Actress Heather ‘Mitchell’s toast art has fans everywhere. Richard E Grant, who appears with Mitchell in the film Palm Beach, has a ‘toast’ portrait. Mitchell has been long experimenting with the lifespan of her artworks. The longevity of a toast’s life has been trial and error. Toasts from eight years ago are still going strong, some have cracked – and one gave birth to a family of moths.
“The toasts I make now are preserved in a solution, so although there is no guarantee of lasting a lifetime, they should survive intact many, many years if not dropped.”
