|Lady Skeleton and Pirate Skull|
When filling the mold, it is easier to fill with too little and then add more
as needed rather than using too much. With a small amount of paste you can see
where the details are and be sure to fill those areas carefully.
I like keeping my paste under a glass when I am going to use it a lot. It is easier
than rewrapping it in plastic wrap over and over.
I find safety scissors are one of the best ways to cleanly
remove excess paste if you do end up with some. Push it to
the center, making sure the edges are clean and crisp.
When adding a second color, I just add it right on top without
any water or other type of glue. The paste is fresh and it adheres
on its own. I place on the freezer for about 5 minutes to get
the most out of the details.
When you overfill areas you will get this type of look which to a decorator is not
great but to anyone else is still impressive. I hope you can see the detail of the teeth
on that skeleton.
