Some Second Attempts

Recently I have remade some projects for a second time. This includes the pizza, brisket and sushi.

The meat color is tricky. See my previous attempt for more details. What I changed was:
  • I added a little bit of translucent to the meat dough. I just chopped it in, not blended. 
  • With red chalk I added more to the smoke ring.
  • I added some brown chalk caramelized areas to the flesh. 
  • Darker crust (black chalk) and tried to make the edges of the slices sloppier. (with a tooth pick)

 Here is my first attempt at pizza.  What I have changed is the sauce and cheese.

  • Now I make the crust then fill the entire base with tomato sauce. Making sure to spill some on the crust. Bake for 5-10min.
  • Then slop on some liquid cheese (liquid translucent, white and a little yellow). Also drape some cheese strings over the crust. You can brush chalk on these pieces to make them look toasted.  Finally add the toppings and any chalk detailing.

I forgot to texture the crust with a toothbrush. It made a HUGE difference. It looks a lot less real.
Good crust (textured with a toothbrush), not great cheese
I have blogged about sushi a few times. The newest thing I have changed was the:
  • little seaweed wraps on the pieces of sushi.
  • More garnish. A slide of lime or orange and some wasabi (I used wasabi colored clay with a little translucent mixed in.
