ASo I really wanna get this book called animation of sugar by Carlos lischetti but I was wondering if anyone had it that could tell me how hard it is to really make these characters. Do u have to be a pro already? I have done some simple gumpaste figures before but I wouldn't say I was pro at it.
Its a great book - the instructions are clear, and a lot of step pictures.
The purpose of any book.... in MY opinion - is to give the decorater the necessary information to allow them to 'replicate' what you are teaching.
Of course, 10 people make the one figurine - you MAY be able to tell the difference between the ones that have worked with gumpaste before..... or NOT :)
I have the book and love it. The figures are not what I would consider easy. He does have some very helpful tips and ideas. Of course he makes everything look effortless.
