Was thinking of buying some cake books and was wondering if someone can recommend some cake books that have quite a few gumpaste figurines in them with just some simple how to's with like a picture to make them? I already have one of debbie browns cake book which has a assortment of little figures as well which i like flipping through so something like that i guess, no partiulcar kind in mind
If you go to u-tube under fondant or gum paste figure's you will find a lot of them
Yeh have seen a few youtube things but they are kinna limited with different types of things, am just looking for more inspiration maybe some books would have
try the craft stores and look in the clay section and they have great figure books just use fondant/gumpaste instead of clay but you get all the detailed directions in them HTH
oh ok might have a peek at them next time i'm in a craft store
Tator: went to 2 craft stores close by today but they didn't have any books like you mentioned. I looked at the bookshops online to see what they had but the only ones i saw were mainly how to make like a few really lifelike people out of clay which isn't really what i was looking for
Looking for more other random cute little figurines but anyhoo doesn't matter if i can't find what i am looking for cose CC has probly more pics than books to give me ideas and things to work off lol
I found The Sculpey Way with Polymer Clay at Michaels last month. I had flipped through it and they have really cute cartoonish looking figures (fireman comes to mind), it was $15USD. I really wish I had brought it then, but was hoping to find it at Borders so I can use a coupon (no luck). I'm planning to go back and purchase it.
Try the library. I've had a clay figures book for my daughter (sorry can't remember the name ). Atleast if you don't like the book you didn't buy it.
Any of the books by Maisie Parrish or Debbie Brown are wonderful inspirations. You find them online.
Yeh i was thinking unless it's a really good book i would buy them otherwise i just borrow ones from the library to flip though lol
I'll have another look at the clay books....didn't think about looking up the clay books at the library! duh lol
I do have 2 of debbie browns books that someone gave me that i think are so cute! but i havn't heard of Maisie Parrish so i'll go look at her books too.
Anyhoo i'll go look up all those books, thank's guys!
P.S there are so many cake decorating books to choose from! lol
