Three design students at Royal College of Art, London, have teamed up for a fun project about creating photography filters out of... sugar. "The Lomo Filter Kreator Kit is reintroducing the art of using photographic filters and gives the user full creative control," says project manager Morten Grønning Nielsen. "Having three silicon trays, one for flat filters, one for gradients and one for vignettes, the user can create filters in unlimited colours and compositions. The process is outrageously simple, using a special sugar called Isomalt, and sugarcolours, the filters can be created in a household microwave or oven. If they scratch they can be remolded into a new filter or even consumed. Making one filter takes about 2 minutes to create and 10 minutes to cool down. Using our kit, you could make around 50 filters for $10 worth of isomalt." To learn more, visit the project's home page on Behance.
