Buttery, luttery, la-dee-da, everybody sing about butter.
Far past the boredom of drawing a package of butter, we have the joy of drawing an antique wooden butter mold.
And now I feel like churning my own butter and putting little pats of it into different molds.
I have a book on crazy quilting where the author, Marsha Michler, made a quilt from rubbings of old butter molds that belonged to the guy who commissioned the quilt. It was gorgeous. Of course, when I went to buy an antique butter mold or stamp to try a similar thing, they were $200 each, so this was not an option for me, but wildly interesting nonetheless.
Materials I used:
Staedtler 2H pencil
Van Gogh watercolours
Faber-Castell Polychromos coloured pencils
No butter was harmed when drawing this sketch.
