once again, i want to thank everyone who has commented on this project over the months.

i am still getting inquiries from people who come across it here on craftster.

recently i did ANOTHER miniature fast food meal for a photo contest on another site and i thought it was only fair to share it with you.



it doesn't have the same impact that the burger does, i know, but i made it from cornish game hens and i baked the mini biscuits myself.

thanks for looking everyone!

i saw an interesting thing on PBS about people in advertising. . . .this analyst basically said that the influx of super clever and arty commercials and print ads that we have seen in the last two decades has risen out of the fact that most people involved in advertising don't really WANT to be in advertising, they secretly (or not so secretly) despise their line of work. . . and making those types of commercials is part of their desire to do something art-worthy in even the most remote way.

i suppose this might be one more aspect of that.  capitalizing on what consumers  like in the art/craft world while trying to legitimize themselves as artists.

i don't know, just a thought.

i haven't seen that commercial. . .where are you guys?  i wonder if it's a regional thing?

well, what can you do. . .it's not like someone couldn't have come up with the idea all on their own.

i think it's pretty cool, in a way.  in a horrible, marketing-sucks-the-life-out-of-everything kind of way.

FIFI - i was supposed to start painting in november and didn't get started until december 15th!  no good reason to wait!

naelany - i scanned old photos into my computer, fidgeted with them in photoshop a little bit, then printed them on LaserTran paper.  i let the paper dry for thirty minutes, cut out my images, and soaked them in warm water for a minute or so. . . .the image slides off of the paper backing and looks a bit like floppy film.. . .

i put the pictures onto ornaments that i purchased from Maryland China.  i carefully pushed out any air bubbles with my fingers and let the ornaments dry. 

when they were completely dry i sprayed them with a glossy finish to seal them against scratches.

i did the same thing for the pendant, adding the gold paint around the picture because the paper wasn't cut terribly straight!

the LaserTran paper scratches very easily when put on smooth surfaces. . . so i  definitely recommend sealing it with something.

certainly i'll tell you!

i printed the pictures on LaserTran transfer paper. . .it's a waterslide paper that allows the image to slide off of the backing and be affixed to pretty much anything (without fear of flipping the image).

i've used it on ceramic, wood, canvas, even paper.

it is supposed to be used with laser printers, but i've done all mine on inkjet without much difficulty.

it's a tad expensive, though. . .so i use it sparingly.
