I can't remember who mentioned this site, but I've been checking it out and her work it's amazing but she is in the UK, anyways her tutorials are sent online after you purchase them...I think that's really cool.

Has anyone bought her tutorials? How do you like them? and how do you in dollars?

Thank you
Anna

These tutorials are great!! I have them all. The price is between $10 - $13, it just all depends on the exchane rate at the time. Once you submit payment you have the file to download within 24 hours. They are very detailed and very easy to follow. Only thing better would be taking one of her classes in person. She will be in Los Angeles - but that's too far for me.

LubLyrics - would love to go to FL, but still too far for me right now. Being stuck in the middle of the US is the pits sometimes!

CMC powder mixed with water - exact recipe in her 'Daddy's Girl' tutorial. Don't have it with me to retype right now.

Also, make sure to check out her free video short tuturials on YouTube and Vimeo. Just search for her name, and they'll show up!

Cute, and VERY helpful subjects...everything from making sugar glue, to how to cover a square cake w/ fondant, to how to make perfect hands for your figures (THAT one saved my sanity!!!)

Thanks, Lorraine, for all you do...you and your work are amazing!

I have ALL her tutorials and absolutely love them...you get one free when you order 3 at a time.

They range in price from about $7.50 (baby topper) to about 13.50 when converted to US dollars.

I just used them to make my first figure (it's posted - or click link below to see it).

Lorraine is amazing when it comes to these figure making tutorials. They're wonderful!! They're definitely a lot harder than they look though -- mine NEVER look anything like hers! icon_biggrin.gif

This receipe came from her tutorial. Hope this helps.
"Edible glue is available from most craft stores but it is very easy to make your own. Add 2 tablespoons of warm water to a quarter teaspoon of CMC Powder and leave the powder to melt. Don't worry if at this stage the glue appears not to be blending. Put a lid on the container and leave it in the refrigerator overnight and in the morning you will have a perfectly clear and ready to use glue. The glue should be a dropping consistency. If it is too thick, just add a little more water and stir with a cocktail stick. Keep in the refrigerator when not in use and change the glue weekly."
