Does this title gum paste legs for figures sound weird to you? I know what you mean? Well, I've had so many request for tutorials on modelling figures. I didn't know where to start. Especially I think I myself feel that I'm learning something new every day on this topic.
So instead of just showing how to make a standard figures I decided I should start with the basic. In the sense show you how to make gum paste legs, hands, body, face, hair, etc. That way you would be able to make any figure using this basic knowledge. Now the title gum paste legs for figures makes sense doesn't it!
In fact, I created most of these videos as a thank you to my Facebook fans for their support in reaching my milestones.
At 7000 Fans we did.
You can find the gum paste legs video here -Gum Paste Legs Basic I on my Facebook Page.
And, you can also find the gum paste legs with boots video here - Gum Paste Legs with Boots - also on my Facebook Page.
After a couple of months, I also published these videos to my YouTube and blog followers.
So here are the first videos.
Gum paste legs for figures
I do hope you will join me on Facebook not just for my videos and Tip Thursdays but also to share your cakes on Saturday Sharing.
If you are already a fan on Facebook, thank you very much; your support is truly appreciated.
Veena, how do you get your figures so smooth? Every time I make a figure (recently an elephant) it cracked. I try and try to get the gum paste/fondant mixture smooth before I roll out the head or other body parts but I can't get the seams or lines out of it. I hope this makes sense.
I know what you mean.. you have to ensure that the past is smooth before you start rolling into the desired share. Press firmly until all the lines disappear.
