Thanks for all the great info!
post #47 of 76
Im new to gumpaste... but love this tutorial and tried to give it a go.. BUT I dont understand how the brown capri part is attached to the body? Do I make the legs seperate and then attach when dry? If so.. then how do I attach? Do I attach right away?

And why is she so shiny? was she steamed? My fondant gets dry and hard pretty quickly. Thanks for any help!

I'll try to help jenbug1...

First...definitely not steamed...never even tried that before, LOL.
In person, she looked closest to the final photo...some shine on her clothes, shoes, purse, and hair - but not overly so.
I never once wished I had toned her down...and believe me, that's exactly what I would've been feeling if she had looked too shiny.
Pic 4 is way off...it could be lighting...not sure...I'm terrible at taking photos.

The capris & two lower legs (with shoes) are separately made pieces. The capris are not covering legs...I'm not sure if you thought that?

I attached the capris to the torso pretty quickly, but the legs were quite dry when they went on...and I just used plain water to do it.

Fondant mixed with tylose is much easier to work with than gumpaste, in my opinion.

Thank you SOOOmuch. I made a person, and shewas awful. actually the clothes looked good, cute shoes, had made a scarf to cover up the awful neck/attachment, but my pants split in the back and the torso fell off. But myhead was awful. it looked... dumb. the hair was wonderful though, I was modleing after a girl with brown hair with blonde highlights and made a brown rope and put in a few yellow peices, then as it extruded it mixed in. great for foks with highlights. icon_smile.gif

I hope I can do this- I mgiht practice tomorrow. icon_smile.gif

FlourPots thanks so much for the reply. I dont know why I said gumpasate.. I am using fondant mixed with tylose. I made the legs (capri pants) and sat them on the edge of a cake pan to dry in a sitting shape.. is that what you do?

You did such a great job on the tutorial.. my torso looks great and using the spoons for the boobs and belly were perfect! Im gonna keep working on her! Im afraid she is gonna fall too pieces though! We'll see!

You're welcome icon_smile.gif

I started off the capris on the 6" pan in the photos, but that was mostly for size reference...since I was planning to use that pan to make a few layers of cake, I moved them to the plastic bowl in pic 4, for the rest of the steps...of course, I could've just used another pan, mine are all the same height, LOL!

(I intended to go all Pink Cake Box & sit her on a cute decorated cake, add a few cupcakes around....Ha! I didn't do any of that!)

Good Luck...can't wait to see her!!

chellebyerly...I bet she wasn't that bad at all. The scarf was a really good idea...and your hair idea is brilliant...seriously...I don't think I've ever seen that done before on a figure.

Did you use water to attach your torso? I did...I also put a can of soup behind her back to keep her in place (before adding her shirt).
Also, you can glue the entire bottom of the shirt to the thighs and behind...I didn't, but it sort of stuck anyway and really secured everything.

Take a look, she's so cute (click to enlarge): http://extra-icing.blogspot.com/

these are great I've got to try this. Just got a dumb question what's a PME people mold?

You're welcome, guys...

Sandy28...not a dumb question at all...I've never tried them, but here's what they look like: http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=20833&name=People%20Mold%20%20Family%20Set/4%20PME

olsen...her feet, where the toes should be, are pointed...then I placed the brown triangle shape on top, and connected it to the bottom sole. Hope that makes sense.
