ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
From November 2011, a set of photos documenting the creation of a sugar skull-and-bones set that can be served with macabre beverages, designed by Snow Violent and made by DR.HC.
Skull Sugar — from sketch to prototype. Part 1
(via Crazy Abalone)
The link doesn’t seem to document much of anything – just a few photos of the finished product.
I was hoping it would describe how they were made.
As was I. Silicone molds? 3D printer? Hand carved from a block of sugar? Assembled a molecule at a time in a matter compiler?
My fiancee is putting on a thoroughly bent “Alice-In-Wonderland”-themed high tea party in a few months, and she simply MUST know how to make those. Please don’t make my life miserable until then.
Sadly the person who made the prototype no long has a DA account so no hope of finding drawings or information there….
Ok this mold I found online looks right for the head…
The final skulls look a bit smoother so I wonder if they used a finer sugar… but I’m having problems seeing details in the images today…
These would be freaking perfect for an Absinthe bar.
