You kidding me right… nope… black garlic… it is AMAZING, says on the container YuHongYuan peeled black garlic head – ready to eat and cooking. You have to know that I was not going to pass an opportunity to try it out. Delicious.
Got it at the check out aisle of the local T & T Asian grocery store. I do believe T & T has a website, you can likely find their other locations by checking the web. You store it in a cool dry place. room temperature, avoid sunlight. It is a product of China, imported by Uncle T foods, Richmond, BC.
Now.. please allow me to thank everyone who commented on the mixed media book cover, I’ve now finished with the one that I started the other day. At least for now.
It was a learning experience for me. I especially liked the texture and look of the Sludge that I got from DeSerres, you can’t see the reharvested copper cinder, because when it dried, it dried clear, but you can feel the texture when you are touching the various parts of the cover where it was used. The particles are in a professional grade gel medium. Product is TriArt’s reharvested series.
I used two different batches of Sludge, #29211 ( deep forest greens) Batch 27783 is deep purples. Sludge is made from 100% recycled pigments harvested from TriArt’s washing process. Remember if you want to be sure the colours are going to be similar .. use the same batch number, the shades can vary from batch to batch. Again you will find this product at DeSerres.
Crackling acquired by using Distress crackle paint, this is a Rangers product. I used clear rock candy in this project. IMPORTANT, allow the medium to dry on its own. I believe you get better results by being patient.
I’m keen to start another one, but first, I need to catch up on the cards for the church. Hearts and Flowers month will soon be here, and I need to get some special cards done for our PL Card table.
Happy dabbling and playing. When you do something, do it with a happy and joyful intent. Pl Precept # 2 To live is to Express One’s self.
