Step 2: The Details!
Once I had the basis for the face, I planned where the eyes should go and the general shape of them. But HEY - I'm not an artist so my lines are never perfect LOL, a little ricket-y but they give the hint and that is what matters. ;)
Then make the nose under your smudge, add the whiskers, then the mouth.
If you want to - you can plan where the cheeks will be and then brush them with some luster dust from a cake decorating shop. OR, what I did - was ice the whiskers on, let them dry, then I dusted the cheeks on. (Kinda weird but it worked.) Same goes for the eyes - they came last. (The blue colored dust.)
My kitty figurines had pink flowers on them and I happened to have these icing flowers so they were a PERFECT fit and they matched pretty well. I just used a dollop of royal icing to tack them on and dry overnight.
One thing that I did for added texture - was add extra squiggles around the cat hair once I was done painting it with the royal icing. That gives it a little more depth.
