Step 7

Ponila sulla base, appiattisci leggermente la base e inarcala in modo da creare il corpo del koala.

Step 8

Prendi una piccola pallina di pasta model bianca, appiattiscila e dalle forma con la mano in modo da creare un triangolo.

Step 9

Mettila nel corpo del koala come da foto (quando si attaccano piccoli pezzi di pasta model Saracino non serve usare alcuna colla)

Step 10

Usa un po’ di cake gel  come colla, oppure acqua di bollitura lasciata raffreddare e posiziona il koala sulla base del tronco.

Step 12

Dai loro la forma di ‘S’

Step 13

Appiattisci la parte finale di ciascuna gamba con il dresden tool o con il tuo dito in modo da creare le zampe.

Step 18

Use your little finger to gently roll and define a paw at the end of each arm

Step 19

Flatten each paw

Step 20

Slightly bend each arm and glue into position so the koala can hug the tree!

Step 21

Roll 25g of grey modelling paste into a ball and slightly square off the top and sides to create the head shape

Step 22

Use the large ball tool to indent eyes midway up the face

Step 23

Mark a line for the mouth with the veiner tool

Use the small ball tool to mark the outer edges of the mouth

Step 27

Create deeper eye sockets using the medium ball tool

Step 28

Roll 3 balls of black modelling paste as shown. Put the larger to one side for the nose. The smaller two are the for the eyes. These are too small to weigh but should be about the size of petit pois!

Step 29

Drop the eyes into the sockets. If they’re too large or small simply remove and try again

Step 30

Use the very small ball tool to make tiny holes in the top right of each eye for highlights

Step 31

Roll tiny white balls and drop these into those holes, very gently smooth into position.

Step 32

Now roll the reserved black paste into an ovoid for the nose and glue into position

Step 33
