Rivera reveals secrets behind Psylocke & Wolverine cake topper

You may recall Paolo Rivera’s incredible Herge-inspired wedding invitations and save-the-date cards, to say nothing of the Psylocke and Wolverine cake-topper that would put some of the competitors on Food Network Challenge to shame. Now the Eisner Award-winning artist is revealing how he sculpted the characters in a video that condenses the process from about 40 hours to three minutes and 17 seconds.

“Even taking shortcuts, I barely finished in time,” Rivera writes. “I had to bake Wolverine before I finished his arm so I could make a flight (to my wedding). I carried them on the plane with me in a small box (and the TSA didn’t even stop me — guess they don’t mind adamantium).”
