I use gumpaste and fondant mixed for figures; although I've seen others use the candy clay and fondant mix (or straight up candy clay) used. I'd guess it would be the same ratio of 50/50 or close to that. When I used gumpaste and fondant, my preferred ration is 60/40. You speak of molds... you have molds for your figures? I know I've seen figure molds, but I don't use them. One of the best figure sculptors is Aine2 (Lorraine McKay). I can link you to her site. She has dvd's you can purchase and download, as well as a few free tutorials that might help you get started:
