More Fridge Dressing
Here are a few more of the goodies from the Salesman fridge.
Jam. These were made by putting tinted hot pour vinyl into vintage jam jars.
Pot Roast. This is repurposed from an old food prop I did a while back. It's chunks of upholstery foam, coated with flex glue, then painted with acrylics. It is garnished with micro-foam onions (one side sprayed red), hot pour vinyl gravy, hot pour vinyl onions (apparently, these people like onions), and silk foliage herbs. It is served on a bed of cotton batting mashed potatoes.
Tuna Noodle Casserole. Just like in the TV dinner! Real noodles, saw dust, flex glue, and mardi-gras bead peas. Yum!
I am a Props Crafts Artisan around Milwaukee, WI. During my six seasons at the Milwaukee Rep, I specialized in casting and molding, faux food creation, and other crafty business. I have a BA degree in theater, and I have been doing props on and off since 2001. In my free time, I enjoy crafting with my friends, doing yoga, and, drinking tasty beer. My husband, dogs, and I live in Milwaukee, in a house protected by our army of tiny ninjas. I also run a business called Tactile Craftworks with my amazing friend Sarah. (Check us out on Etsy, we make cool stuff.)
