What do you do with over 5,000 unused pantone paint chips? Why make it into a picture! British artist Tim Fraser Brown created a cool reproduction of Édouard Manet’s ‘Bar at the Folies Bergere’ entirely of old pantone chips.

The chips not only had to be laboriously colour matched, but attached to the canvas too - a process that took four long nights. The close-up picture shows the individual paint chips with the shade name and code still on them.

Brown created the piece specifically as a centerpiece for a studio boozy party. Stats for Pantone Chip Mosaics Trending: Older & Chilly
