Before I started sculpting I carefully examined all the pictures my customer sent me and planned out exactly how I was going to create this couple. I drew a rough sketch of the bride and groom and covered it with tape to keep it clean and make sure it lasted through the entire project. This drawing will help me keep everything in the right proportion and size. Then I had to make the armatures, using my sketch to measure against. Since this sculpture will be sitting on top of a wedding cake I not only want it to be strong, but very lightweight as well. Pandaren have large, thick bodies and if I were to make them from solid clay not only would it be very expensive in terms of the amount of clay needed, but the sculpture would be pretty heavy. So I created a wire armature covered with foil for their bodies.
