Right, we’ve all completely overlooked the true purpose of tin foil.
It turns out it’s not something to wrap your sandwiches in and then chuck away: the people of Japan have discovered that it’s actually art (with a little bit of work, anyway).
Thanks to a Japanese jeweler, seemingly the entirety of Japan is now obsessed with polishing tin foil to perfection. Here’s how.
Step one: Get tin foil. Scrunch it into a ball. So far, so good.
Step two: Use a hammer to push into a tighter ball. Repeatedly. If you think you’re done, you’re probably not.
Step three: Polish painstakingly to perfection.
Step four: Marvel at what you’ve created.
