It looks like a normal picture. But when you look closer your jaw will drop!


When the Mexican painter Christiam Ramos got tired of pumping out more pictures for the "Home & Garden" section at Walmart, he opted for an unusual method instead: he grabbed a tube of toothpaste and doodled away. A couple hours later, even he was astonished at the end product.
Here you can see the artist at work:
First things first: mixing the right colors together. Good thing you can find tooth paste in any color imaginable!

Sometimes Christian Ramos applies the toothpaste directly on the canvas. That makes things move a bit quicker.

And after what is sometimes 200 hours of work and the use of, on average, 30 tubes of toothpaste, he has reached his end goal.

And here a video of his special work:


Just take a second to imagine this: on average he needs up to 200 hours and 30 tubes of toothpaste. "Painting with toothpaste isn't so simple as you think," says Ramos. "I have to work quickly because the paste dries fast and gets crumbly. That minty fresh smell also gets on your nerves at some point!" One of his last works was a portrait of the recently deceased Robin Williams. He wants to auction it and donate the proceeds to a fund to help people with depression. What a great idea!
