25-year-old sugar cookie

Preserved in acrylic gel medium. It is from the last batch my grandmother ever made. I keep it in my toolbox. Except for 30% shrinkage, it remains unchanged and is a testimony to acrylic's ability to preserve most anything. In 2017, this inspired me to heavily gesso Chinet plates and paint on them.
