Artist creates photorealistic portraits, galaxies and intricate meals using nothing but salt. Using salt he dyes himself, Afghan-Canadian artist Bashir Sultani spends up to five hours creating each of his masterpieces. His pieces can use between ten and 20 full salt shakers and, since he started experimenting with salt, he has taken over 100 time lapses of his creations for his YouTube channel.

In this video, you can check him out creating a yummy hamburger, a scary skull, very lifelike pickle, and also some famous fictitious and real people. His talent is undeniable, and also very creative. All of his works are very lifelike, especially the food (kinda makes you want to eat it, but it's probably really, really salty). But probably the most satisfying part of the video is the part where he goes through the salt with his hands, destroying his masterpieces only to create new ones.

Would you consider trying to paint with salt yourself? You may not be this good, but it's a really fun activity that you can do with your kids, and it requires ingredients that you probably already have at home. Give it a try, maybe with some hard practice, you can create incredible and intricate masterpieces yourself.
