Malay Wedding,
Malay's Bride & Groom Wedding Outfit Mini Figurine

I'd been invited to attend Malay Wedding several times by my friends. The bride and groom were treated like a royalty on that day.

They were seated at the stage with glittering outfits, decorations, live performances, foods and people chatting at every corners. 

The scene I would never forget is the Malay's bride and groom wedding outfit. 

It seems that the theme of the party in term of color and shape in sync with the couple's outfit.

So if the couple wearing green and purple outfit for example, I will see green and purple color in other elements like flowers, cake, table and room decorations, and so on. They are all beautiful!

I captured one of those moments in Malay wedding by creating a mini figurine of the bride and groom. Hope you like it.

  • For the body wrapper (Sarung) I used purple color clay. make a pipe shape and than flatten it with clay rolling pin. Decorate this with gold glitter glue and wrap it around the body.


  • Roll a ball shape clay in skin color, and indent the middle of the ball with your finger. Insert toothpick to hold the head until it's dry.
  • Attach the nose, ears and draw the eyes with black marker.
  • Cover the head with black clay and draw the lines for hair.

Body Parts:

  • Start with a cone clay shape for the body. Let it dry.
  • Roll a thin layer of clay for dress with the length slightly shorter than the body. Make a fabric texture by using texture rolling pin, real fabric texture, needle, or anything that can be used around you. Wrap it around the body.
  • Roll two small cone shape for the arm. 
  • Roll two skin clay color to oval shape, flatten it and cut for the thumb and attach it to the arms.

  • Make the head shape similar to the groom, draw the feature and add the hair with curly fringe on the forehead.

When the bodies and heads are dry, join them with white glue and you have bride and groom mini figurine that you can normally see at Malay wedding ceremony.
