A PDF version of the handout for my Dynamic Fondant Figure Modelling class where students learn about wire armatures, posing, facial expressions, and other ways to get their figures up and appearing to move around on their cakes. 24 pages, over 30 full colour step-by-step photos. Note that the class is Intermediate level and assumes students already have basic fondant figure modelling skills. To learn those basic skills for free, see my Fondant Figure Modelling 101 tutorial.
Tools and Supplies Required:
– needle nosed pliers
– 18 gauge stem wires, 18″ long (look in the florist section of a craft store), need 2 per figure
– fondant in assorted colours including your preferred flesh tone
– block of styrofoam (ie a cake dummy) as a work surface
– ball tool

The ebook includes a template to print out, requiring a printer and standard 8.5×11 paper.
