a what the heck evening - I did this earlier for the weekly B&W challenge and it didn't come out too badly. I do however need to figure out a better way to suspend the sugar lump - sticky dots just don't work

Clever stuff, nicely done.
Monofill half pound fishing line available at all good fishing tackle shops threaded through the t-bag and super-glued to the sugar lump. The fishing line is almost invisible to the naked eye and what you might be able to see would simply clone away......Should cost no more than a few quid. Always have it in my macro studio for shooting bugs and such like........Another one of my secrets gone Great effort Ali.
Thanks everyone - it's definitely one I plan to try again
Thanks for the tip Ade - I've some 6lb fishing line that someone gave me which is fine for the heavy stuff (despite it being a horrible yellowy colour) but I could do with something lighter. That said, the nylon sewing thread I use is excellent for most purposes but sticky dots just aren't good enough for sugar lumps it seems - must buy superglue too......
A great image Cat, "Is this a follow on from the MNC?", simply love it.

Well everything was still in place from Monday so I figured I may as well use it again before I put it all away. However it may well get played with again come the weekend
Take a shot of your sugar lump on a black background. Put it into Photoshop and remove it from the black background.. Hey presto!!!
That is an option Stephen - though I prefer to set it all up 'for real' if I can - it's all part of the challenge you know
