Carrot sized like a tooth, a sculpture made with dental technologies

Published on

This sculpture of Carrot is a present from a dentist friend named Gauthier. He made it from scratch with the same materials, tools and techniques used for modern dental prosthesis. A sort of 3D printing with a very hot baking step to obtain really strong and smooth materials. The various shades of colors were achieved with various baking durations. It's so tiny it was necessary to add a banana for scale. A big thanks to Gauthier for this original present! Here are more photos:



Aw. That's so cute. It must have taken quite a bit of skill to sculpt something that small, too. The details could be done with dental tools and a steady hand, and would still take skill, but that tail is so thin that it looks like it'd easily break while the material was still soft if not done carefully.

Dentists have the most delicate hands. Very impressive!

So cute and shiny I want to eat it... which would enrage Gauthier for two separate reasons...

You forgot to add it to the fan art site. ;-)
