WIP_07

This was a custom wedding cake topper, based on a caricature of the Bride & Groom as “Bewitched” (the TV show).

It is 3d Printed in full-color sandstone on Shapeways. This process prints a binder on a bed of gypsum powder, layer by layer. The finished product is essentially full-color plaster, so a little fragile, but perfect for this application.

I started with this characture supplied by the client, and then built an armature in ZBrush to sculpt the figurine.

The painting is also done digitally inside of ZBrush, then a model is exported that contains the shape and color information. Shapeways then prints the model and ships it to the customer!

It is a unique cake topper that will be a treasured keepsake for the bride and groom!
