Making Polymer Clay Food Safe

I have been asked to make tiny penguins to go on a cake. The customer wants to put them straight onto the icing, is there a glaze or sealant I could use to make this food safe?

Kind regards,

You always have the most interesting posts. I never thought of this question, but it's a good one. Good answer, too!

The next question would be,are Shellac NF or carnauba wax compatible with polymer clay? Many finishes people have tried on baked polymer clay sometimes go on great but days, months or even years later react with the polymer clay and become sticky.

Great comment, Trish. I would have to look into that, but perhaps you already know. If so, please feel free to add to this thread.

In any case, my response to Gillian was with respect to little penguins to be put on top of cake icing.

Gillian didn't mention whether the penguins might become keepsakes. That info would be a nice addition or "BTW" comment here.
