melted crayon art

Recently for my friend Grace's 13th birthday, me and my mom made her this awesome melted crayon thingy that my mom found on craftgawker.
it turned out really awesome.

what you need to make one:
-a canvas, whatever size you want, preferably a flat canvas, so it doesn't sag.
-a bunch of crayons. as you can see, I made a rainbow, but you can do whatever you want.
-a hot glue gun.
-a blow dryer.

first, figure out what order you want the crayons to be in.

next, glue them along the edge of the canvas.

then use your blow dryer to start melting them down the canvas.

when it's finished, give yourself a pat on the back.
you are now artistic!

have fun and enjoy your melted crayon art!

this is undeniably cute.
i'm currently a fine arts student & an artist myself *not to pat myself on the back* ^^.
& i remember, way back when i was a kid, i would melt my crayons on rocks.
my mom didn't like it & she thought i was just wasting it--but to me, it was art then.. ^^

thanks for reminding me this :]
m'gonna try it on one of my artworks at school~ ^_____^

I used to do that too! and I would get the wax in my fingers and let it dry. Have fun!
