Photo-Realistic Images Created From Thousands Of Crayons [Pics]

Christian Faur uses handmade colored wax to form amazing artworks.

Artist Christian Faur has created a series of images using just ordinary wax crayons. Each photo-realistic picture includes thousands of stacked colorful crayons that resemble small pixels when viewed up close. His works have included a portrait of his daughter as a child, made in different hues and patterns.

Faur’s creative process involves making the crayons himself, coloring and casting the wax. A pixelated image of the original photo is generated on his computer and printed out, before the crayons are stacked in boxes to create the amazing final product.
