Rice Art - Materials and Equipment

I was flabbergasted when reading that there are over 40,000 different types of rice. The grains seem to vary not only in size, but color as well. That would indicate that there are several types you could use without having to color them.

In order to create wall art, you would need tweezers to hold the grains for painting or carving, or to put them in to the desired spot. Cardboard or another sturdy material will serve well as a foundation and either craft glue or double adhesive paper are good materials keeping the grains in place.

For carving and painting, you could use a magnifying glass, preferably one that stands on its own keeping both hands free. A brush with just a single hair might be in order and for the carving some sharp pointed hobby knives or carving tools are required.

I have one little piece of advice: be sure not to drop your creation. It would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack!
