Drip painting is an unconventional form of painting that can be utilized in many interesting ways.

Artist Ben Dehaan used the concept of drip painting for his work 'Uncured.' The paintings are created with the use of print loaded with ultraviolet cured ink, which helps create the disturbing melted faces. The paintings are uncured and flat and positioned vertically to let the ink drip. Usually the only time you see melted faces are in a horror sequence in some B-movie.

The inventive way of using drip painting will have people lining up to see Dehaan's works. The process of Dehaan's melted face works can be seen on his website, which is both disturbing and captivating. Stats for Disturbing Melted Face Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
