gingerbread

I am making an animation where the houses are made out of gingerbread and so are the people/charectors I was wondering if anyone had any tips for making the gingerbread and making the gingerbread house colors to match as closely as possible to the gingerbread people.

Oh , sweet memory . . . I know that Dave Allen did a StopMotion commerical about Hans , the swiss chocolate freak in Nestle world . I think that . . . oh . No . No gingerbread in this commercial . But it is really lovely . I really like the little Hans . He's a lot like me . Sorry , Thomas PS : You could use balsafoam for the houses . Study the structure of real gingerbread . Maybe take molds of real gingerbread and cast them with plaster or something similar . Then you hotglue them onto the surface of your understructure . Just an idea .
