With enough creativity, almost any material— from tennis rackets to honeycombs—can be used to create art. And compared to one artist’s chewing paper art, sculptor Bernie Mitchell’s choice of drywall as a medium is pretty tame. Still, it’s not a substance that’s immediately associated with artistic endeavors. Mitchell, however, makes it look easy.
In the video above, Mitchell uses a mix of all-purpose drywall compound and a setting compound to create a wilderness scene, complete with wolves, mountains, and happy little trees. He employs a variety of different tools to get the shapes just right—including a spoon.
