Round cutter - slightly larger than the llama’s head (I used a 58 mm one)
22 mm x 17 mm (or similar size)
18 mm x 13 mm (or similar size)
Carnation cutter - 25 mm (or similar size; or other flower cutter)
Wooden skewer x 2
Florist wire - #24 (or similar gauge); 3 about 3 cm long pieces
Painting palette (or small containers f.ex. bottle caps)
Styrofoam cake dummy
Flower paste (gum paste):
white - 82 g
ivory - 2 g
black - 1 g
yellow - 4 g
pink - 4 g
blue/teal - 4 g
50/50 FP/SP mix*:
white - 12 g
Black gel (paste) colour
* SP = sugar paste = fondant; FP = flower paste = gum paste. To make the mix, knead same amounts of the SP and FP together. You don’t need to weigh the paste. Just mix similar size pieces. If you mix two types of pastes together you get properties somewhere in between those two.
9.5 cm (with the ears)
Roll a 60 g ball of white flower paste (gum paste). Flatten it.
Press it to the board as shown in the photo in order to create a flat bottom of the head.
Place the head flat on the board and flatten it again slightly.
