Something Is Different About This Portrait. It’s Not Just A Dog.

This amazing portrait of a beagle taking a bath looks so incredibly realistic, but that’s not the only thing that’s special about it. Joel Brochu, the artists who brought this work to life, made it with sprinkles. Using over 220,000 of the tiny toppings, some double-sided tape, and a pair of tweezers, Brochu created something that looks so real, you can almost smell the wet dog. Almost.

Take a look!

Wow! That looks so life-like!

Aw! I don’t think this pup likes taking a bath.

I guess I wouldn’t either if I were made up of little sprinkles.

And lots of ’em!

Brochu used six different colors of sprinkles to make this portrait.

That is some seriously sweet detail.

Yes, It Really Is This Easy To Make Ice Cream At Home…WOW!

We all know that feeling…the one when an ice cream craving hits.

Usually, it can be satisfied simply by opening the freezer door and digging into a carton with a spoon. (If you’re more civil than I, you may delay gratification by scooping it into a bowl.)

But what if the worst thing happens? You have no more ice cream. It seems you overlooked the fact during your last trip to the store. Horror might set in…withdrawal…grief. But fear not!

Making your own icy treat at home is way easier than you ever knew.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • a bowl of ice
  • a Ziploc bag
  • 1/3 cup of half and half
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • whatever toppings your heart desires
