21  cake topper...again in Weddings and Bridal Showers by Gente de Massinha on: March 09, 2008 07:01:40 PM
Hi, don't sure about the category... please move to polymer clay if necessary.
Well, my colleague married yesterday and asked me to make his cake topper.
The last time i put my hands in clay was one year ago, so... no perfect, but i`m happy with the piece and he liked it too  Wink

The photos:

The politic party flag, notebook, cellphone and newspaper... (politic kit  Cheesy)

the details.

The air dry clay recipe:

PVA Glue (2 cup);
Corn starch (2 cup);
liquid vaseline (1 soup spoon);
lemon juice (1 soup spoon);
hand cream without fat (1 soup spoon).

Put the liquid ingredients in a Teflon pot, them put the glue and the corn starch (Maizena).
Mix, mix, mix...
When it is "plain", cook it, always mixing.
when it made a soft ball (no hard), put it in a stone surface with cream (no fat).
Beat the clay for about 10 minutes or till the clay is elastic and plain.
Put it in plasticfilm (without air) and use  Wink
You can tinted it with food or PVA paint pigment or acrylic paint.

Thank for reading and please excuse my bad english,

Hi, this is my first post, so... sorry for any errors.
My brother is now married  Cheesy and he asked me to make his cake topper. Well... ages since I did anything in "biscuit", but, how could I say no???

The fist option for the head, more "cartoon":

And, the second option:

They chose the first. And, the final look:

Thank you for looking  Smiley
