I had leftover carrots, so today they are paired with a bologna sandwich with some cheese on the side. The bread: slices of cork, the bologna: slices of pink pencil erasers and the cheese: slices of yellow erasers. The same yellow erasers I used for the yellow egg yolk in egg salad. The mustard is yellow ochre paint.
I save lots of little things I think I might be able to use. Corks are one of those things. I've already used an artificial cork to make chicken salad, and as I was cutting up the cork the slices looked like sliced turkey breast, but I really wanted to have a vegetable with the turkey.
It just came to me...toothpicks! I cut some pieces of toothpick and use cadmium orange paint, and I had carrots. The gravy is brown paint mixed with white glue. Nest I want to make a turkey plate with peas. But I'm still working on it.
Lately we seem to be drinking a little more wine than usual, and of course I always need to save the corks. For this project you need a synthetic cork, a real one won't work.
We are going to make chicken salad.
The cork cuts very easily with an exacto knife. Cut it into little pieces. Cut as many as you need.
Mix the pieces with some white acrylic paint. pile onto your favorite bread. The bread here is salt bread.
This one would be for a very hungry person, I think it's piled rather high.
Welcome to my Blog.
My name is Carol Graham and I've been making 1/12" miniatures since I was a kid, long before I had any free cash to spend. I started this blog to dispel fears that this hobby needs to be expensive. It doesn't and I'll try to demonstrate that through my tutorials.
