How to make dog fondant figurine

Dog fondant figurine

For the production we need fondant in brown, white, red and black color, knife, brush with a little water, a wooden peg and wider and narrower straw, which are constants in my tutorials.

First, we start with the body. Roll the brown fondant ball in form similar to Kinder egg and flatten lower part, so the body/egg will stand.

Form two back legs by rolling narrow barrels of fondant. Press with the finger on one  part of fondant to flatten it (almost a circle), on the other part just flattened it to remain narrow, as show in picture.

With the foot placed in the standing position, with a sharp part of the wooden stick press on the front part, to make the two notches.

Moisten the side of  the body and apply the legs to the body by pressing the pieces of fondant together. Use enough force to get the pieces to stick, but not so much that you misshape the pieces.

Form the dog's head. The shape you are trying to achieve will vary dramatically depending on the breed you are depicting. By now, you have been working with the fondant long enough that you should have a feel for how to manipulate it.

With the help of straws and white and black fondant produce eyes (I've been describing throughout the previous tutorials). Roll little black fondant into a ball to make the nose. Roll  red fondant into a small ball and flatten it. Press with wooden stick in the middle to produce tongue.

With a wooden stick make the hole in front part of the head where we will insert the tongue.

Slightly moisten the hole and insert the tongue. On the upper part of the head, moisten the place where the nose and eyes will be, and then with a gentle pressure place them on head to stick.

At this time we do the ears. From the brown fondant  make two small balls, which are well flattened. The upper quarter fold inwards.

From the brown fondant do a shorter thicker roll, on one part slightly thinner, on the other part flattened at the end, which represents tail.
