Very hard to find instructions for duckies. You might have to practice a little in advance, till you get it right.

This is the more detailed I could find. Tried to look for videos, but couldn't find any!

Polymer clay books or websites might have what you're looking for.

I recently made duckies out of modeling chocolate for a baby cake (see my photos).

For the body I just rolled an egg shaped ball and used my index and thumb to slightly pinch the tail upward. I did actually pinch some of the chocolate off so the tail wasn't as thick.

For the head I just rolled a ball and plopped it on the body. Then I just free hand cut the little wings and slapped them on the sides.

For the eyes, I rolled teeny tiny little balls of white. I actually put the ball where I wanted the eye and then flattened it. I did the same for the blue.

For the beak, I rolled a small oval shape, flattened it slightly and folded it over onto itself to create the look of a top and bottom beak. then carefully shaped it to look more triangular. Then I attached it.

I hope that helps!! Good luck!
