Continue to pipe the brush embroidery scales until the top of the tail.
After piping each scale dip the brush into the cooled boiled water, blot the brush on to the paper towel, being mindful the brush remains slightly damped. Using the side of the flat brush, brush the royal icing in the direction of form!
