Aluminum Foil Creations

Mario

The Japanese artist Makaon uses the aluminum from old soda cans to create beautiful 3 dimensional works of art.  The majority of his work come from video games, but there are a few other things there notable Buzz & Woody from Toy Story.

Buzz

I like how he used the natural color of the metal to bring out the color of the characters.  Instead of painting it, and relying on after effects to get the look he wanted.  I like aluminum, it just so happens to be my 3rd favorite metal, behind Copper & Silver.  Aluminum is nice because it’s easy to work with and cheap.  Cheap enough to make these ace reproductions anyway.

Although, I kind of wish he made one of The Terminator (The 800 series), and then slowly lowered the aluminum body into a pit of molten metal (which could also be aluminum).  That would be so meta, (I think I’m using that phrase right).
