Mommy of 3 DD,
You did a wonderful job. These are real cute. Did you use all white gum paste and then paint them? What/How did you paint them? You know..method? Do/did they dry enough for you to handle them?

Sorry so many questions. I just want to know if I am doing stuff wrong.
Great Job.

I think they look adorable! I have never done this before and was wondering what you painted them with to make them shiny?

They're so great! You did a wonderful job! I'm about to attempt people, for the first time. I borrowed some molds, though, to ease my way into it. I think the giraffe is my favorite!

Thank you! I did make them from white gumpaste. I painted using Americolor gels and the wilton white gel color, mixed to the proper shade. These were still wet when I took the pic. After they dried 12 hours they were duller and only slightly tacky to the touch... Hopefully they will be fully dry by Saturday when I have to deliver the cake...

Thanks again for the nice comments! These buggars took me about 6 hours total, plus 4 days drying time... Next time I will try tinting the gumpaste.

WAY CUTE! When I was younger I used to do ceramics and I made about 40 little bunnies that looked like your bunny, he is my favorite!
