A lot of time, and love, go into the making of my toppers. They are uniquely different from any other toppers you will find. Each topper is a quality, handmade piece of art.
All of my toppers are made with an all natural, biodegradable paper clay. It is an air dry clay that is very durable when dry.
I hand sculpt each piece. They are then dried for several days (ensuring strength), carefully sanded and then hand painted. No two toppers are exactly alike. Each has it's own "personality". This is also why my waiting list is so long. It takes several days to complete each set. These toppers, if treated properly, should last a lifetime.
Unlike ceramic, or even polymer clay, these toppers are SUPER lightweight. They are perfect for any cake, any frosting. Each of the Large birds weighs approx. 2.50 ounces, with the small ones weighing just .75 ounces each.
Each topper has a UV protective finish added with a second, super coat, added to the bottoms to protect them from moisture. Though your toppers should never be submerged in water, they can be wiped with a damp cloth to remove frosting or dust.
