Watching this artist mix her paints is our new Instagram obsession

Annette Labedski is an artist whose finished works we aren’t interested in. Instead, it’s her paint mixing method that really gets us going. Shaping her acrylics into all manner of edible objects — macarons, cupcakes, Oreos, fried eggs — as well as inedible ones like the cute ‘Kitties Playing in The Grass’ (below), when she takes to them with her sharp mixing blade, everything comes oozing out, transforming, sometimes surprisingly, into gorgeous bold hues. ‘Oddly satisfying’ as described by Labedski’s captivated online audience, we suggest you indulge in Annette’s feed, @annettelabedski, for yourself.
