Divide a small amount of dough into four pieces. Color one with the brown food coloring, color another smaller piece with the red, making a pink color, and another smaller piece use the brown to make a lighter brown and leave the other piece white.

Roll a ball of the white and flatten making an oval shape for the face of Jesus. Make a rope of brown for Jesus’ hair, flatten and place around the top and sides of the oval.

Make small ropes of brown to make a mustache and beard and put in place. Add a little ball of pink for the lips and shape in place. Add tiny balls for the eyes. Add a tiny rope of white for the nose. Use a toothpick to shape nose. Add tiny ropes for the eyebrows and shape in place with a toothpick.
