Centres should note if candidates use the over-piping technique as demonstrated in this video, marks can only be awarded for piping. Marks would not be awarded for crimping in this situation as not all of the technique can be seen.

Part 6 - Dog Decor   (15:27, 127 MB)  

The lecturer describes the models shown as simple, straightforward, and detailed. Please note, all three models would meet the criteria for straightforward. For a model to be considered detailed, additional fine detail would be required for example,  the body and head could be textured to resemble a dog’s rough coat.
