I have to say that this was a first for me, outside of the few beach sandcastle builds of my youth, to create art from mud. For a series at our church called, “Stuck ‘n a Rut” our creative team came up with this unique branding idea. From the tracks in the mud left from a truck, I attempted to carve out the series title. We poured a little bit of water into each letter, added “fake” sprouts of grass, and took a picture!

This is the final branding image, after some editing, of course!

For an upcoming branding project at my church, we decided to try to play with new and interesting mediums…salt.

I built this very simple light table from some scrap wood and plexiglass, threw some basic table salt on it, and used weird objects as “my tools” and just experimented with different textures. For the final branding, we will use different types of salt, and possibly colors. We’ll see!

Here’s the light table:

We put a light underneath it and with all the lights off, it made some pretty sweet textures. What do you think?
