Jelly Belly was back at NYCC this year, along with Artist in Residence Kristen Cumings who was there to complete her Lord Voldemort portrait made completely out of jelly beans. Her normal process is to use acrylic paint for the portrait that is underneath and spray adhesive for the beans. Normally whole beans are used throughout the process but occasionally half would be needed for an eye or nostril depending on the subject.
Kristen is a big fan of Harry Potter, so it was a great honor to complete another portrait in the series. She has completed Harry Potter and Hermoine Granger at previous shows, (on display in Jelly Belly’s booth) but Lord Voldemort was requested by Jelly Belly due to their latest product – his wand in chocolate.
