Which part are you having trouble? It definitely has helped me to have pictures to go by... I have several cake books that assist. Also, Lorraine from Scotland (anie2, I think is her screen name) has several AWESOME tutorials you can purchase to help w/ your modeling.

There are polymer clay molds that are useful....especially when it comes to the faces.

I like Debbie Browns instructions. They are easy to follow and her books are readily available. I borrowed one from the library once before I got so hooked that I bought most of them. Now most of my figures don't look much like hers at all though. I think everyone develops their own style. Keep practicing, you'll get there icon_smile.gif
