that too, but the sun will also burn up the paper.

DoodleJoe Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Umm..no. The heat from the sun can't burn paper unless there was a magnifying glass. The whole premise with Icarus was that his wings were made from wax therefore melted from the heat when he got too close.
