Online Day of the Dead Figurine Class



During this class with Zoe you will make one female day of the dead figurine in a full-length dress. She will stand tall at approx. 25cm to 30cm (or even taller).

You will learn how to create a detailed face with Zoe showing you how to both paint or drawn patterning onto your models face. The creation of your figurine will be done using modelling paste, she will feature delicate arms and hands with full fingers.

The models dress will feature some basic piping using royal icing as well as handmade mini roses and mini skulls adding more detailing to your figurine.

She will stand tall and look amazing.

This class is deemed to be an intermediate level class. That said the class is still suitable for beginners, although you will have a better understanding of modelling if you have already completed an earlier modelling class (but it is not essential).

Learn Zoe’s techniques, tips and tricks for figure modelling, helping you create cake toppers in a time effective way. You can expect to come away from the course knowing how to create and adapt these figurines to make them individual to you. 

You will be part of a private facebook group. Here you will be able to ask questions and advice on this class and the figurines. You can watch Zoe create the Figurine as well as watching the tutorials back as often as you would like. Once purchased you will have unlimited access. 

How will the online class work?

The class will be run in a closed facebook group that you will be able to join once you have paid. There will be a link in the documentation that will be emailed to you after purchase. You will need to keep a note of your order number when joining the closed Facebook group.  

Please ensure you check your junk mail / spam mail folders for our emails.

The class is split into 3 separate live stream videos; 2 sessions are focused on the creation of the Figurine and the final one a Q&A. 

Session 1 (Monday 5th October, 18.00) - Run time approx. 180 - 210 minutes. 

Session 2 (Tuesday 6th October, 18.00) - Run time approx. 180 - 210 minutes. 

Session 3 (Wednesday 7th October, 18.00) -  A Q&A session on anything you need to ask about making the figures.

Live times are UK Time. Whilst the class is run as live streams via Facebook they are available to watch back any time thereafter so do not worry if you cannot make them. 

Do I make my figurines at the same time as Zoe?
It is advised that you watch the online tutorial first then watch it again whilst making your figurines. If you wish to make them at the same time as Zoe that is ok, however Zoe cannot stop and wait for people to catch up. You may also find that if you are making it at the same time as Zoe then you may not hear or see everything Zoe is saying and doing.

Is the video mine to keep once purchased?
You can always go back and watch the tutorials at any point after the live video is over, but you will need internet access to view it. The video is not to be downloaded or shared with other people.

How will I know what I will need to create the figures?
Once purchased you will be able to join the private facebook group, where you will find a PDF document showing you the tools and equipment you will need. This will also be emailed to you once you have purchased the class.

If you prefer you can watch the Class first before deciding which materials and equipment you will need.

Can I teach others this once I've purchased the online tutorial?
No, the class is just for you to use create your own figures. You should not re-teach them to your own students or share the video tutorial with others.

How do I access the facebook group to see the classes?
Once purchased you will be emailed a downloadable document which will contain a link to a private facebook group, you will need to use your order number to answer the questions when requesting to join this group. We will then accept you into the group. Please note it may not be immediately as it needs to be done by one of us in person, so it can take us up to a day to approve and accept your membership into the group.

If you have any questions feel free to ask us at Zoe's Fancy Cakes.
