Sugar, Fire, and Tea

How do you make a logo out of sugar and tea? We came upon this artist in Ouarzazate, Morocco, who makes paintings from green tea and sugar (and sometimes saffron and indigo). The mixture is clear as he paints it — and then he holds it over a flame to bring out the image. We showed him our Morocco Library Project logo (at left), and he produced his own version. Watch it come to life in 2 minutes.  ~ Barb
