Summer Fantasy Cake

Summer Fantasy Cake
Altered Art Painting

by Chris Plastic




This is a fantastical cake painted in watercolours on a paint chip.
It is loaded with strawberries and orange and lemon slices.
The lowest tiers are layered with lady fingers,
the bottom row of which are dipped in chocolate.

The paint chip has not been altered, other than by my painting,
in other words it has not been cut and the hole at the
bottom left was there originally.
Also note that the above image has been formatted
with the frame and title
to personalize the setting here.
Below is how the painting actually appears,
although a bit smaller and the colours
not quite so saturated.
Also the flowers are more pink,
as opposed to the mauve they appear here.



Due to the nature of the piece, there could be no corrections,
so this was all very carefully sketched on here
and then delicately painted.
The piece is 3 x 5 3/8" and is initialed and dated
at the bottom left hand corner.
It will have a clear coating applied so that painting doesn't rub off.

The original of this item is listed on eBay
and there is also a section in my Cafe Press shop
with a number of items
featuring this design.
