KQAS 2011 Update: Sugar Sculpture

04 Feb

I have the final coating of royal icing on the base.  Once this layer is completely dry, I will be able to sand it smooth and shape it with clay tools. This is the most important layer.  It is the final protective coating for the rice cereal and it provides all of the correct lines. 

The Tyger of the East is iconic. People in this kingdom ‘know’ what this figure looks like. One of the most challenging aspects of the project is to translate a 2 dimensional image into a 3 dimensional sculpture. There is a certain amount of guess work involved. The project is now to a point where you can clearly see what the sculpture will be.

Here is the side which is associated with this image.

Here is the flip side.
