Eat the Paint + Happy Thanksgiving!
As today is Thanksgiving in the US, it seemed only appropriate to post something festive and food related. A couple weeks ago at the American Friends of the Musée D’Orsay gala (see post here) I was introduced to Eat the Paint, an interactive an engaging party activity.
Artist/painter Mark Alsterlind was behind the evening’s activity, and had prepped the edible palette and canvas and needed our help to bring it to life. (It’s not often who see people dressed in their best black tie affair getting into chocolate paint).
Mark had outlined a scene of Paris. It came a bit like paint by numbers.
During the course of the evening, everything was filled in.
Once the masterpieces–all 5 of them–were complete [see top image], two layers of chocolate – white and milk – were added on top of the color to serve as a backing to the artwork.
Then it was cut into pieces, bagged and became the perfect parting gift for guests. Unfortunately, I was too busy helping out to get a shot of a bagged chocolate, but guests were thrilled and had so much fun finding the pieces they helped paint. The best part was there was no experience required. Click here for more on Eat the Paint!
