Where form meets function

Steve Casino, Painter of Nuts, has unveiled a new video demonstrating how he turned a peanut into a KAWS Companion figure. All in all, the project took more than 20 hours to complete, during a four-step process.

Upon removing the nut from the shell, Casino then sealed the shell with archival urethane. Next up, he glued the shells back together and made use of molded clay in order to create form. After the piece was baked to set and hardened, the artists painted and coated it with clear acrylic.
