Burnt-Match Portraits Made as Novel Hobby
Making portraits with burnt matches is the unusual spare-time hobby of H. E. Moulds, a hairdresser of Worthing, England. Building up the faces of his subjects by placing matches side by side, Moulds uses the burnt ends to provide the shading for hair and facial features. One of his unusual works of art is a picture of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. He is shown at the left putting the finishing touches on a match portrait of Winston Churchill, British statesman.
