You are watching: Wicked witch of the west melting

Odds are you’re familiar with the Wicked Witch of the West’s death scene from The Wizard of Oz. It’s one of the most iconic moments from the 1939 film, and if you haven’t ever quoted the line, “I’m melting… melting!” please do so now for the sake of all that’s good and proper in the universe. Or wait until after you’ve watched this incredibly well-crafted crayon WW of the W have her face melted off like a front-row attendee of a Foo Fighters concert.

Although it’s unclear how long it took Richter to sculpt this crayon version of the infamous gnarly, green character, we’ll guess not too long. Not because any details of the witch are sketchy—far from it—but because Richter probably has this all down to a science. Just check out the images on his Instagram. By the way, apparently this isn’t the first time he’s melted some of his expert-level work.
