Hey there,

Have you tried the library or a craft store? Check out the polymer clay books for help. Your figures don't turn out? Why? Is the fondant too stiff or too soft? Are you using BC?

Perhaps you can try out some play dough and practise with that.

Welcome to Cake Central.

Are you using fondant alone? Try mixing 50/50 of gumpaste and fondant. That works really well. I think you need to see aine2's tutorials. She few online tutorials which you can buy.They are fantastic. Here is the link for her website,
