Fruit Craft



I am forever indebted to my buddy Austin for finding these Buddha shaped pears and passing them on to me. They are beyond awesome. This from the site:

"I noticed people were selling shaped water melons for a good price, so I thought of doing something similar with my pears.
"It was more difficult than I expected. You have to test when the best time is to put the moulds on the pears is, and when to take them off again.
"If you leave the moulds on for too long, the pears start to rot inside. But I managed to work out the best way through trial and error."

  1. I heard someone talking about these on the radio. They're beautiful! .. almost too good to be true ... the skeptic in me keeps looking for evidence of Photoshop...
