I am desperatly trying to make fondant people that look good, i realize this is something that takes time to perfect but i just need someone to show me a few basics. Ive tried looking for a tutorial but have come up with nothing!! Please help-my people are ugly!! lol
Which part are you having trouble? It definitely has helped me to have pictures to go by... I have several cake books that assist. Also, Lorraine from Scotland (anie2, I think is her screen name) has several AWESOME tutorials you can purchase to help w/ your modeling.
There are polymer clay molds that are useful....especially when it comes to the faces.
Ive found a tutorial by aine2 for the face and im quite pleased for my 1st go with th way that has gone just need to be shown how to do a body and how to get it to stand freely!!
I like Debbie Browns instructions. They are easy to follow and her books are readily available. I borrowed one from the library once before I got so hooked that I bought most of them. Now most of my figures don't look much like hers at all though. I think everyone develops their own style. Keep practicing, you'll get there
