Dove template

After you have cut out the doves, lightly press your fingers along the edges of the doves to smooth them.

Use a needle to imitate the feathers on the wings and tail.

To create mini flowers, use a simple wooden toothpick and FIMO effect in rose quartz and blue ice quartz. Cut small pieces from each color and roll out small balls. Put the ball on a toothpick and roll it out with scrolling movements to get a hollow droplet.

Use a very sharp knife to divide the droplet into four even parts - this will be a mini flower.

Place the mini flowers in the center of the dove alternating shades of colors. When you're happy with your design, harden the doves in the oven for 30 minutes at 110 ° C / 230 ° F.

After hardening, allow the doves to cool completely. Then attach the earring studs to the doves using super glue.
