do you paint it first and jellybean over it? wondered how you get the color between the beans? this is awsome!!!!!!!

No hon, for me that would make it too easy, I prefer the challenge of doing it without a pre-painting. Besides I can't stand painting a thing twice. So...my paint is the jelly beans themselves. And yes doing it that way does make the work process way harder than it need be because if you make a mistake, it's not easy to correct tho it CAN be corrected...again, not easily. If you look at the other jelly bean painting I did of Jerusalem (which is also posted on this board), scroll thru the pictures there and you will see all I do is make a drawing and then I just paint it in with the jelly beans.

By "the color in between the jelly beans" I am assuming you are referring to the dark outline like the one around the baby? That is black liquorice. Any other color showing would be hot glue. I use hot glue rather than any other glue. I tried other glues but I didn't trust their staying power; the hot glue method does the trick for me.
Glad you liked it!  Smiley

It is such a great picture, Check. But I'm sure I have seen it before, and lovede it. Maybe you have posted it in a tread or something like that?

I agree, I know I posted it somewhere, maybe it was put in as part of a another thread like you said because I do a lot of other crafts as well and did post on them, too. In any case I tried every which way keying in all sorts of key words to see if I could snag it, but nothing showed up.

Wow-wow-wow...I can't wait to look at your other work!

I thought you stippled(sp?) with paint, but JELLY BEANS...what an incredibly beautiful (and sweet!) piece. 

I would love my DENTIST to have this in his office (instead of a fish tank and to show a sense of humor)

...you tickle me, kcli!

Thank you everybody!! Your comments, questions and suggestions are all more than appreciated and welcomed by me. If you don't mind, I am posting this one post in answer to all of you.

Yes, I will no doubt do more JB paintings and I did put up another post for my other JB painting in response to your posts. That one is titled "Infant Sea" and it is my very favorite!

Heeeey...surely you know the staunch jelly bean law, right? It states, "If in hand, put in mouth!!!"  Grin
Also yes I use black licorice for my outining. Jerusalem is made up of jb's, licorice and hot glue. Let me explain that ANY painting whether it is jb's or not SHOULD be protected from heat and humidity. You will never see a painting on a wall in a museum opposite a window because even the sun is lethal to paintings. I keep my jbs in a room that is climate controlled (like any museum would do as well). I keep the air constioner on low in the summer. The winter needs no further precautionary methods as the cold is good for jbs. Just don't leave windows open, period. Bugs not a problem, don't know why, they just aren't otherwise I wouldn't leave my jbs all over the place in open tins as I do. I only put away the colors I no longer am working with. I keep those in plastic containers or bags - sealed. There is bureau I use to hold my stash for safe keeping.

About that dark blue sky. No hon...if you were standing in front of the painting and saw it in person...ugh! It would hit you hard. I know when I first designed Jerusalem I DID like the dark blue sky, it looked great in the pre-painting! But not so i when it was actually implemented and completed in the jb painting. I also took out the sun which I really, really liked, but it too was out of whack because of its position in the painting which didn't validate the shadows correctly. So...out that went too. Hated to do it, but...

Folks, thank you again for commenting, it's posts like these that inspire me as well. I really do appreciate all your support.

Wow. WOW!!! This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I congratulate you on your vision and patience in completing this project! I'd heard of using jelly beans for paintings before but I've never seen one like this. Absolutely wonderful, I love love love it. It sounds like a heck of a lot of work, but... imagine the possibilities! Do you think you'll do another jelly bean painting after this one is finished? I would love to see what you'd come up with next. And someone's probably asked this already, but how many beans did you consume while working?? Haha I love jelly beans, I don't think I would have been able to stop myself from munching along.
Congratulations on a wonderful piece!

Yes, I have been asked that question a lot. It is utterly impossible to NOT eat them! I DO try, and every once in awhile I succeed, not often (LOL) but every now and then. You just can't resist; the jelly bellies are just too darn delicious!! Also, I put up another post showing one other JB painting I did prior to this one. That one is titlled "Infant Sea." I will probably do more because I so like the mosaic effect the JBs create.

I thought I had posted this here but I searched the entire forum and it's not here so guess I didn't. In any case I have been asked if I did any other jelly paintings so I thought to add this in. It is the only other JB painting I did; it was done 4 yrs ago. This one is my favorite one because I love how the ocean shows graceful movement. The painting took me 2 mos to do and was wonderful fun. It is 5 ft across while Jerusalem is 8 ft across. But this painting which I have named "Infant Sea" is a tad bit different than Jerusalem because I employed other edibles in it as well the jelly beans. Look closely!
