Artsy Fartsy Friday (OK...Saturday) Cotton Candy Making at Ciqikou, Chongqing




I am always in awe of artists who create art that is so delicate or that is gone in the blink of an eye after creating it.

                      Remember going to the  fair as a kid? Remember the one thing that you would get there (and really the only time that you might have this?)....Cotton candy! That sugary "fairy candy" that would disappear as soon as it touched your tongue.

            What does that have to do with art?
                  Well, I came across a video of a street vendor making Cotton Candy art....It is amazing the control he has with the spun sugar.

Cool right? Did you see when he handed it over to the young lady you could almost read her thoughts....She's thinking..." This is too pretty to eat!"

  5. holy moly so freaking creative.

    All I can say is I tried to work the cotton at my previous church carnival and thought I was going to become a cotton ball myself. I give probs to anyone who can make that look great because I just ended up wearing it from head to toe ... lol
