2. Sword and shield

What kind of a Knight goes against a Dragon without a sword and shield? Use grey sugarpaste and cut out your sword blade shape, the hilt of the blade can be added once the blade is in place.

3. Knight's face

Take a piece of grey sugarpaste that will be used for the Knight’s head. A skin colour circle is added to this to represent the face and then the helmet is built around this shape. Facial details are added to the Knight in this lesson too.

4. Painting

Use a super fine (00 size) brush to paint the eyes and eyelash details on to the Princess, the Knight and the Dragon. Don’t rush this part!

5. The hair

The princess is a tad on the bald side so apply water to the head ready to stick some hair on. A tiny quiff of hair is added to the Knight using brown sugarpaste ‘carrot’ shapes. The hair for the princess is created by twisting strands of sugarpaste to form a hair style of your liking.
