This custom cake topper was a very special project for close friends…
He loves the Calgary Flames, so it was a great idea to dress him in a Flames jersey 😉 .
The cake topper were made of Super Sculpey Polymer Clay. It was sculpted in a neutral colour, then painted afterwards. I might try mixing clay colours next time instead of painting, as some of the crevices were hard to get to. I worked on the project over the course of a week, but all together I estimate that it took about 15-20 hours to do from start to finish.
I was inspired by Smellybugs Maquette Tutorial – a professional sculptor who was kind enough to post the steps of the making of an amazing fantasy creature out of Sculpey/polymer clay. If you are seriously into sculpting, you have the check it out his tutorial!
