Take a look at some of her amazing works below! I simply can’t imagine how she is able to fold that tiny crane.

When I first saw Kangbin’s cremart, I thought that were some painting at the bottom of the coffee cup and don’t think that was a big deal at all. However, after I watch closely and found out those paintings were drawn with a thin metal rod and a palette of food dyes on latte, I was totally shocked and didn’t want to believe my eyes. How would that be possible? Are those just some photoshopped photos? After watching Kangbin’s video of how to make some of the cremart, I started to believe there is someone can actually create latte art like these. From Bambi to Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night”to Disney’s cartoon characters, it looks like there’s virtually nothing he can’t draw on milk foam. Now the question is if you have such a cup of latte in front of you, will you really want to drink it?
These gorgeous green plants are not some new rose breed, even though they are in the perfectly floral shape. Called Greenovia Dodrentalis, these succulents have curved layered petals that make the plants look just like roses.

However, it is quite hard to find and most of us, probably can only enjoy their photos instead of having them in pots.
