Melted Crayons


I first saw the idea over on Stelabird Blog. (Went searching on the net and found what I think is the original link here or here.) Obviously what caught my attention were all the pretty colours, and I thought to myself, 'hey I got some old crayons...'

EDIT: Decided to add some steps/tips to this. :]


YOU WILL NEED:
  • Any size canvas (Stiff paper)
  • Crayons!
  • Glue (Hot glue gun)
  • Hair blow dryer

  • I used a much smaller canvas and way less crayons.

    1. Glue your crayons in any order onto your canvas/stiff paper.
    2. Start blow drying! You also might want to lay down some newspaper on the ground if you're doing this indoors like I did.



    TIPS:
> Instead of canvas, you could also use cardboard or any kind of stiff paper.
> You don't need to use hot glue for the crayons, (it's probably better though) I used just a plain glue stick. When the crayons start melting they'll stick themselves to the canvas and each other anyways.
> You want the blow dryer on its hottest setting but maybe on its lowest 'power' setting. If your blow drying is on its highest power setting, when the crayons start melting they'll be splashing everywhere and making more of a mess.

      That one crayon just wouldn't melt!

      This last one is a scanned version.
