I would look through this site, Aines2 is awesome!

She also has some tutorials on You tube that you can search for! Good luck!

I agree, Aines2 has some wonderful videos.

then just play and make them your own.

I don't know where you live but you might also check your library for any books by Maisie Parrish, she is very good

look at this web site: it's for clay but the principle is the same.

Yep, stick with Aine2's tutorials and you will go far! I did several figures before reading any of her tutorials, but then I watched her videos and they definitely helped me with a lot of key techniques.

Agree that Aine2 has some great tutorials that are easy to follow. Also, someone suggested a while back to buy Polymer clay books - I did and they are great. Very easy to follow. Good luck.
