The top of the bottle

How many of you have ever even given a thought to the bottle cap on the top of an old fashioned soda bottle?  Have you ever thought of making that little cap into a work of art?  I am sure the answer is no, but after looking at these artworks that are made from bottle caps maybe you will think differently.

These are bottle caps on a car.  Yes, a car.

Now will you at least look at those caps and see what colors they have on them before you throw them away?

Jumping paint

How can paint jump you might ask?  Well artist Martin Klimas has found a way to make paint jump and then photograph it.  In order to take his shots he has to set his shutter speed to 1/7000th of a second.

But how does he get the paint to jump?  I am curious what you think would make the paint fly through the air like it is in these shots.

I love the colors he chooses, and I love how the paint is starting to mix and swirl as it flies into the air.  But that brings me back to my main question, how does he do it?  What is he using to make the paint fly?

The first correct answer gets double points.

Need a refill??

So what is the strangest medium you could think someone would recreate the image of the Mona Lisa in?

She has been done in candy, and tools, but what might seem stranger yet??


How about this?  

Did you guess what they used to make this image??
I will give an extra blog post to the first person to tell me what they used and how they made it look like different tints and shades.
