Well, I thought that I have lost my skill in painting after the numerous surgeries I had to go thru since young. Until recently, I decided to paint again. But not on canvas. Its on sugar paste instead.
These delicate medallions look-alike were moulded from a plastic mould made for Moon cakes. WF said it look like chinese tiles. I guess it really does look like it.
It took me over 2.5 hours just to paint all of it. Its painted with food dyes and I had played around with colours, mix and using different techniques in painting which I learnt when I was a kid in school.
And though it was tedious, it was great to look at all of them when its done. Surprisingly, it looked nothing like sugarpaste but like a piece of mosaic or kitchen tile ! Like those tiles that adorned the front yard of an old Peranakan home.
I wanna try to paint my shetland sheepdog on a fondant next..I hope I find the time and energy for that..
