Hundreds of strands of polymer clay combine to create amazing portraits

Polymer Clay is a material generally used to create figurines and sculptures through various techniques of molding, baking, sanding, drilling, carving, and painting. But Washington DC-based illustrator Joseph Barbaccia has come up with a unique way of using the material to make portraits with a vibrant twist.

He rolls the polymer clay into hundreds of thin strands, separating each by color and laying them out one by one until the entire intricate picture comes together. The polymer clay gives the pieces a texture that makes it pop out and be more alive. Some of his works include President Barack Obama, Buddha on a tread mill, Totoro, and Rapunzel.
