Any ideas how to create a baked/breaded/fried look? I am trying to make little fried raviolis out of paper for my St. Louis scrapbook. Glitter is too shiny, flocking powder isn't "crisp" enough (and I already have a bottle I barely use, the last thing I need is another color of it)... Maybe microbeads? Any other ideas?

Hey Andrea, why don't you do a google image search for the item you are talking about? Then you can print them out. How about using ink or chalk on the paper? How about embossing the paper?

My first thought is embossing powder, chalk, or Distress Inks...or some combination of those.

I LOVE the sandpaper idea! Thinking about stopping at the hardware store and getting a pack with a variety of coarseness so I can really play with my inks on it. Thanks, that plays right into the gritty look I'm wanting for this. One of my characteristic techniques is making small semi-realistic replicas of food for my pages - I've been doing it since at least 2005 or so, starting with donuts and pizza and Pocky, and I keep doing it, like a signature move.

Those are great pics on Google Image Search, and I do sometimes use that and Flickr to find pics when I didn't get good enough pics of a place or event, but in this case I'm doing like the food page in my Washington DC album and I'll be chronicling each restaurant, embellishments and journaling and all, in a 4x6 inch space.

I absolutely love this Andrea. I was thinking you could use paper and some crackle stuff but a fine grade sandpaper would be perfect! Great suggestion!

I'd also try sandpaper and ink it if it isn't the right color.

I found a pack of six small sheets (two each of three different grits) for $2 at Menards a couple days ago, and the food page is one of only two remaining pages for that album, so I should be done soon. Unless I use a really fine grit it may be kind of hard to make them look stuffed. I'm thinking about using some red Stickles to make a puddle of marinara, with some very tiny die cut leaves stuck in it like bits of parsley or cilantro.

could you use some pop dots to "puff" up the ravioli in the center? Sounds delicious.
