Sugar Painting

There are so many different mediums you can use to create art; paint, colored pencils, watercolor, digital work and more! What about sugar though? In Asia there are street vendors that don’t just sell sweet treats. They sell treats that are incredible works of art. Sugar painting is a traditional Chinese form of art. Check out a few of these mesmerizing videos. The control of the liquid sugar is just unbelievable. I’d probably just make a mess if I tried!
