Working with strange media to create amazing art is always exciting, so this bottle cap portrait is an inventive and awe-inspiring piece of art. The portrait is by and of Mary Ellen Croteau and is meticulously crafted using thousands of colored bottle caps.

When someone seeks to do a self-portrait it can be difficult to capture their own essence in art form and that's with ordinary pencils or paint. Imagine using colored bottle caps to make a realistic portrayal of oneself, the creative logistics behind it are insane.

This bottle cap portrait, called Close, is about 56 square feet and was made entirely by just looking at a small shot of her own face. The process of the creation is also partially documented to show the before and after.
