The Incredible Sculptures Made From Sticky Tape
These works of art are sure to stick in your head - as they've been sculpted entirely out of adhesive tape.
The amazing see-through models of a peacock, a galleon and hot air balloon are entries in a bizarre art competition.
They are made by sticking bits of tape together in a 'free-form' style or by wrapping them around objects which are then removed from the piece.
There are also models of a gun-toting arm emerging from a TV screen and a sweets vending machine.
The entries are typically made from between 30 and 50 rolls of tape and take days to complete.
Other materials, such as wire, cardboard and paint, can make up to ten per cent of the model if used to support or enhance it.
The models had to be made using Scotch packaging tape and the winning entry will receive £3,100 when judging takes place next month.
Keri Warren, from Scotch, said: 'We are excited by the amount of attention this competition has attracted.
'All entries are unique in their own way and I find the level of detail and creativity outstanding.
'Many of the entrants photograph their sculptures in settings that help to bring their pieces to life, which helps us all to relate them.
"The competition allows the entrants to develop and showcase their artistic talents with a medium that is outside the typical realm of artistry.'
