This Talented Artist Makes Character Models Out of Babybel Wax

By Kim Snaith on at

When you've tucked into a bit of Babybel cheese, you probably don't give much consideration to the red wax other than tossing it into the bin. For Mitchell, a talented Newcastle man though, the wax is the most important part: he uses it to make incredibly detailed models.

While he only makes the models for his own leisure, he's gathered popularity recently after his sister-in-law set up a Facebook page in order to showcase some of his creations. Recently, he's been inundated with donations of Babybel wax, and a lot of interest from people wanting to purchase his work. So far though, they're not for sale — although Mitchell does accept requests if there's anything particular you'd like to see.

The amount of detail that goes into Mitchell's models is pretty incredible. The photos speak for themselves:

Red Dwarf

Wallace and Gromit
