Candy Sprinkles Art — Patience Required


From LikeCool: "Artist Joel Brochu created this piece using 221,184 nonpareil sprinkles painstakingly placed using jewelers' tweezers, adhering the sprinkles to a board with the help of double-sided tape and a thin layer of glue."


It's a photorealistic representation of Shingo Uchiyama's photo of a beagle (below).


"Only six colors of sprinkles — red, orange, green, blue, black, and white — were used."


The piece took 8 months to complete; it was such a long process that Brochu almost gave up. He said, "Halfway through, I was ready to abandon the project entirely. Looking at what remained to be done was daunting, but, at the same time I was dying to see the finished piece. I couldn't stop. I had to finish it. I wouldn't let myself give up no matter how much I wanted to."


The finished piece is 48 inches wide and 18 inches high.

Amazing. Sad to say that I doubt I could complete one eyeball.
