The video was shared on Instagram reels, where it received over 37.2k views and hundreds of comments and likes. “To celebrate the King’s Coronation, I am working with marmite (a British savoury food spread based) to raise a ‘TOAST’ to the King,” wrote the artist in the caption. The entire process of making the portrait was shown in the video by the artist Nathan Wyburn. First, he prepared the toasts in batches of four. He arranged them to form a foodie canvas. Then, he spread the brown-coloured marmite paste on the toast to make the stunning portrait of King Charles. The method of making it was quite interesting and the end results too looked absolutely realistic and unbelievable!
A number of Instagram users reacted to the video of King Charles’ portrait. “Fascinating,” said one while another wrote, “Amazing!” Several praised the UK artist for his skill and talent. “Just seen this on the news – had to track you down and salute you!”
