Announcement    Mixed media art combining my love for snarky and humorous words and phrases, real food, paint, and Liquitex medium and resin. Each piece is one-of-a-kind. I can create made-to-order mixed media paintings, magnets and pins. You can purchase my items locally from Booth 121 in Madison, WI! https://www.booth121.com/

*Please note, stock is low during Fall/Winter months, as I'm in a few local shows.
I won't be making any new pieces using Liquitex as the medium. I have moved solely to the use of resin. I can turn any of the Liquitex pieces into resin pieces by adding a coat over the already coated in Liquitex piece. Just specify when ordering. Please note, this will change the look of the item.

Thank you!

    People used to think I was a flawed individual because the things I wanted most in life (in order) were:
    - Bag O' Dicks Magnet
    - World Peace

    Now that I have a Bag O' Dicks Magnet, I am no longer flawed and I am a proud member of the 'World Peace' team. The dinner party invites are flowing in. My life and my fridge are forever changed for the better.

    When I was a fat little kid, I loved destroying bags of orange slices. Not the reward you got for standing around on the soccer field. The delicious, pure sugar imitation of a fruit that my dentist hated and my husky jeans loved. This magnet brought back that wonderful time in all its intensity. Super cool piece that’s well made and will adorn our fridge for years to come.

    Sometimes, there I am, I’m in the kitchen sippin’ Cuervo with no chaser, hot sauce out the bag, thinking about all these haters. I need a reminder that if I dream it, then I work hard, and twirl all over those haters. Then there it is, SLAY. I hop up and get at it, all because of the magnet. It’s bright, it’s light, to get me going again. Well made, and it’ll stay holding all of that paper.

About LiquitexLover

Sales 11
On Etsy since 2012

A mixed media artist addicted to real food art.

I opened my shop to give my fans a place to view and purchase my art online. I create 3D art pieces using real food and coating the entire piece in Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish or ArtResin. I did an entire series out of meat a few years ago and my friend said to me, "How do you know meat will work?" and I said, "I don't, but how fun this is!"

*Please note, I only use UPS and USPS shipping methods.
Custom pieces will take longer, so please expect those to ship in 2-3 weeks.

Thank you,

    Lover of vulgar and funny ideas combined with food. I coat all pieces in either coats of Liquitex or ArtResin. I want to make people laugh with my art. I am constantly experimenting.

Frequently asked questions
Does the food rot or mold?

I've been using food for over 10 years and so far, I haven't seen any molding with the food. However, that is not a guarantee that food won't ever mold. I have noticed some food changes color a bit over time. Because I have switched to resin, this should be less of a possibility.

Can I request an item to use other than food?

Of course! With a custom order, I will make every effort to fulfill your needs. Please specify when you purchase the custom order and depending on the item, I may have follow-up questions for you before I can start on the piece.

What kind of resin do you use?

I only use a brand called, "Art Resin." You can read about it here: https://www.artresin.com/

Do you spray the food with anything before using Liquitex or resin?

Yes, for the Liquitex pieces, I use Polycrylic and for the resin pieces, I use Environmental Technology Castin' Craft Resin Craft Surface Coat Spray.

Care instructions

Never put your piece in direct sunlight as both Liquitex and resin are not fade proof. Do not wipe with a wet cloth, always use a dry cloth if you need to wipe off your piece for dust, etc. Do not put anything on top of your piece or touch it excessively, as pressure and oils in your hands may cause damage.
