Wedding Cake Topper - The SHOWCASE

Well, due to the time constraint and the level of concentration needed to create this figurine, I have skipped taking photo of the steps taken during the making process.

COMPLETED today when I put up the veil and Swarovski crystal to add a little bling to the hair-do. So, here is the finished product!

Sit back and enjoy viewing! : )

Now that I have updated by blog, the next (important) thing I am looking forward to is pleasant comments from the Buyer. Hope she will love it!

Wedding Cake Topper - Work begins

THIS is what I've been working on since last week. A wedding cake topper featuring a Bride and Groom riding on a bicycle.

Meet the Bride!
Updo Hairstyle...

adding Blush on cheeks...

The Groom with trimmed eyebrows...

and styled hair...

In and Out from the oven for first heat cured!

Figurine sculpting is always challenging but fun to work with. As usual, I got carried away working on the details... can't help making them look at their best! lol...

P is for Panda!

This is an alphabet tile specially made for PCAGOE Alphabet Project.

The challenge of making this piece is working with white clay where keeping it 'clean' is a tough job. That is one of the reason that white clay is my least favorite color and hardly be used in my artwork. :p
