Marzipan modelling

Heidi’s dad loves marzipan, and every Fathers’ Day someone makes him something out of marzipan. A few months ago, I asserted that this year we should try to reproduce his likeness in marzipan.

We bought the marzipan a week or so ago in preparation, but on the day we only had 15 minutes or so to produce a bust. So our plans to colourise the model using chocolate were left unfulfilled.

Heidi worked on texturing (for the hair and flannel shirt) and I did most of the modelling (working from a quick sketch I had made earlier).

I think it turned out pretty well:

Heidi’s dad was chuffed, and the sculpture remains uneaten. 🙂
