These measured under 2" in length. Made with modelling paste which I make using a mixture of Flower Paste (home made - see my notes for the recipe) and normal shop bought fondant. As with all modelling, water is lightly brushed on as adhesive and kitchen roll is used to support shapes as they dry.

 

I don't know who the original author is of the shapes as I found it on the net but I have adjusted it with descriptive numbering to match this tutorial.

1. Sole/Midsole. Smooth the edges after cutting to shape. Turn template over to cut the opposite shoe.

2. Throat and Tongue. lightly ball the edges.

3. White toe cap.

 The end of a paintbrush that has lost its bristles is handy as a hole punch!
