Oh this is too great!  My hubby is a huge Seinfeld fan.  We just recently watched the episode "The fusilli Jerry" from season 6.  Kramer made a lovely statue of Jerry out of pasta.  Jerry: "Why fusilli?"   Kramer responded, "Because you're silly."  He went on to say he was going to make a George out of ravioli. Grin

Lol, that's what I was thinking of too!

Trying to talk my boy into letting me pasta him UP, but he wants me to do a couples shot of us, so if someone could come in and say "One person per portrait" that'd help Wink

I want to do this!  My attempy to create a teeny tiny challenge entry failed tremendously and I sustained a nasty hot glue gun burn on top of it.  I think I will use elmer's for my pasta portrait!  Wink

You can color your pasta with paint, ink, dye or markers.

How about glitter?  Grin  Can you color your pasta with glitter? My "subject" requires at least a few glittery accents. I want to make sure I'm within the rules and I don't want to use too much if it's frowned upon. You know how one can get carried away with glitter....  Cheesy

has anyone in here done one of these before? If I join in the run, I want to go all out, and have a portrait that lasts a while. When does your pasta go bad? I know some people talk about macaroni art from when they were little, but I don't remember doing any before.

My husband made this ship out of mostly pasta for Craft Challenge 12 http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=98811.0 and it lasted for several years. Actually, I bet we'd still have it if it wasn't knocked off the shelf and shattered upon impact with the tile floor.  Tongue

Dry pasta lasts pretty much forever, unless it gets damp. You could spray it with gloss or something.

As an indication, the holiday house I used to go to as a kid had a macaroni jesus on the wall, which was made by the kids of the owner in the 70s and is still there today.

I've never done a portrait out of pasta before. I'm going to try it.   Smiley   
I've only done pasta crafts with my children when they were little like picture frames & Christmas ornaments.
