Introduction: D'OH! Homer Simpson Groom's Cake Figure

Picture of D'OH! Homer Simpson Groom's Cake Figure

With little notice I was asked to make a figure for a wedding. Well I just happened to have a new bag of Sculpey Ultra Light handy and decided that would be a good trial run for it. I made Homer in 9 main parts, the head, torso, shoulders, arms , legs and feet. 
Shaping the head was he hardest part, he ended up a bit squished on the sides.
I sculpted 8 parts for just the head but joined them together before baking (275° for 15 minutes per 1/4" of thickness.)
The arms/ hands were pretty easy as I just rolled them out to the general shape, flattened the end for the hand and used scissors for cutting out fingers. Once cut I gently rounded each finger and shaped into a grasping pose.
The torso was made over a brass incense cone so I didn't have to use as much material and to shorten the baking time.
Each part was sanded enough to remove finger prints and defects.
I used some cheap Walmart craft paint and a fine sharpie for the hair and can labels.

Material:
Ultra Light Sculpey (or equvilant)
hobby knife
sandpaper
paint
fine tipped marker
oven (or toaster oven)

i don't think that's really appropriate it's great but you would have to get the bride drunk for her to accept it

did they mind that this was on their wedding cake? i mean, was it like a real fancy wedding or did the couple have a sense of humor? Great either way

It was with the grooms cake, they are usually something the groom likes. This was next to a giant donut.

When I get a picture of him and the cake I'll post that for the full effect.
