It starts with a serious peanut sorting session, because the peanut has to have a similar shape to the celebrity, of course.
Casino got hooked on painting peanuts when he found a peanut that he thought looked like him, sketched a cartoon of himself on it, and showed it to his friend — who burst into laughter. That's why he keeps the backs of his peanuts exposed.
"I love the happy reaction of people when I show them the back of a peanut and slowly reveal the person painted on the front," Casino says in a video he created. "The surprise at seeing this highly detailed, unexpected caricature almost always makes them laugh. It's like a magic trick."
