Amazing Portrait from Thumb Tacks

Composite, Video 5 April 2012 0 Comments

Some artists are blessed with a great deal of talent and originality.  Brusspup is one of those artists.  He creates and uploads a lot of optical illusion videos on Youtube.  One of his latest ones, however, was his biggest effort yet.  Using approximately 15,000 push pins (thumb tacks), he created a portrait of a young woman.  In order to get all of the pins he needed in the correct colors, he estimates that he had to order approximately 40,000 pins in total.  Watch as the portrait comes to life in this time-lapse video.

When completed, the cork board and pins weighed around 40 pounds.   I wonder what he did with the other 25,000 pins that he ordered but did not use?
