About Patchouli creations
Hi, I`m Julie, I live in the Rossendale valley in lancashire, I just love the tranquility and breathtaking views. It is from here I run my business Patchouli.
I have been a bear & doll artist for many years, I previously owned my own craft shops for 15 years and now am lucky enough to concentrate solely on my passion for creating Fimo clay characters.
I am also a qualified beauty/ therapist and reflexologist, but only practise my treatments with a few family and friends now as most of my time is taken up creating!
Celebration cake clay toppers, figures and gifts made from non toxic Fimo polymer clay.I really enjoy working with Fimo, it comes in a variety of wonderful colours and is so much more flexible than sugar paste, its added advantage is that once baked it produces a beautiful figure which if taken care of and not dropped should last a lifetime.
I was first asked to create a clay topper for a friends birthday cake ,followed by a character "mini me" figure for my brothers birthday, since then I have had lots of commissions for various toppers for celebration cakes.
The cake toppers are created working closely to the details and photos that you provide, they stand approx 5inches tall and you can have anything you wish, I am always happy to discuss your requirements with you, (a challenge or a theme I have not created before is always welcome).
On confirmation of your order I will ask for any photos, details/info e,g hair colouring, skin tone, eye colour, etc,
Hobby props can be incorporated into your topper as well as uniforms,
children, family pets etc,
Wedding toppers will be supplied on a fimo base adding stability to sit on top of your cake and therefore will not topple over. Names and dates can be added to the base at no extra charge.
I work hard to match as closely as possible the wedding outfits i.e wedding dress, grooms suit, any extra embellishments, e,g flowers, glasses etc.
Please note the cake toppers are caricatures. I will endeavour to create as close a likeness as possible
Whatever you are celebrating you can have a unique, one of a kind cake topper handcrafted and personalised to your individual requirements.
Patchouli cake toppers can be traditional or a little more adventurous and quirky! We can include family pets, children and various hobby props that reflect your personality.
All our toppers and gifts are created from fimo non toxic polymer clay and therefore are long lasting, unique and individual, unlike sugar figures they will not deteriorate. They are a wonderful keepsake to treasure forever
