Melted crayon art. I've this a couple times now on the Internet and have wanted to give it ago. I found some instructions on the Instructables website.
I used almost 2 full boxes of crayons for this project and a plain white canvas. I first had to unwrap all the crayons and then using a hot glue gun, glue them to the canvas along the top. Once dry I started out with a hair dryer on low setting but it wasn't working right and was splattering, so I got out my heat gun and it worked wonders.
It didn't take long at all for the crayons to start melting and dripping down the canvas. When I had finished melting, the crayons were layered up on each other so the art work has a slightly raised/3D affect to it. It was so much fun to do and has got me inspired to see what else I could achieve with melted crayons.
