I often hear how people struggle when making eyes. Now, there isn't one particular technique that I use when i , there are loads of different ways to create them.
I thought I would show you one of my go-to methods.
- Saracino Flesh modelling paste
- Saracino Black modelling paste
- White flowerpaste
- Innovative Sugarworks tools
- Edible Glue
- Edible Art Paint
- Small circular plunger
Here I've demonstrated on just a small 20g piece of flesh modelling paste, it's a great way to practice !! Work the paste until its soft, roll into a ball and then flatten it. Make a thumb print in the center.
Take the green round tip chisel tool and press into the center in one direction then turn your tool around and press down in the same place in the other direction to make a nice, crisp shape.
Next make a small ball of white flowerpaste, smooth it into oval shape and glue in place.
Run a small amount of Edible Art paint around the edge of a circle plunger and then press it gently onto the eye ball.
Fill in the iris and then paint a lighter tone on the bottom half of the iris by adding a little white paint.
Paint the pupil in with black Edible Art paint.
Take two small balls of flesh modelling paste and roll it into sausages but with finer ends.
Use a small amount of edible glue just above the eyeball, then using the orange bone chisel smooth one of the pieces in place to create a top lid.
Repeat with the under eyelid and then with the light blue pointed tool make a small triangle at one side for the tear duct.
Next add two white dots for highlights and a tiny touch of pink on the tear duct.
Take a tiny amount of black paste and roll it into a sausage as you did with the lids and then glue it onto the eyelid for eyelashes.
Have fun, Zoe xx
