Most of us have probably had at least a little experience drawing with crayons. Some of us can even clearly recall the way crayons smell without being anywhere near one. But have you ever turned a crayon into a piece of art?

Artist Pete Goldlust carefully carves wax crayons, transforming the humble art supplies into intricate works of art. The fragile patterns are strangely mesmerizing. We want to handle the crayons as much as we’re afraid to touch them.  

These beautiful Carved Crayons remind us of the amazing work by of Dalton Ghetti (previously posted here), who turns pencils into tiny masterpieces.
