Ummmmm - if there is - they would be dead boring .... it really IS just a case of push it in - keep squishing to make sure any undercuts are completely filled - carefully level the top edge with a plastic artists palet knife (sometimes you need to keep your finger infront of where you are cutting to prevent all paste getting dragged out)

Pop in the fridge/freezer to harden for minute or two - turn mould over and flex to popout your fondant/gumpaste pieces.

I'm a visual person and I'm thinking of buying some molds and wanted to see what they actually come out looking like! before I buy them!

Try tonedna1 on youtube. She has a video tutorial showing her using a silicone mold to make a string of beads.

Which site are you looking at? Most good suppliers will have a picture of the mould, a picture of the item as it comes out AND also a picture of how it might be used ! All pretty visual

It appears you have taken offense at my reply - I guess I wrongly assumed that you had seen all of the good sites.

I would never buy a mould that I had not seen an item produced from.

Scott Woolley has a couple videos on his site but they are in reference to things like the Mexican Hat and such.

Okay, I have this new browser and this thing takes FOREVER to load anything (Internet Explorer my eye!) icon_mad.gif but if you go to global sugar art, click on instructions sheets, the third one down Alan has a demo on molding. I'd post the link but the stinkin browser won't load it up for me! icon_mad.gif
