The one's listed on rylanty's fabulous list are no longer working (for bodies, the face ones are great!) and my you tube searches and my forum searching didn't yield much (i may have been searching using bad parameters, i don't know).

I've never done people before and i have to make a boy (surfing no less...). i am really intimidated by the whole thing icon_smile.gif.

can anyone point me in the right direction?

thank you!

I love fondant modeling. Aine2 is the best person I know for modeling tutorials. Her work is amazing. I don't know if she has any tutorials for a boy, but the process would be basically the same, male or female, just different proportions.
Another really good source is the Polymer Clay books. Debbie Brown has some good books too.

I agree with Price the tutorials that Aine2 has are the best and very easy to follow.

aine2's videos are fantastic and thanks to her i can whip out fondant dogs like nobody's business, lol, but i can't find a tutorial of her's that covers boys/men (found one with a baby boy, but that's not what i need). am i missing one of her's on the web?

which book by debbie brown is best for people?

thank you for all the help!

Her tutorial called "Daddy's girl" has a man made out of fondant and "puppy love" also has a boy in it. I think if you know how to make those you pretty much can make any person. Not sure what exactly you are looking for? Hope this helps!

I have 5 of Debbie Brown's books. The one titled "50 Easy Party Cakes" has a boy laying on his back on top of the cake. He is in a soccer uniform. Like I said, I also recommend the polymer clay books, they are very helpful.
