this weeks art experience I decided to use sugar to make art. I decided to use only sugar because my stove decided not to work this weekend and i had remembered that i saw a video of someone making art with salt, so sugar was the solution. My first attempt at using the sugar I used a ruler to make a simple scene of a palm tree at the beach.
I used the back end of a paint brush to put in lines where needed. After I finished that I thought I should have made something more challenging and went on to make a lion face out of only sugar. I started off my making the nose/snout of the lion then moved on to making the rest of the face.
The difficult part is putting the right amount of sugar to show depth and shadows. 20 minutes later I finished and admired my work.and maybe even a little taste =)
Overall the experience was fun and also very difficult but still super fun. would love to practice and make it look even better.
