A few years ago, a friend was telling me how foods like carrots and potatoes to can be carved out to make stamps for printing on clothes and stuff. And because of their density and other delicious vegetable qualities, they work surprisingly well. Then somewhere from this conversation, the idea come up to try the same thing but with bread. Which for printings sake, does not have the same qualities as carrots or potatoes. But we tried it anyway and I’m glad we did.
Since then, I’ve made quite a few shirts and ruined a lot of possible sandwiches. Plus, since no two pieces of bread are exactly the same, each shirt is slightly different than the next. Perhaps one day bread will overtake snowflakes as the symbol for being unique.
If you’d like to make one for yourself, here’s what you’ll need:
01. A shirt
02. A loaf of bread (find a loaf with a nice iconic bread shape. You’d be surprised at how much bread isn’t baked this way)
03. Fabric paint
04. Paint brush
05. A human torso
