Melly Niko takes art to its limits with a technique rarely if ever used by major artists. She melted an entire makeup range (a full $50,000 in lipstick) into paints. Then uses her paints to create remarkable fine art paintings that are often displayed in galleries and purchased by collectors. She likens her creative technique to ancient Greek mariners who used a combination of wax and resin to waterproof and decorate ships that explored the ancient world.
