Cake Topper by Switchum Cake Topper by Switchum
originally sculpted in wax, casted in resin. 7 inches tall with wooden round base. Made this for my buddy' wedding as a wedding gift. I did not have money. It is a cake topper. I was gonna title, "Game Over" But I am already disliked by his wife so decided not to.

O.O oh man... That's crazy.

I don't think it'll put anyone out of business though. In my experience people prefer to go to actual artists they know and such for these kinds of things :)

Maybe. I am sure some people would prefer physical craftspersonship, however price is the problem. I can give them the same quality of products but it will take way more time than the machine would. I will not be able to compete.
Many action figure companies already employs 3D scan machines to get figures made. They cut down the numbers of house sculptors, needless to say.
So all comes down to marketing. Haha

Yea I could see why factories and people who want something simple and easy wuld use a machine, but in the end when someones looking for something more personal theyre more likely to come to someone of your talent :)

No, to not make the title "Game Over".

I did not do casting; I had a friend do that for me. I bought the base from Hobby Lobby and stained it. So I did not make the base. Thanks for the compliment.

If you haven't thought about commercially selling them... then you are missing a huge opportunity. You could command hundreds of dollars for each unique wedding topper. Take a look on the net how much people charge for caricatures, they aren't half as good as that awesome piece right there.

Well, I heard it is freaking hard to make bride happy for their likeness. I don't think I will be happy making bunch of cake topper, either. Thanks for suggestion, though.
