Eclectic Curiosity

Posted on February 22nd, 2004, by Steve Hardy in Archives, Uncategorized. No Comments

A while back I posted about a New Zealand artist that made his living creating portraits out of toast. Well, in a similar vein, you may want to swing by Gum Blondes to see what is being made of simple chewing gum. The brainchild of Ancaster Ontario-based Jason Kronenwald, Gum Blondes is a collection of supermodel photos recreated using only gum mounted on plywood.

No paint or dye is used. The colour is inherent to the gum – the mixing takes place inside the mouth during chewing an endless variety of flavours made by an endless variety of companies. Kronenwald has a dedicated team of chewers and prefers the texture of Trident.
