Summary:
If astonishing doesn't sound like a word you'd use to describe crayon art work, it's time to blow the dust off your old Crayolas. Crayons are not just for kids any more. Sculptors use them whole, bundling thousands of crayons to create environmental and installation-size sculptures.

Sculptors use them whole, bundling thousands of crayons to create environmental and installation-size sculptures. Carvers pierce and reshape crayons with scalpels, turning them into mini totems, helixes, and portrait busts. Textile designers take advantage of the medium's 120 shades of wax to create brilliant batik fabrics. Landscape and still-life artists layer those shades in works on paper that rival paintings in their subtlety and depth. The Art of Crayon's author-artist Martha Bloom will guide readers through a gallery of works by contemporary artists who use crayons as a diverse and dynamic medium. And as part of every chapter Bloom introduces her own engaging projects for trying out each of those techniques."@en ;
