Hey friend! Well, these latest projects of mine are taking on lives of their own! Mass producing items, fixing problems, waiting for supplies. Sometimes things just don’t go smoothly, behind the scenes. I do have 1 new project to share with you, however! It’s part of a larger series I’m working on – and still trouble shooting some issues.
This will definitely put you in mind of warmer weather! These popsicles took a week to do – one day per colour, so that each layer didn’t blend into the next! As you may recall, I’ve been working on putting together a schedule of monthly challenges for the Brusho group that I’m in. Each month is a challenge to create art in a different type, or style. Well, one of the months is going to be Pop Art, which made me want to do this!
Doesn’t this put you in mind of Andy Warhol? I will be doing another type like this, but with 4 differently coloured solid colour popsicles, a la Warhol, as well. As you can see, there’s a total of 7 layers, in rainbow order – ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet). The sticks are transparent acrylic, with bits of coloured foil in them.
I attached the popsicles directly onto the front of the plexiglass of the frame. I left the backing white, so that the colours would be highly visible.
Each popsicle measures approximately 2″ wide, 3.75″ long (without stick) and .75″ thick. That’s lots of dimension!
Each layer is resin tinted with alcohol inks, making them translucent. They look like real popsicles – just much heavier!
Once I have more items in this series ready, I’ll be putting them in my online Shop for purchase! This is a fun series, which I know will be awesome conversation starters, and objet d’art to have in your home.
Thanks for visiting today – and I hope that you’ll drop me a comment, to let me know what you think of the popsicles!
