I chose to do a Zebra for my Zoo Hop bento. I’m not sure why, I already have ideas for monkeys, penguins and owls etc. But I chose Zebra. Probably because I like Zebras.
I really like how it came out. Everything is painted on using black gel food colors. We’ve got a Zebra striped piece of cheese concealing some apple slices. And zebra striped Wheat Thins (only the top few are painted) I really like how these turned out. And of course the Zebra PB&J.
I really should give props to a couple of people. Everything I know about painting zebra stripes I learned from Sweet Sugarbell. And I’m absolutely in love with the image transfer technique I learned from Karen at Whats In Our Lunch Bags.
