Ok, so here is the deal. I decorated cakes for a couple years, and now I working in paper clay. It is totally food safe, completely non toxic. All of these pieces are made of paper clay and I think they would make cute cake toppers for special occasions. So, not only could you use them at weddings, but Christmas, Easter, birthdays, whatever! What do ya think?
Adorable...I especially like Santa!
I love those, especially the Santa! You have some very talented finger making those figures!
How creative and cute they are!! You did a great job!!
they are very cute.
question - would they get soft sitting on buttercream or fondant?
Wow!!! Just adorable! You are very talented!!
I think they are great. You are talented and they would make great cake toppers.
You could so sell those to decorators for cakes, or to cake clients themselves for sure.
Those are really good; soon you'll be modeling the actual groom and his fiancée.
They're great....I love the Santa.
Can you tell me more about this paper clay...I've heard of some other product that they use in the UK and I'm wondering if it's similiar.
Is it light in weight?? I have a topper to make soon and I was going to make it from Polymer clay, but I'm afraid of the weight of it.
You can PM me if you like
Those are wonderful you are quite the artist.
I was wondering if moisture affects the paper clay though. What do you seal it with and what kind of paint do you use? Or do you use some kind of plastic base? Sorry so many questions.
You guys are all so kind!!!!! Thanks for all the compliments! Paper clay is awesome, I actually started with polymer clay, and I will never go back!!! Polymer clay has plastic in it, making it so it is not food safe. Also it is VERY heavy, where as Paper Clay is not, it is very light weight. As far as moisture is concerned only the base of the sculpture would touch the cake so, I would put some sort of paper barrier. Feel free to ask more questions!
Really adorable! The Santa reminds me of Patience Brewsters ornaments called Krinkles from Dept. 56.
Really cute! What is paper clay?
Those are so cute, you did a wonderful job.
Good work as always Meghan! Really cute.
My vote is for the egg and chick.
I just looked it up and it does look like fun. Can this be bought at Michaels or any other craft store? If so..what section is it usually in?
How adorable! You really are talented!
Those are great!!! You are very talented.
I work with polymer (necklaces and ornaments and such) and I love it. Is the paper clay baked? Is it similar consistency to polymer?
Just wanted to say you are very talented and I think any of the toppers you made would be exceedingly sellable. I especially like the pixie one.
These are really cute. I especially love the Santa. Is it easy to work with and is it like paper maiche?
Thanks again everybody! The only place Ive bben able to buy paper clay is at Michaels. It is easy to work with once you get the hang of it. It is an all natural product made of clay and paper, it is similar to paper mache. I have been doing craft shows and have been selling my stuff there but it SO much work. So maybe Ill check out some bakeries to see if they would be interested! Oh, you dont have to bake it, it air dries, but if you want to speed up the process you can throw it in the oven at a very low temp!
Very cute! Great job.
They look great. Its exciting to find new food safe products to go on cakes!
VEry nice, good job
Your santa is fabulous!!!
this is probably a very dumb question - but i will ask anyway..... Can U eat this stuff? You are very talented by the way, do u do any work with sugarpaste?
