UPI News Service, 03/26/2013 

A Kentucky man has carved out a unique niche for his business by turning peanut shells into mini statues of celebrities and other people.

Steve Casino, 47, of Fort Thomas, Ky., said his project started with a statue of The Ramones singer Joey Ramone and he has since created tiny statues of Elton John, Sean Connery as James Bond, Gomez and Morticia Addams, Andy Warhol and several other celebrities using peanut shells for the bodies and craft supplies, including bamboo skewers, wood filler and embroidery floss, for limbs and other details, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Tuesday.

"Mostly, these are people that I like but I'm doing them for hire now so I'm creating complete strangers," Casino said.

Casino said his customers on www.stevecasino.com include Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor, who requested his own likeness as well as statues of his wife and two children.

Casino said he hopes to display his celebrities, which will soon add Freddy Mercury and Pee Wee Herman to their ranks, at a gallery in the future.
