Uurequited Breakfast in Bed is complete!





Unrequited Breakfast in Bed: Cake!
paper mache, acrylic and mixed media
2013
10"w x 10"l x 5"h

Created with S.P.A.C.E. Gallery's February Valentine's Day show, Broken Hearts, in mind.
Unrequited Breakfast in Bed is a four part series of life-size, paper mache food gone bad.  
Unrequited is unreciprocated and obviously these once tasty treats were not meet 
with loving surprise and were not eaten as is the intent of breakfast in bed.

The creation process allowed me to include "before" picture of each piece.
It's interesting to see the transformation a little acrylic paint and cotton can do.






Unrequited Breakfast in Bed: Cinnamon Bun
paper mache, acrylic and mixed media
2013
9"w x 9"l x 4.5"h

To create icing I mixed wood glue with a drop of acrylic paint
and drizzled it on as though I was making the real thing.

And before...






Unrequited Breakfast in Bed: Corn Muffin
paper mache, acrylic and mixed media
2013
9"w x 9"l x 3.5"h


A real paper muffin cup helped shape this piece.

And before...





Unrequited Breakfast in Bed: Toast
paper mache, acrylic and mixed media
2013
10"w x 10"l x 4"h


To create grape jelly I mixed high-gloss gel medium with blue and purple 
acrylic paint.  I compared it with the real product and once satisfied with the color, 
I smeared it on the bread with a kitchen knife so it had a more realistic spread.

And before...
