Art materials from fire

I just can't help but be pleased with myself this morning. Fed up with ordering sticks of charcoal for my art at ridiculous prices I decided to make my own and what a success. It's really simple to do and exceptionally satisfying. All you need is a buscuit tin some twigs and a fire. Having had the tin in for about 3 hours here are the results.

I shall be using these in my next set of abstract seascapes which make fantastic little gifts or just bring a touch of colour to that small space.The other additional advantage of course is that you get to eat a whole load of chocolate biscuits too, doubley satisfying :0)
