Lorraine, if you are reading this THANK-YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!

Anyhow, this is my attempt and thanks for looking!!!

Aaaw, Jane that is adorable. Aine does have the best way of explaining how to reproduce something, doesn't she? And you are a good student because you got it just right. I think the only reason it took making 4 of them is because you are a perfectionist and it shows.

It looks great! I'm going to purchase the tutorial too but am afraid I might not ever be able to show the photos unless I tell everyone I'm making baby aliens cause that's what I think mine will turn out to look like. We'll see...

Your baby and teddy looks phenomenal. Does the tutorial cover the teddy bear too?

Lonestarstamper, the tutorial doesn't cover the teddy bear, but does show you how to make and attach body shapes, which would help if you wanted to make a bear as well (I used Aine2's instructions and looked at some pics of bears in the CC gallery as a guide to make a teddy bear - just for practice - and it turned out OK).

Lorraine also has a new tutorial coming out shortly, showing how to make one of her fabulous adult figures - I can't wait!

Does anyone know of any other instructions to make babies without paying for the tutorial?

The ones on the baby shower cake I made in my pictures are from the wilton's decorating book. That was excellent instructions to follow.

Jane, Oh, what a precious face on your baby. So well done!!

JillCleary, your little babies are adorable too.

This is out of my league, I think.

JaneK, I forgot to say in my post earlier, Great job! Your baby and bear look amazing! I have the tutorial, but haven't tried it yet - I hope mine turn out half as good as yours!

Ohh WOW! Your baby and little bear is too cute for words! Great job!! Jen

yes, thats from the celebrate fondant book by Wilton. I wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of CC and ttatummm though! (She scanned me the page because I ordered the book and it didn't come on was sold out in the Michaels by me).

Carol Ann- Your cakes are's not out of your league...just takes a little patience. That was my first cake I ever made (without any classes) and mine came out okay. Just requires a little bit of patience, as most cakes do icon_smile.gif

That is absolutly adorable. You did a fantastic job. I just finished making a baby, and used that same tutorial. Though my baby doesn't look anything like the tutorial, I found it to be very informative. It is amazing how adding CMC to your fondant will give you such dramatic results. It is a good tutorial and can be adapted for other figurines. It was also cheaper than buying a craft book on polymer clay. Money well spent.

Again, beautiful job.

JillCleary - Thanks for the nice compliment!

Okay people, what is CMC?

jillcleary1026 Posted 18 Apr 2007 , 2:00pm

I had no idea what CMC was so I did some research... here is a previous post about it...

JaneK Posted 18 Apr 2007 , 3:06pm

I couldn't get my hands on any CMC/Tylose so I used Gumtex and it worked perfectly..same general effect on the fondant.

Carol Ann, you should give modeling a is a lot of fun (I always enjoyed playing with plasticine when I was a little girl)..Aine2 has a free head tutorial on her site addition to the one you can buy...some of my early attempts at figure modeling are frightening but with practice comes improvement.....if you need a hand I would be happy to help you out as much as I could as well..

I love seeing all the different types of faces and figures that people do..each one with their own character and all the different styles..I recommend people to try modeling..I can't see who wrote it, but someone in the thread wrote you need some patience..that is very true..

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments!
