Toast Art

Toast art.Lennie Payne, an acclaimed "Toast Artist", creates works of art with slices of bread. The explaination of the whole process by Lennie is as follows:

"When bread is dry, it won't degrade or go moldy, so by flattening the bread, and then lacquering it, to keep the moisture out, the bread stays dry and won’t rot. This is done after the bread has been toasted. You use a gas blowtorch to scorch the bread and turn it black, and then scrap away the burnt bread to create different tonal values. Once the bread is lacquered on all sides, which helps to vitrify the bread, it is stuck onto a base with some silicone adhesive."
