For a long time my husband and I have been talking about wanting to have Cthulhu cake toppers for the wedding (he is really into H.P. Lovecraft and used to run a lot of Lovecraftian role-playing games in university).
So I did my best to make Cthulhu cake toppers, and I thought they turned out okay! Here's how I made them…
I used emerald, black, and white polymer clay (Fimo soft) for the modelling.
I had nail art tools, cocktail sticks, cutting blades, and lots of patience.
I also realized that if you don't have rubbing alcohol to wipe the work before baking, you can substitute it with vodka!
I look forward to explaining what they are to my future husband's conservative relatives.
