Realistically, (as far as can be done with myth anyway) Icarus would have passed out due to lack of oxygen from flying too close to the sun -and therefore further away from the breathable portions of the Earth's atmosphere- instead of the wings melting.
Presumably he could have gone as far as at least the troposphere. Then if he kept ascending it would only be a matter of time particularly if he was flying on a diagonal heading directly toward where the sun appeared to be, as he'd have less far to go until the symptoms of going that high without protection kicked in.
