Chocolate Box Mixed Media Art

I've been playing with polymer clay tiles on chocolate boxes.  I love this new look!  It's feels like eating a leather bound chocolate romance novel with my eyes.

Okay, that's a stretch, but I actually assess art like that.  Is it a treat for the eyes?  And if so, what kind of treat?  Or, if not, what is undigestable about it?  Yes I do have food issues, but I think it makes life fun.  Have you ever consumed a sunset with your eyes?  Or more to the point, with you whole being?

I used brown clay for both the chocolates and tiles.  I treated the tiles with rubber stamps and metallic paste.  The focal point is a tiny heart cut from clay with red crafting foil burnished onto it.

I've been putting words and gems on the chocolates, but I wanted to carry over the sophisticated feeling of the stamped clay on these.  I know I've barely scratched the surface of possibilities for design, surface treatment and theme.  I have many rectangle chocolate boxes as well.  I also have larger heart shaped boxes.  So many choices!

Have you made any chocolate art?  I would love to share it here!  Email me at candace@cool2craft.com with high resolution photos and stories.
