Paper Maché Fruit - Peter Black

Care for a bite?

Paper Maché Apple and Pear

Perhaps you'd better not... these incredibly realistic pieces of fruit are paper maché!

I spotted Peter Black's photos via his Flickrstream and just had to share some of the apples, pears, and avocados he skillfully creates.

Peter, originally from Poland and now residing in England, makes the fruit from recycled paper pulp. When dry, each hollow piece is painted with watercolors, then he applies satin yacht varnish to achieve what appears to be a natural luster.

Lastly, Peter adds a real stem to each piece of fruit so it is even more convincing.

See more of his photos on Flickr.
