Something I haven’t “gone public” with before now, is the fact that I’ve put my son KC on a Dye-Free Diet. He’s been (artificial) Dye Free since about April of last year. With AMAZING results.
As you can imagine not being able to use standard food colors has put one of my favorite things, bread drawings, on the no-no list. I mean, take a look at the top of my page. I love using colors!
However, not to be put off for long. I’ve been experimenting with natural food colors. My favorite color to draw with is brown. I think it looks nicest on the bread and just recently, I transformed one of my old Americolor food markers to a natural brown marker. Yay me!
With my new (natural) brown food color marker in hand, I made today’s Werewolf Lunch. I think he looks really cool. And before you say, “that’s nice, but I can’t do that”, think again. I traced this design. TRACED?! Yes traced. There are a lot of transfer methods you can experiment with (check out my pinterest board to find most) but my current favorite is using my ipad and a cool tracing app. It was SO easy.
I don’t have a nice stand for my iPad (yet) so I just prop it up on a couple of hefty tomato sauce cans and load it up with an image of a printable coloring page I found online. And started tracing away.
It was easy and FUN!
For the record this is a Fun Lunch Blog. I don’t plan to blog about a Dye Free diet. If you are interested in learning more… Everything I know about being Dye Free I learned here at Die Food Dye dot com.
