Gumpaste Hands

I wasn't very happy with how the hands and feet were looking on the fairy body so, rather than move on to completing it with the head, I decided to do tutorials on hands and feet to get some practice at making something that looks a little more realistic.
I started with hands and began working on quite a large scale, gradually making them smaller and smaller as I became more confident I wasn't going to pull the fingers off as I was elongating them! It actually turned out easier to do the smaller ones than the large ones in the end.
Lorraine McKay's video tutorial on making hands with modelling sugarpaste is very clear and gives invaluable guidance!
