I am looking for printed instructions on how to make some items out of fondant or modeling chocolate. They are a teddy bear, baby bottle, rocking horse, rubber duck, rattle and pacifier.
I can find a few videos on the teddy bear, but I really need instructions that I can print out.
Does anyone know where I can go to find any of these?

Thanks!

your best bet is to look to scuplty clay books. They have wonderful directions and with very little modifications can be used for fondant/gumpaste

I recently posted a pic of baby items, not all the ones you mentioned though.
I found Google images to be invaluable.

I need a photo to work from even for things I've seen a million times, just to get the details right.
Of course if you have the stuff in person that's even better...I didn't.

The pacifier nipple was especially hard...I did it over and over till I was satisfied it looked like a real one. I wish I had remembered to turn it around and take a better shot of it!

The bottle is easy with a mold, which is very inexpensive...I've even read where people have used a real one, and sliced it two and used it as a mold.
