Well I dont know how detailed I can get, but I have made some animals before. Once you make one, they arent that difficult to make.

What animals are you looking to make? One thats relatively easy is making a bear. If you have an idea of what you want it to look like, then just mold the pieces. I stuck them together with water. If you look in my picture, there are six animals, 3 of them have supports, the giraffe, the monkey, and the elephant.

The ones you have are some of what I am looking to make. How did you get the elephant that color?

If you just blend some black food coloring in with white...not too much...but you have to work in stages so it doesnt get too dark. After I made his ears i used some luster dust to color the inside of them.

You just have to make the fondant or gumpaste the color you want it and go from there. All my animals are fondant.
