I've been looking for any tutorials and can't seem to find one. Does anyone have any tips on how to make GP duckies? I have a duck theme baby shower coming up soon. Thanks in advance! icon_biggrin.gif

I'll try my best to post the site, but I'll PM you if it doesn't work.

In case it won't let me post the address:

OK-usual beginnings and endings, sub asterisks for dots, not space and dashes and slashes where they're spelled out. LOL!

Yes, after several times of trying to create one out of gumpaste free hand, I gave up and bought myself a really cheap 3-d duckie mold. You can pour chocolate in it or cram the gumpaste in it and it makes the perfect rubber ducky! You can buy them online for like $4 at places like candy land crafts. (One word but if I type it that way it will be blocked)

I don't have a tutorial (sorry icon_sad.gif) but I did a cake with duckies on it.

I just used a rubber duckie as a model and molded away trying to keep the dimensions as close as possible to the toy that I was comparing it to...

I'll try to include a picture...
