Massive mural made of gumballs

ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) - There were times during the two year project, some thought they had bitten off more than they could chew. But, 42,000 gumballs proved no match for the dedicated art students at South Pointe High School.

Walk into the lobby at the school and you're met with a massive mural of stallions in full gallop. The mural is made up entirely of gumballs.

Art teacher Ashley Beard made a grid from a blown-up picture of the stallions. Each square was coded with a color. Each color was a gumball.

Each student who took part in the project says they're pretty much sick of gumballs, but beaming with pride when they gaze at their hard work.

Just because something seems impossible, doesn't mean it is.
