Amateur Latte Art Challenge 2018

Recommended Posts

If no one steps up then I am willing and able - or I will be when I’ve read up on past LACs if you give me a day or two.

 

Edit to add: and only if @Snakehips will assist and offer advice seeing as he’s such an experienced forum addict!

@MildredM You get my vote!!!! And don’t forget.... we love it when you’re strict!

 

As a competitor, number one seed and bookies favourite I’m not sure how much organisational involvement it would be politic for me to have. However, my assistance will be there if you need it.

Don't worry!

You overdid it, already.

Right now.

I am still studying past LACs and it is starting to make sense. May need a bit of advice @Mrboots2u or previous organisers. It looks like it is all going to kick off soon though :)

@joey24dirt Is that a serious request?

I'm currently very busy practicing my steaming and latte art and anyway, I can't dance!

 

Of course J24D was serious, @Snakehips. Can you get the band together in time and knock something up? Any old rough and ready performance will do, there’s no need to put yourself out much.

 

Looking to launch Sunday or Monday :) :)

@MildredM This could be your lucky day...... I have a ProDucktion that may just fit the bill.

It's not old, in fact it's brand spanking new, but it is ready and it's as rough as they come.

 

If this might be of interest to you then please do let me know and we can negotiate publication rights.

I will get my agent to speak to your . . . . or we can just agree between ourselves. I’ve got 34p in my pocket, that should cover it :)

And one day I'll be able to tell my grandchildren that I‘ve been part of it. Somehow.

Good idea....... let's cut out the middle men.

34p !!!! I'm up for that ! Plus Postage and packing of course.

 

Shall we move to PM and ask a Mod to mark it as a done deal?

Will you take 37p? I’m not paying postage. That’s my final offer.

At this late stage of the proceedings I don't suppose I have much flipping option, do I ? :(

This place gets more and more like FleaBay every week!

Ah you’re being modest here; what does it make a difference if you end up keeping it as the winner anyway :p

 

love the pink accents on this one but for what it’s worth I think it’s slightly haphazard so I’m throwing my vote in for the first! Also massive thanks to you for not just volunteering a prize but for getting this whole thing started!

Haha this is working out great for me yeah if you look you can see the two “standard” patterns in that one. Quite tricky to line up.

Really gutted to have missed this. Didn’t even notice it was going on or I would have entered.

 

Anyway, I’ll enjoy voting in the polls and hopefully get in on the action next time...

I have my suspicions who sent it (@Glenn was it you?) so I’m truly thankful for it.

 

It was a fantastic contest and great fun to be a part of. Looking forward to the next instalment
