  • Modelling: From a photograph to a lifelike 3D model with Jacqui Kelly

Figure modelling is one of those daunting skills in sugarcraft that many people struggle with. Jacqui will teach you how to overcome your fears, showing you all the mechanics of how to take a photograph and turn it into a 3D modelled figure that is instantly recognisable.

Once you have learned the formula, it’s a simple step by step process to reproduce whomever you want, and in any outfit.

With Jacqui’s expert tips and tricks, your modelling work will become not only more realistic, but fast and effective too!

In class we will be working from photographs of two of the leading characters from Downton Abbey; both wonderful faces and dressed in costumes that are easily transferrable into ever popular Bride and Groom cake toppers.
