Hi craftster community!


This is my latest project. I had been having this on my mind for a couple of months.

So two weeks ago I sat down for a few hours ... and this is the result:





How to accomplish these shades of colors similar to the painted colors used in the book gave me some thought.
This is how I did it:

I used about 5-6 different shades of green. I only mixed up fimo soft colors like this:

- light green with a lot of yellow and transparent
- middle green with a lot of yellow

- dark green with yellow and transparent (as it is too dark for me, especially after baking  Sad )

- the new fimo soft aqua with transparent, a tiny little bit of yellow, -08 metallic perlmutt and metallic silver


 
For the red head I mixed up fimo soft shades -24 and -26 ... that makes a very nice red shade.

The tale got a little too long ... one segment less would have also worked.


At last I added the three shaped feet in normal chocolate brown.


I hoped you enjoy!
And maybe try it for yourself ... even with sweets and food!  Cheesy
