Does anyone know of a good reference for gumpaste 3-D figures? I would like to make a frog prince. I saw an adorable one in the gallery that didn't look too complicated, but I would feel more confident if I also had a book or video that explained the steps. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I found a frog tutorial done by Cakeboss, woot! Here it is...
Also, many cc members recommend getting the polymer(sp?) clay books that shows how to model figurines. The same concept works for modeling figurines out of fondant! Here is a link to a site with some polymer clay figurines that a fellow CC'er posted.
HTH some, Jen
I have the same question. I have never thought about using clay books!!
Also, what is teh "glue" that holds this stuff together (I have only used water)?
The name of the glue is Vegetable Gum mix just a little bit with water. Keep in a small closed lid container. Michaels or Joann's
You can get some books from the library. They are really good.
those books for filo or whatever that bakable plastercine is called can be very helpfull... they have loads of tips and are sometimes alittle bit cheaper then cake books... it texture is different but u will get the idea... also if u buy cnew clean clay modelling tools they are sooo much cheaper then cake ones... they do the same thing... weird ey?
Great Question!! I have been surfing net & also library for same thing -- but I never saw this web up posted so now have it! Thanks CC!!
I love the ideas of getting clay tools. I have always wondered why fondant tools are so expensive!
Thank you for the help! It never occured to me to use polymer clay books as a reference. I am off to Michael's to look for books and tools.
