A talented artist has made a life size mask of Darth Vader, using 1000 gummy bears.
The artist, who is from Orlando, Florida, is nicknamed Crummy Gummy is a huge Star Wars fan. He spent a whopping 65 hours carefully arranging and placing the sweets to form the mask.

He said: “I’m a huge Star Wars fan and when the new movie was announced I wanted to create something Star Wars-related. Darth Gummy took about 65 man hours in a month’s time to create. It was also created to be displayed at the Wyn317 gallery in Miami during Art Basel last month. Each individual bear is coated with polyurethane."
"This way the gummy bears are protected, don’t attract insects and last a very long time. The gummy Gladiator looks great and I still display it at gallery shows – I just don’t put it by direct sunlight as no good comes from that.I only used the red and orange ones; I had to properly dispose of the other colours by eating them.”
He had preciously created a Gladiators- style helmet from gummy bears too. To protect and preserve them, he coats his gummy bear creations with polyurethane – a polymer that lets them last while they are displayed in galleries.
