Sugar Modelling #1: Making the Jaguar XK150

This is not to scale as I was working fom photos and made my own measurements for this. All sugarpaste. I used foam which I cut to shape to set the bonnet shape overnight. I did not want to use wires for the wheel spokes so I created the ‘look’ of spokes by making grooves in the sugar and then painting silver strips. The steering wheel was slightly larger than it should be and the door didn’t quite line up with the rear .. but .. hey ho! To create the shine I held the car (carefully, yikes!!) over the boiling kettle steam. I had mixed modelling chocolate with sugarpaste for the blue ‘paintwork’.
