    Awesome! Now that looks like a mouth I could tackle, lol!

    yes its not a mouth like Lorraine usually teaches - though its more like the mouth of the character as he doesnt have cute lips! - the mouth is simply done inserting the wide end of a leaf veining tool and pulling down, the simply extending the sides with a knife to give a sharp edge to either side of the mouth.

    Thanks Jo! =)
    I have a terrible time trying to do Lorraines mouth. I even bought the small stylus kit and still can't get the lips. That bride and Grooms topper you did a while back was incredibly amazing!

    All the tools and the little Handy Manny are all fabulous....this is such a work of art....your modelling is fabulous...:O))
    I can relate to this cake....recently my teacher had a last minute order for a bricklayer's 21st cake but had already two wedding cakes for the same day so it was a 'class effort' to make bricks, tools, a wheelbarrow, and a little workman.....all worked out brilliantly I'm pleased to say.
