Images from the collection follow, and here's more on the project:

Candylebrity is a sugary new series of candy portraits inspired by Hollywood’s sweetest stars. Lickable ladies like Lisa Vanderpump, Big Ang, and Miley Cyrus will be there. Don’t forget about the Man-Candy! James Franco, Breaking Bad’s Walter and Jesse, and Zack Gummy Bear Galifianakis will be there too! Candylebrity will make the Candy Corns from Orange is the New Black, Judge Judy and Abby Lee Miller all do the Hot Tamale!

Pop Artist Jason Mecier creates one of a kind outrageous mosaic portraits. He meticulously fabricates anybody out of anything, from Kevin Bacon out of bacon, to Honey Boo Boo out of 25 lbs. of trash. Jason’s artwork has been featured everywhere from Entertainment Weekly to The New York Times, on TV shows like Glee, Rachael Ray and TMZ, as well as music videos by Pink and Pitbull. His portraits are hanging in Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museums, countless celebrity homes, and even in The Playboy Mansion!
