I love to keep everything I do, very simple….but simple doesnt always mean EASY! LolFor this tutorial, you may want to use Gumpaste… I used Wilton Fondant (For the record, I ALWAYS use the Liz Marek Recipe, but for these, I wanted them to get hard, so I didnt.) Start off with a strip of fondant, and cut both sides at an angle, depending on how big you want your feather! You may also want to try using your pizza cutter or small rolling cutter to give the feather dramatic curves&...
Bio I studied art at the Ringling School of Art and Design, jewellery at Georgia State University, jewellery, enamelling, copper smithing, glass and porcelain at Penland School, and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art from the Atlanta College of Art.

It is recommended by Alan Dunn, the famous sugar flower master and tutor. I would really like to get the book Modelling in cold porcelain by Tombi Peck, Alan Dunn.

I’m starting to realise there is only so much information that I can fit into my brain. If I could plug my self into my itunes account like my iphone, I could see just how my grey matter organises the inside of my head. Perhaps a little pink bar for memories and emotion, heaps of green space taken up by my thoughts and worries, a coloured section each for the kids, work, school, cake, food, drama, after school activities, recipes, the house, the husband.
