    Step 3

    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.

  • Step 4

    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.

  • Step 5

    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.
