No syrup for these pancakes

My friend Susan Tilsley Manley uses rust to create images by carefully controlling the interaction between iron filings and fabric using freezer paper stencils. She creates amazing reproductions of photographs using multiple steps to ensure that the darkest areas have the most exposure and the lightest the least.

Nathan Reilly does the same thing with pancake batter without the aid of freezer paper. He starts with the shadows, let's them cook a while, then adds batter for the mid-tones, and then the light. Make sure to watch the video of him making beetles. Then scroll down on his blog to see more collections and portraits.

Many thanks to one of my favourite bloggers, Sandy Donabed of Waiting for the Muse, for pointing me to the pancake man.
