Gosh that is BEAUTIFUL !!

Good Job, like Miss.GrahamCracker:  I want to know how you did it as I have my eye on a WeddingStar Cake Topper that I am thinking modifying / customizing / personalizing as well.

Any info much appreciated…

Few more Questions…

I take it then you CHOSE NOT to order the Cake Topper with the customized hair colours… but did it yourself (did I read that part right… you just ordered the standard one… which had the basic colours already done)

And while you were at it, you decided you’d just paint the rest of the elements to personalize your look

Did you have to pre-treat the cake topper in any way before you applied your own colours ?

You said 2 coats… Did the MS Paint go on easy enough… good coverage etc?

Where did you buy the MS Paint (Michaels is what I am assuming)

And lastly, any other tips ???
