Does anyone have a good way to quick dry/set figures,especially people?
60/50 gumpaste to fondant has always worked well for me. I know most will say 50/50. I make a lot of figures and find that my ratio gives me time to work with the figure, but also allows it to firm up much more quickly. As well, you can place the figure in front of a fan to speed up the process. I find that if I work in stages (torso first, legs, arms, head, clothing...) then I can fully expect it to be sturdy enough for placement within 24 hours.
Awesome! Love your figures!
