Week 47 Compilation Board!
Week Forty Seven in a snapshot 🙂
329 days down, 36 to go…
Day 329 – Microwave Puff Paint Fairy
I started by making microwave puff paint in four colours and putting into three . I drew the wings before adding the dress, skin and hair.
I “cooked” this in the microwave for 30 seconds and it puffed up!
Day 328 – Bubble Painted Fairy
Created by using an old favourite technique of bubble painting, I put paint and washing up liquid in various cups, blew bubbles into the cups before dabbing the page onto the bubbles.
Once dried, I cut out the shape of today’s fairy.
Day 8 – Melted Chocolate Fairy
A simple but effective technique for creating edible shapes!
I initially melted white chocolate to do the silhouette and thought to add milk chocolate for some details. This led to the food colouring coming out and me experimenting with colouring the white chocolate for the dress and shoes (they are supposed to be pink).
I put each variant of the melted chocolates in separate piping bags and traced the image of a fairy on some acetate using each colour for different parts of her body. I ended up doing her wings individually with some more tempered chocolate so they were shiny. This took about 10-15 minutes to set in the freezer, but I kept it in the fridge for another half an hour before I tried to remove them from the acetate to avoid any casualties.
