Man creates models out of cheese wax

For 20 years, Mitchell McLanaghan has turned his hand to producing striking models with painstaking detail... out of Babybel cheese wax.

Using the red wrappers, the 32-year-old's impressive portfolio includes everything from Disney, Star Wars, Red Dwarf and Lord of the Rings characters, to fruit and vegetables, Halloween, Christmas and Easter scenes.

And his work has earned him a legion of fans bewildered by his creations.

Babybel itself sent him a package of cheese.

 

Is that it...a packet of cheese? How about a load of wax and maybe a job in their advertising department?  Could use his models in their adverts.

It was a "package" they sent him. It could have contained quite a lot.

Hope so...it would take a lot of them little things to make:

Mitchell says it takes a lot of wax to build the models - six pieces would only be enough to make a small ball - so he often makes sculptures and then dismantles them to re-use the wax.

Those are pretty neat.  The guy himself though...  he has some kind of manic or deranged look in his eyes.

They're really good. Why don't they invest in some medium similar to that wax and see what he can do with it.
