So I bought a tub of gumpaste, and i made three people, I wasn't sure quite how the pro's do it so i used my imagination.. but now i'm curious. How do you make gumpaste people? Do you use different pieces for arms, legs, heads, and how on earth do you get them to keep from getting wrinkles??? haha :]

Thank You to whoever can help! icon_biggrin.gif

I have made them with fondant w/ tylose added to it so it hardens better. Sometimes I add too much and it bounces back a lot & is hard to "sculpt" though! I am going to do some white modeling chocolate for my next project though, it is so nice to work with!
