He Asked, She Said YES!

A darling Engagement Party Cake Topper!  Two little Bears in the Park... He's on one knee, holding THAT little black box, open with a diamond ring, and she's looking so happy and surprised!  A very sweet scene for sure!!!  I loved creating this one, and as I was creating it, my imagination was really going on all the other Engagement Scenes I want to create!!  There will definitely be more to come, but in the meantime, here's my Bears... They would also be a darling Wedding Cake Topper and of course, they are a wonderful keepsake to enjoy always!

A Moment Captured... A Dream Come True...

A Sneak Peek - Part III

Well, my Dragon Wedding Keepsake custom order is coming along so nicely, and the dragon now has his wings!  But first are a few pictures from Sneak Peeks I and II, so you can see how it's progressed so far.

The Dragon

The Dragon with the Bride and Groom

...And below are today's photographs...
For the wings, I created a foil and wire armature first.  After sculpting the clay over the armature to create the wings, I attached them to the dragon with wire.   I also created the brides beautiful cascading bouquet and the detail work on the grooms shirt... 

The wings span approximately 8" and they make such a great backdrop
 for the bride and groom.  I used a copper color mica powder on the wings 
to add dimension and bring out the detail...

 The bride's hair is pulled back in a double set of braids that come together in a bun.  
White flowers are placed in in her hair as well.

You can click the following links to see Part I and Part II of my 'Sneak Peek' posts, 
and soon I will share photographs of the finished piece...

A Sneak Peek - Part II

I am in the process of creating a Dragon wedding keepsake for a customer, and am enjoying this project so much!  You can see more about the very beginning of my dragon HERE, in Part I.  Today I am sharing a little more of the piece as it begins to 'come to life'!  I have created the bride and groom and placed them on the dragon's back.  The groom will be holding a shield and a special braided rope that is in the colors of both the bride and groom's family crests.  The bride will be holding a gorgeous cascading bouquet. 

Here's a picture from Sneak Peek I, just the dragon...

...And below is the dragon with the bride and groom added...

To be continued...  Part III will be the addition of the dragon's wings as well as some of the finishing touches on the bride and groom...
