I made my very first figurine (Sheep) out of MFF, and it collapsed. icon_cry.gif What is the trick to get MMF to keep it's shape when molding it? Do you add gum tragacanth, and if so, where do you purchase it?

Where on earth does one find "dried egg albumen"?

Thank you for any help you can be on this!!

Add a little Tylose, hardens faster,

If my fondant is soft, I some times add a little W i l t o n Gum Tex when making figures. You should be able to find that at Michael's, AC Moore, etc. A little is all you need.
