Veg i inked today!!!

Thursday night again folks, time to get yourself a cuppa, take the weight off of your feet and spend a few minutes of your week in the capable hands of a guy they said would never escape! :)
.
This week has been a bit of a difficult one for me as far as the veg inking is concerned. Believe it or not i am running low on veg that is good to ink. There are some veg that i could ink, but know from practise runs that they are rubbish, and not even worthy to be seen here.
.
So today i just hoped for the best during my visit to the grocers and something little. So give a warm welcome to......the SUGAR SNAP PEA!!!
.

.
The pictures just don't do these peas justice! They did dry out quite fast which always leads to dulling, but they did well to retain at least some colour.
.
.
Maybe not the best place to try out my new Brights alcohol inks, you can't see how totally cool these new inks are on a pea....but i cannot recommend them enough for those of you who don't have them already.
.
.
The most common question i get from bloggers is simply "Why?". Well i like the fact that you can take something that we don't usually look twice at, and turn it into something that is worth a second look.
.
This one below reminds me of a big fish for some reason. :)
.
.
Veginkability for the sugar snap peas? Well they didn't ink as well as expected. but then again I'm definitely seeing a pattern in what makes a veg good to ink. The shiny skin. This just doesn't fit the bill.....then again it did result in at least some colour.....so i think I'm going to go with a 4 this week.
.
I am a bit disappointed that the Brights didn't reveal themselves as well as i would have hoped, they really are the most gorgeous of colours. Next week i will endeavour to give you something much brighter to view!
.
Thanks for looking everyone, I'd better go and check on what Rotty is up to, you just never know with him these days!
.
Night all. :)

I just wanna know...what do u do with these inked veggies when u r done?? :)

Calv said...

Hi Jane, sometimes they get kept in my freezer, but often it's off to that big vegetable patch in the sky for them. :)

Unfortunately only a few have survived the test of time and otherwise go mouldy. Still, they are nice to look at while they last. :)

Thanks for stopping by Jane. :)

These look fab Calvin. They'd be great hung in a bunch. Chillies would be good like that too ~ ever done chillies before? xx

Don't think your veggies match up to your fruits! You'll never beat the pineapple!

Calv said...

I've not tried a chillie yet Sarah, now theres a thought!

Ruth you are right...so far...that sounds like a challenge so i'll sort myself out and see what i can do! :)
