops. Use the smaller cutter to mark a smaller teardrop shape inside previously cut out teardrops. Pinch both ends of the ears.
Roll a 5 mm ball of pink flower paste. Form a 1,5 cm sausage and create a spiral tail.
Stick the tail to the back of the body and the ears onto the head.
Use a cocktail stick to make a belly button.
Use pink dust to dust the topper a little.
