I love crayon art! Love to watch the colors melt and blend together. So easy and creative.
What you need:
- Blank Canvas
- Crayons (old ones will do)
- Blow Dryer
- Glue Gun
Make sure you have enough colors to fill the top of the canvas. Before glueing the colors to your canvas, arrange them and play with the array of colors until you end up with the right combination of colors.
If you are using old colors, peel the paper a bit (or as much as you like) to expose the crayon (waxy part). Work with one color at a time. Start by placing some hot glue on the back of one crayon and place at one of the top corners. Work all your crayons this way until you fill up the top part of your canvas.
* Optional: If you would like your canvas to have a saying, use removable word stickers to form the words. I used thick masking tape to make out my words. I cut them out with an X-acto knife and glued them on to the canvas.
Next step is to heat the crayons with your blow dryer. Work your dryer gently so you can keep a steady drip going down. You don’t want your colors to all mix up.
Once you achieve the preferred drip, let dry for 5 minutes to make sure your fingertips aren’t part of the artwork. Peel wording stickers off by cautiously peeling them.
