gum paste is not as soft as fondant....its a little more sure that you can make most of the same stuff.....for flowers the gumpaste set faster and hold the shape better when rolled out thinner ....but for other stuff I like fondant better

yes you can make people out of gumpaste. I have started using sculpty clay books for directions.

For people I would use fondant with a bit of tylose added. It dries hard but gives you a much longer working period than gumpaste which dries really quickly.
