Here's the topper:
I mean, seriously, how cute is she?! I modeled her myself from gumpaste. *big smile*
But, don't let her adorableness fool you. I came very, very close to chucking her smirking, pink and yellow self across my kitchen. Don't judge...I had to rebuild her from scratch twice, then about the time I thought I had a successful base, her head (the 2nd attempt) split down the middle requiring a third effort. The splitting head could have had the perfect horror movie-ish effect, just needed a bit of fake blood really, maybe some brain matter...hmm...oh sorry, I digress, but it is October after all. I'm in a Halloween frame of mind, sorry.
Anyway, after the headache (get it?) the main body gave me, I figured it'd be smooth sailing from there. Wrong! Turns out sculpting a snail's shell that doesn't look deformed is not an easy task. Fast forward an hour and 30 minutes later and I was finally successful!
Viola! Complete and utter cuteness.
Bonus points if you can name what line of toys the snail is modeled from.
Talk to you soon!
