Beautiful Bullet Art From Crafted Ballistics

Well, I think I have just finished Christmas shopping for 90% of my friends and family. I recently stumbled across Crafted Ballistics, a small business that makes beautiful bullet and ammunition artwork worthy of prominent display in your home or office. Using ballistic gelatin to form perfectly expanded hollow points, a wide variety of calibers and cartridges can be embedded in clear and colored paperweights, knobs, handles, keychains and more.

Prices range from $50 to $150+ depending on options and sizes. Wait times for current orders are pushing three months, so if you are interested pickingĀ one up, the time to get in line is now.

Crafted Ballistics

The Process

Every piece made here at Crafted Ballistics is not mass produced and is 100% hand crafted with the utmost attention to detail. All bullets and projectiles are shot and recovered in a controlled environment. The capturing media that is used is a special blend of ballistics gel. After all shots have been fired, they are then collected in their most true blossomed form. From there they are then casted in resin for 24 hours to fully cure. After they have fully cured they are then sanded and polished to ensure the highest clarity possible in order to view every single detail from all angles. This may seem short but it is a very long and tedious process. Patience is the key in order to bring out the beauty of every single piece.

    Props to this guy for shooting stuff and then turning around and making a business from it! I have always wanted to do a sculpture of a firearm, firing in lucite. Just a millisecond after ignition. Hmmmm maybe that’s a project now for me hahaha.

    • Jonathan Gutierrez

  • valorius

    Overpriced…but still neat.

    • Jonathan Gutierrez

      Over priced for some im sure and i respect your opinion, i try to make all kinds of different types to suit everyone’s budget, to me at the end i see it as art and i cant put a price on it, but when i do some say its worth it and some say too expensive, sorry i cant please everyone.

      • valorius

        Like i said…it’s neat. Just more than i got to toss at something like that. But i hope you make $ Millions. I begrudge you nothing bro.
