Steps of the realization :
Once you have your materials together, mix the dough Blue Windsor pulp and Red Indian until the batter is purple darker. Book.
Roll out the black paste with the roller crystal to obtain a plate thickness of 1.5 mm. Using the cookie cutter, cut out a circle of 2 cm diameter in the plate.
With the black paste, to form a cone of 2.5 cm height and 1.3 cm in base diameter.
Place this cone in the center of the disk of 2 cm in diameter, pressing gently to secure it in place. Twist the pointed tip of the hat to give it the desired shape. Prick the nail-to-eye in the top of the hat after you have shortened with the cutting pliers.
Resume the dough purple made right at the beginning, and spread it with the roller crystal to get a plate of 1 mm thickness. Using the blade, cut a rectangle 6 cm long and 3 mm wide.
Place this purple band around the base of the cone so that the join is on the front of the hat. Cut the excess with the knife precision. (No need to smooth out the join, it will be hidden later.)
With the paste of yellow, make a coil of 1.5 mm diameter and "roll up" one end (see picture below) to form the buckle of the hat. Cut off the excess with the knife precision.
Place the loop on the front of the hat so as to hide the join of the purple band. Flatten it slightly to make it adhere and to smooth gently the join with your finger until there is no more demarcation.
ur the base of the hat (disk 2 cm in diameter), make three notches in the shape of a V with the cutter for precision and turn up the edges of the hat in some places.
Bake 30 min in an oven at 110°C.
Your hat of the witch is finished !
