Guest Post- Teddy and shirt tutorial

I am Cath from Cake By Cath

Today I am sharing my teddy bear tutorial with the readers of Craftionary
  • Knead some gum paste to soften it. When it is soft enough to mold tint it using a cocktail stick with brown food color and knead again. Now it is ready. Cut and set aside a small quantity for hands and legs.
  • Now shape it as the photo below for the body part
  • Once the body is ready, we need to dress the teddy. For the clothes I tinted gum paste with blue color. Roll the gum paste into sausage and cut to make the legs of the teddy bear.
  • Now using the tool shown in the picture make a cone shaped model. This creates the opening of the pants.
  • Now make feet by shaping them as shown in the picture with the gum paste we set aside first. Poke small holes to make toes
  • Brush some Tylo glue and stick the pants and feet in place. You can make tylo glue at home following this recipe.
  • Make details using a pointed knife. 
  • Now lets complete the teddy bear with the T-shirt finally.
  • Roll white gum paste very thin and cut into a rectangular shape using knife. Make two slits. Small slit for the collar and a longer one for the shirt’s end and shape as shown.
  • Now glue it in place using Tylo glue, do not bend much and use more glue to stick the back.
  • 6 
  • Finally make hands following the instructions for feet.
  • 7
  • Glue the hands to the body. Add details on the shirt. We are almost done
  • Connect the head using cocktail stick. See the post Teddy Bear to make the head

Thanks Cath what a lovely tutorial
