We Made These Paintings With 100% FOOD

today’s video we’re going to try to follow along with a bob ross tutorial but using pudding instead of paint [Music] cali have you ever painted a bob ross style painting before i i have not nate but i’m going to go ahead and say that we’re already off to an odd start just on a hunch i’ve done a few of them this is actually a combination of like i bought kits twice because it was the best way to get more of the brushes but it does have a lot of good supplies in it so here’s the idea we’re going to choose a bob ross painting that we want to follow along with on youtube okay then we’re going to follow along but instead of using oil-based paints like i have in the box and like the videos recommend we’re going to use pudding colored with food coloring the idea today is simple we’re going to follow along with a tutorial from a bob ross video but rather than using the oil paint that he usually uses we’re going to try to use food coloring and pudding to see if we can make a masterpiece i think rosanna pansino did this with frosting and i’ve seen a lot of other interesting takes on bob ross paintings before i think drawing with jazza has done a few different versions like listening but not seeing the instructions and stuff like that um we’re gonna be viewing it watching it but pudding is not the same as oil paint it’s different consistency i don’t know how close we’re gonna be able to get the colors it’s gonna be fun to try though oh good and i have no clue if the traditional wet on wet style which lets the paints blend together really nicely will work at all with pudding so whatever we end up with is going to be a bit of a fun mystery but i bet it’s going to be a lot better tasting than any other bob ross painting so yeah we’ve got all these pudding cups we’ve got a good collection of gel colorings okay as well as i’ve got a few more here including white and black white may or may not be able to do anything to the rather opaque pudding but we’ll give it a shot i think this is how we find out okay so should we start with just mixing some colors let’s start by getting our canvases set up and then choosing the video we want and in every video of course he tells you which colors you’re going to need so that we can mix up our colors perfect i’m just gonna done okay i’m set up so we are all set up in our new art studio uh i’m starting out with cutting a duct tape circle because bob ross told me to i haven’t i have no duct tape circle on mine what i am just going to start doing is something very common is an entire coating of white over the entire canvas very very thin like as thin as i can put it on there and the other paints are supposed to blend with that now with oil paints they take days or weeks to completely dry pudding probably doesn’t take that long so i don’t know how well this is actually going to work but i’m going to try it anyway just pretending that these pudding paints are the same as oil paints so we’re gonna try it out but yeah my first step is i’m just gonna put a very thin layer of white over the whole thing and i’m just gonna start following the instructions and see what kind of results i can get i think this is my sun for the sunset now the problem is the painting that i chose unfortunately you’re supposed to start out with a yellow canvas and i’m not starting out with a yellow canvas so the colors will be a little bit off but that’s okay i think a lot of this is going to be off in some way so we’re trying to make colors that are going to approximate everything that we’re doing so right now i’m just trying to make the cleanest white i can a titanium white the opacity of the pudding is not wanting to work with it and everything i ever learned in my paint classes was don’t use black for shadows but that’s not necessarily what we’re doing here [Music] oh my gosh it actually works what bob ross didn’t use a heat gun in his paintings weird it’s working though nice it’s actually working okay i will get it my yellow base canvas [Music] [Music] i’m glad that he says things like in your world you can put clouds wherever you want because my clouds are not looking like his clouds partly it’s lack of practice i think at some point bob ross said he estimated he had painted like 30 to 40 000 paintings in his lifetime i have not so i don’t have his level of practice plus he wasn’t using pudding so you know everyone’s good at different things mmm whole studio smells like cooked pudding you’re welcome if you have ever tried to follow along with a bob ross painting you may have noticed that he’s a lot faster than than you can paint it’s really hard to keep up with him and there’s a few reasons for that one is years and years and years and years of practice two is an ideal setup where everything is right where he wants it but three is he’s actually using he’s got like five of every brush ready to go right in front of him and so if he needs to just grab a clean brush he can just grab one he doesn’t have to clean it off although you see him cleaning his brushes quite often but partly it’s that he already has clean brushes and you know they might even be fairly new so that like they you know they haven’t always fanned out like this one has here so he does have some advantages the biggest advantage is just massive amounts of practice but uh equipment is another one and the official bob ross brand brushes are not super cheap they’re not like way more expensive than other paint brushes but they aren’t the cheapest brushes one advantage of pudding though it’s definitely cheaper than the oil-based paints all right trying the mountains with the palette knife this is this is gonna be a thing man this is pudding is much thinner than the paint you’re supposed to use for bob ross style [Music] [Music] okay i’m coming up on uh what i was kind of most afraid of in this whole process he’s got a very interesting way of applying snow to mountains that involves just casually very lightly dragging a palette knife with colored paint over other paint and when he does it the paint breaks and just sticks in little tiny spots and it leaves this very very organic very natural looking dispersion for all the all the mountains all the snow on the mountains and uh if the texture of the paint is completely off it may not quite work out the same way so uh i’m a little nervous about this i’m going to give it a shot i don’t have really high hopes for it looking very good but i’ll try it anyway hey it worked oh my gosh that worked a thousand times better than i thought it was going to it’s not amazing but it’s way better all right you can paint with pudding and get it to break on the mountain [Music] all right now i’m doing something that if you’ve ever done or even watched a bob ross painting he does and he’ll get to this point where he like has mostly a finished painting and then he’s like and now we’re going to add a tree to the middle of it and it’s terrifying that one he’s just like okay i’ll just draw a giant dark streak across my painting that i’ve been working on for a while now where’s my tree i like it i see you just did one very similar i’ve never seen a bob ross painting like this before which is one of the reasons i thought it was like interesting i’ll do that it’s looking a little bit more van gogh than i would have thought just get a second this tree’s got a friend he made me do three nate it’s pretty scary all right so our paintings or the approximation of our finished so this wasn’t a normal looking bob ross painting to begin with but i actually really love it like up close i don’t like it but from right here okay and i think nate you pointed out you wouldn’t know that these are made out of pudding i am very surprised at how much it looks like paint i did not see that coming i thought it was going to be way more muddled and washed out this worked pretty well and and even like the the blending techniques of the wet on wet worked pretty well with pudding so i’m quite happy with this i added a few trees that he didn’t have because i did a bad job of like getting everything the same scale so i’ve just had this white spot so i just threw a few trees on he would i’m sure have approved um the biggest issue with using pudding is that actually some of the white isn’t holding its color so i actually went in and added a little bit more snow on the mountains because it started turning transparent same with my little waterfalls down here you can sort of see it started to mix a little bit with the blue behind it and they’re just starting to turn green pudding is not as opaque as white paint so it’s not a perfect medium but it worked pretty well and yeah that’s a painting made of pudding guys that’s not all we’ve always
