I have recently found a link: http://park2.wakwak.com/%7Epine/studio/howto/index.htm
It has awesome tutorials but they are in japanese. I tried using babel fish but it isn't clear. I saw the fruit jelly and was wondering how you can make fruit jelly out of polymer clay. I also want to know if someone could translate everything in the webpage. Sorry if i'm not supposed to ask this kind of question here.

It has awesome tutorials but they are in japanese. I tried using babel fish but it isn't clear. I saw the fruit jelly and was wondering how you can make fruit jelly out of polymer clay. I also want to know if someone could translate everything in the webpage.

I have a number of references to the lessons and work from Pine Studios at my site (on my Miniatures page mostly).  Here's one of those entries on that page for some of her lessons:

PineStudio's donuts ... waffles ...fruit tarts
......ALSO fruit inside formed the gelatin--like Jello (actually a 2-pt resin--looks like an epoxy but could be a polyester-- but could use Varathane or Future, etc., or even a clear liquid clay like Fimo's or Kato's but would have to bake that and also use a silicone/etc. mold).... she "casts" the resin in a "mold" consisting of a plastic multi-pill packaging)
.....ALSO "twisted cookies (clever "icing tip" made from tiny cylinder of serrated metal strip fr.plastic-wrap box + trans.tape as"icing bag"), with cherry in center
.....ALSO fabulous pastries
(to view English translation through AltaVista's Babel Fish: go to: http://babelfish.altavista.com
.....enter this url in the Translate Page window:
http://park2.wakwak.com/~pine/studio/howto/index.htm ...then select Japanese to English, and click on various links in left bar)

When you say "it isn't clear" after Babelfish translates the page, I'm supposing you mean that the ideas and procedures aren't clear enough for the broken English that happens with literal translations, right? 
If so, you can find many more lessons and tips on making things like "jelly" and similar things from polymer clay, liquid polymer clay, and/or various other materials on this page at my website:
(...click on the Frostings, icings, whipped cream, meringue...also jellies, etc subcategory, under the Foods category...)

On my Miniatures page, I also try to mention exactly what words come up (in English translation) for her various tutorials/pages so they should be easier to understand.  So if you want to see all the entries I have for Pine Studios on that page (and what to look for in the translation), just do a Ctrl + f search on the Miniatures page for the word Pine, then keep clicking Next to be jumped down to them all.

I checked a couple of pages with the Google Toolbar built-in translator and it seemed understandable...but then maybe I didn't check the same ones you did...
