1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Recent Topper on: June 05, 2010 09:01:55 AM
My most recent topper, being delivered tonight just before the wedding!
Was in a mad rush to get the pics in, but I managed it in the end Tongue

OOAK polymer clay custom topper, slightly larger than usual (as per order) at 25cm
I've attached a (terrible) pic of the couple for reference, until I get a new one.

Thanks for your comments everyone!
The veil under the do is what I was thinking too, so I'll probably give that a go. I have some fine tulle which is perfect for miniature veils!

Thanks space.case.sara!
You're right she does seem short, but it was intentional, I made her head a little bigger than "real" proportions would allow (making her appear caricatury), as I wanted the emphasis to be on the likeness. I'm still playing around with the sizing a bit, and because this is mine to keep I didn't have to worry about cake proportions (when they actually go on the cake I have to be carefull they are symetrical in order to fit properly on the top tier)

This is a bride I made for my portfolio with the kind permission of the model who is also an Artist on DA.
Because the nature of my work means I always have to give away the end product. I wanted to make one for myself to keep in order to show customers and take to wedding shows. The groom with follow eventually.  Cheesy
I wanted the dress to be in simple Empire lines, but would like your opinion on whether I should give her a veil and something on her top (I'm thinking a glitter trim.)
All comments welcome!

thank you craftewoman.  i don't dislike the large hands considering they are fairies and such - but i want to be able to choose to make them large  Smiley

She's very cute, I like her!!
A good rule of thumb for hand size, is to compare it to her face. Our hands when spread out are about as wide as our faces so if it looks like the hands seem big when you are making them just compare them to face and adjust accordingly. I hope that makes sense...

Your work is 18 miles of incredible--I've seen your cake toppers posted here before, and I'm always blown away, but this couple is ridiculously amazing. I'm especially enamored with his powdered wig. Love it love it love it!

Thanks so much!! It's very nice of you to say!
That wig actually took 2 hours to make just on its own, but I was very happy with the way it came out!
I have still not delivered it, so don't know what they think of it yet...Will update as soon as I can. Might post a new one in a couple of days.

The body structure is so real. Great work!!!! It's so hard for me to get it right!!!
Thanks so much!
I found that buying reference books helped me a lot, Catherine Dewey's Creating lifelike figures in Polymer Clay is an excellent start for example. There is also TONS of online tutorials which could really help you. Try Googling Polymer Figure Sculpting Tutorials

Thanks everyone, your comments are really encouraging!
I haven't delivered the topper yet due to the holidays but I'm hoping to do it next week. I don't have the couple's permission to put their photos up yet either, but hopefully they'll be ok with it and i'll let you know.
@Sillymadeleine: all it takes is a bunch of practice! if it's something you enjoy doing don't give up on it, it will eventually start falling into place!
