Make 6 boy body pops with red bodies. Set aside to dry.
Prepare the black candy melts in the plastic bowl according to the instructions on the packet.
Dip Flapjackson’s head into the melts to create his hair. You can use a toothpick to spread the melts into place. Don’t forget to add his signature curl at the front! Repeat for the remaining pops and set aside to dry.
While you’re waiting for Flapjackson’s hair to dry, make his mirror shades. Knead the gum tragacanth into the sugarpaste to make it easier to shape. Take a pea-sized amount, flatten it down and shape it into shades by hand or with a small, sharp knife. Repeat for each pop.
Mix a small amount of silver lustre dust with a few drops of rejuvenator spirit and paint all six pairs of aviator shades. Set aside to dry.
Once dry, fix each pair of shades into place with some of the leftover candy melts.
Mix a small amount of pink blossom tint with a few drops of rejuvenator spirit and, with a fine brush, paint lips onto each pop. Do the same for the collar in black and the button detailing in gold. Set aside to dry completely in a polystyrene block.
