You Won't Believe What These Space-Inspired Images are Actually Made Of

We've heard of playing with your food, but this is insane.

Instagram account @wanderprobe has been using a pretty unconventional medium to make some seriously cool photos. The account boasts gorgeous, out-of-this-world images, made using an Epson scanner and various food and household products.

Let's play a fun game—can you guess what the scene is made of?

"Planet made from a glass of water, whiskey, coconut milk, soy sauce and food coloring. Background made from salt, flour, cinnamon and curry powder." 


Um, wow. The level of creativity (and time) it took to create these is straight-up impressive. The images are beautiful, even if "cat hair on scanner" doesn't sound like the most elegant medium. Check out more here.
