Framed in Pasta


I cut a circle of card by drawing round a bowl. I cut the middle out and glued a layer of raw pasta pieces all the way around the ring.  Once dry I added another layer over the top.  When that was dry I painted it with green patina eco-friendly paint.  I selected an image for the middle, a piece of ribbon to hang and attached everything to a cd for stability.

That is superb and the fragments on the frame are so well balanced. The finish of the paint has a lovely sheen.

This is fantastic, Sam! I did a make with lasagne a while ago but it was very different to this. This works so well as a frame and the shimmery colour is lovely,
