Who needs all that fancy makeup, special lighting and props. All one really needs to transform a human face into a crazy and sometimes horrifying glob is a little bit of scotch tape!

Photographer Wes Naman had that idea at least. He actually got the thought when he and his assistant were wrapping Christmas presents and starting toying with the sticky medium, contorting their faces till they were each nearly unrecognizable.

The result appears in a new series of photographs, some of which you can view right here. And by golly, try it out for yourselves and send us those pretty pics!
