Rice Mosaic ???
Anybody ever hear of rice mosaic? When I was a kid I used to make them. Somehow the rice was colored or dyed (maybe with easter egg dye - can't remember now). Next the outline is drawn on wood or cardboard. Then the rice is glued down, setting each grain of rice down with a tweezers or by hand one at a time (patience is a virtue) - I remember I made a rice rooster once - wish I still had him.
