Just curious, what would be the easiest way to make an MMF sleeping baby. It doens't have to be too big, just a bit over 1.5". It's going to be covered with an MMF blanket and be used as a cake topper. I was thinking of getting a push mold...but would like some tips cause I'm sure there are more ways than one to do this.
I just rolled a ball of MMF for the head... I painted the eyes/nose on with a very small artist paint brush dipped in Americolor... I let that dry for a few minutes... I made a tiny round, flat pacifier with another tiny flatten ball in the center of the larger one and put a tiny drop of vanilla flavoring to adhere it to the mouth area ... I made a round log shape for the baby's body and covered it with a blanket ... I made tha arms/hands and tucked those under the blanket in the position I wanted them in.. I put the baby's head on a pillow .. there is a picture of one I did in my photos .. HTH
I would like to know too!
I bought these molds on ebay on the recommendation of ShirleyW. They haven't arrived yet, so I can't tell you how they work. You can order a "food safe" mold so you don't have to worry about cross-contaminating your fondant.
Here is another one I use quite a lot, from First Impressions Molds.
And here is the link to this mold at First Impressions
You are all life savers. I have been searching EVERYWHERE for molds to use and no matter what searches I put in for eBay or using Google or Yahoo, it never brought up any of these. I'm definitely going to invest in these. Thanks so much!
