Day 2….. I had laid out on paper just what I needed to accomplish everyday to complete my mission. The kitchen table was going to be my work station, it was ready for me to get started on the next animal as soon as I came home from work. Laptop open, deer fondant colors ready to go, tutorial ready to press play! Here we go. I was actually excited to get my fingers into something creative. It had been such a long time.
My first attempt was wonderful until he started to slump. My deer became the incredible shrinking puddle. Well, that’s an extreme exaggeration, lol. I had not used enough of the CMC Powder, which gives the fondant some strength to hold its shape. So, by adding more to the body itself and a bamboo skewer, my deer held his own when I placed his head. The shrinking ceased!
The details to the body were easy in comparison. I was gaining confidence by the animal!
So far so good…..
I needed to wait to see if the slumping occurred over night.
Yahoo, my baby was holding his own….. Mr. Fox you’re next! Cyn
