Sugar Mastic Monkey

On the eve of the new year, the hostess of which is a monkey, I decided to present to you my master class on modeling a tasty, edible monkey from sugar mastic that will undoubtedly decorate your New Year's cake. We need mastic brown, flesh, red and white. At first I tried to paint the monkey brown, adding brown dye, but I was not very satisfied with the shade, so to get a rich brown color, I mixed red. Green and yellow dyes, in the end I got such a quite bright monkey. To get a mastic of flesh-colored, or rather not exactly bodily, I would say light beige, I added a bit of brown to the white mastic and stirred it well. It is better to stain the mastic beforehand, after which it needs to date, let it lie in the fridge or a little on the table (only necessarily wrapped in film or in a package).Then in the process of modeling, the mastic will not float. Let's start the process of modeling. From the brown mastic we roll the oval, its bottom slightly flattened, so that it stands, and then we select the tummy, just flattening the upper part of the trunk. We will also make the legs and tail, as well as we roll the ball for the head.

While the blanks are drying, let's begin to sculpt the legs, rather feet and brushes on the legs of the monkey handle. From the slightly flattened oval of the beige mastic, we first form the mitten, and then cut through between the fingers, after which we slightly straighten each finger to give it a natural look. These parts need to be glued to the monkey's legs and arms.

Our monkey is ready, but I want to give it solemnity and celebration, so I decided to wear New Year's head on her a hood that made of red and white mastic. And putting a small bag of money in our hands, our ordinary monkey turns into a monetary one, which not only decorates the cake, but also brings financial profit next year.
