Produce Prints

It’s fun to make prints with veggies! You can use the “not-so-fresh” ones, and also the “ends”. Be sure not to use vegetables that are too soft, though. For these prints, I used a cut brussels sprout, the end of a bunch of celery and the end of a carrot (the rest became a snack!), and a cross-section of a bruised apple.DSCN0998 DSCN0992 DSCN0996 Blot the cut sides of the vegetables on paper to take out some of the moisture. Pour a small amount of water-base paint onto a plate, and either dip in the cut side of the veggie, or brush the paint on the surface. Experiment with shapes, colors, patterns and creativity!
