Mon­ster fun

Get cre­ative with a cour­gette!

Sculpt­ing veg into new shapes can give your food pho­tog­ra­phy a new spin. We’ve been do­ing it for our­selves, dis­sect­ing a se­lec­tion of cour­gettes into ‘ter­ri­fy­ing’ sea mon­sters.

This pro­ject is per­fect for a rainy day. You can set ev­ery­thing up in the com­fort of your own kitchen; all you’ll need is some sculpt­able food, a knife and a touch of imag­i­na­tion. For an ef­fec­tive im­age, think about the back­ground. Coloured ma­te­ri­als can en­hance the scene – we used a blue base for our aquatic crea­ture. On the other hand, a plain sur­face of a sim­i­lar colour to your food blends in to cre­ate a more min­i­mal­ist feel.

If you’d like to try your hand at some mouth­wa­ter­ing sculpt­ing, get craft­ing your own food-based scene…
