Wedding Cake toppers
By: Molly Wagner
Category: Craft Painting
Products Used:  
FolkArt Paint
Apple Barrel Paint

If you've seen these custom wedding cake toppers on Etsy or elsewhere across the internet recently, and love them but don't want to pay the high price, then why not paint your own?

1. You'll need the peg people, which are found in most craft stores
2.With a small flat brush, paint a triangle for the white tux collar, as well as the brides dress.
3. Paint the tuxedo to match your custom wedding colors. Also, add a bit of light shading and shadow onto the dress to add the look of a bit of texture.
4 Add your bride and grooms hair and eyes. Be particular about hairstyle and color as well as eye color.
5. Add the details to the tux and gown, again to match your custom wedding style. (i.ec. bow tie and silver sash)
6. Final details. Using a script brush, add your brides bouquet and the grooms boutonniere. This is also the time to add glasses, earrings, a hair bow, necklace, or any other details to your bridal pair. You'll want to put a protective finish on these.
