I’m always amazed at what artists can make out of the simplest of materials.  For example, there is a man by the name of Bashir Sultani who makes exquisite looking art out of nothing more than table salt.  The same stuff we consume to shrink our arteries can also be used to make life-like portraits.  Sultani has a host of famous movie characters done in salt form on his YouTube channel, but the Darth Vader one obviously stuck out to me.  Luckily for us Sultani captures his artistic process using time lapsed video, so we can see him whip up a Salt Vader in under 3 minutes.  I highly suggest checking out this process below, as it’s mind boggling to someone like me who has the artistic talents of a 3 year-old.  Say what you will about them, but artists are something amazing.  You’ve been needing a talent so you can be famous on YouTube…
