A Wedding Topper Cyclist



My consignment of clay arrived and this is the result. Hope you like it. Please feel free to leave any comments concerning anything on my blog. Thanks.
A wedding cake topper for the cyclists among you. I must admit this bicycle took a bit of doing, trying to keep it upright while it was cooking.



Next came his legs, feet and body.




Then his waistcoat, jacket and head.




He is holding onto the back of the bike (this also helped to steady things), he now has his hair and a flower in his lapel.




Handsome!




Now for his Bride, with her cocktail stick neck.



She has a bouquet of lavender and white roses and very small pearl buttons on the back of her dress. She also has the same flowers in her hair. Now all that is left to do is give them both eyes to see the world, hope you like them so far.



Now they can both see, shoes polished, tyres washed all ready for the big day.



Gazing up with adoration!



The back view, I only put a pedal on this side as the other was hidden by her dress. Hope you can see the pearl buttons down the back of her dress.


And this is Fido .................... waiting for a game of ball. Little accessories can be added into the mix.

Hi Judith. I gasped looking at the photos. They are absolutely fabulous. Thanks for the diary of photos, it's amazing looking at the figures grow. You are obviously enjoying making them. You're a clever lady. Hope Bertie is well.
Thinking of you

Well done Judith, fabulous results! You've captured a wonderful sense of connection between the two figurines. Ah-may-zing!

I'm absolutely blown over by these, Judith, the detail is amazing, right down to those little seed beads on the bride's dress. Stunning!
