I have pinned at least 6 different types of these melted crayon projects on Pinterest. I decided to try out make one in real life today. Then I thought I would go ahead and make it into a tutorial! I mean I was making it already and I had my iPhone!
|Start with at least 20 crayons. The colors are up to you.|
I of course chose to do rainbow colors!
|Strip the crayons of their paper. Some are easier than others.|
|Here is one of the easy ones!|
|I tried putting the crayons on my canvas, but I realized I|
wouldn't have much room for the melting run-off.
My canvas is a 12"x12" from Hobby Lobby.
|I cut each crayon to 2.5 inches!|
|Here are all the discarded wrappers. |
Anybody have any ideas about using this paper.
|I used a flashlight as a guide for the circle in the middle|
|In the end it they still ended up glued |
to the canvas. Now to add heat!
|Careful with the melting. I got the crayons melting before |
tilting it up. I also kept the hairdryer on the low setting.
|I also worked on small sections and then |
I would turn the canvas so I wouldn't
keep melting the other crayons
|How much you allow the crayons to run is entirely up to you.|
I like my canvas drenched in color (surprise, surprise).
|Here is the finished product.I feel the need to say TAHDAH!!!|
It makes me smile when I look at it.
|Here is my heating tool. Just a simple cheap hairdryer |
with a Hi and Low setting and a cold button!
So there you go. If I left anything out...ask me what I did. I might remember....heehee!
To the moon and back my friends,
