Graphical Candy

Graphical Candy consists of a thick, rectangular slab of white candy, covered on one side with a very thin layer of black or coloured candy, and then by a thin layer of white candy.

By means of very precise licking of the topmost white layer and underlying black layer, it should be possible to draw any desired image, limited only by the resolution of the tongue.

[EDIT: In line with the current zeitgeist, I should also mention that the candy comes wrapped, ironically, in plain paper which has absorbed the sound of passing bicycles.]

       What is 'candy'? Some Colonial abomination, no doubt.

       I would like to have a go with artist's paint brushes wetted with my saliva. Three D also possible.

       //What is 'candy'? Some Colonial abomination, no doubt.// I was trying to convey the concept of a flat boiled sweet, but as far as I can tell, "candy" is a generic term for such.

       Too bad if you have an irresolute tongue.

       // very thin layer of black ... candy //   

       Graphene ?   

       A layer of graphene interfoliated into a slab of white chocolate would seem to meet the requirement.

       Suddenly I'm hungry for cotton candy, pulled into the rough shape of a p-orbital.
