You have seen them all over Pinterest, Melted Crayon Art. Since it is back to school time, crayons are on sale everywhere in town. So this made for an inexspencive project.
Then the fun part begins!!! I took my heat gun and held it about 2inches away from the bottom part of the crayons. They started to melt, and you would have thought I had never seen anything melt before. It was so fun to watch the colors melt and blend.
I took off the cardboard and drew out my silhouette with a pencil. I just googled silhouettes and traced her out. I used a sharpie to fill in the drawing. Now that I look at her again, her legs are a bit wonky.
My daughter-in-law wanted to make a crayon canvas, so she joined me in the craft room. She chose an oval canvas. Isn't it cool? What a great idea. She drew a heart in the middle and glued her crayons around the outside of the heart.
Matthew saw how fun it was to melt crayons and decided to help out. It helps to have someone hold the canvas as you heat the crayons. They can steer the dripage.
Matthew decided to join in on the fun and make his own canvas. Yes, I have a large supply of canvases in my closet. I buy them in bulk for about 2.50 a piece. He went with the blow the crayon wax across the canvas technique.
Then Sarah and her boyfriend came over. Before Brian knew what hit him, Sarah had him helping her make a canvas. They made a rainbow across the canvas.
So here are the finished canvases.
Now go out and buy up all those
25 cent crayons and make some ART!
Have a blessed day.
