Ketchup Typography (continued)

Worked more on our spread for Editorial today  – so much better than my [first attempt]. Definitely had a fun time trying to think out of the box for the headline text. Since our spread is about McDonald’s chicken nuggets, it lent itself perfectly to writing in ketchup! Straight up ketchup from a bottle, however, is a wee bit liquid-y and not conducive to writing at all. Cornstarch swirled in (mixed using your finger in the school bathrooms – while hoping no one walks in) works wonderfully!

Pretty happy with how the text turned out. I ended up piping it through an icing bag from back when I took cake decorating classes. The second image is my test run – hence the large mess!

Stay tuned early next week for the final editorial spread!
