Cute wedding set-up this week.
I didn't get much notice for the figures so I had some issues with not having time to let the pieces harden before assembly. This wasn't helped by the fact that it was very hot and humid at the time so the fondant was extra soft. Because of this I had to keep him lying down for a while as there was the risk of him slumping and becoming quite an unflattering model! I used a cone of card for her skirts, covered in fondant so she wouldn't slump. Had I had more time, I would have formed their legs / skirt at least 24 hours earlier.
Him: fondant covered poly ball head, then body formed on a dowel.
Her: fondant covered poly ball head, fondant covered cone skirt,
central dowel supporting body.
