This has been a popular post on tumblr and it definitely sparked my interest to try it out. Melted Crayon Art are all over the internet and they are even sold at Etsy. They’re actually pretty easy to make and really fun. Me and my best friend Kim did this together one afternoon.
Instead of using glue sticks and a glue gun, we used paste. And yes, it was pretty messy and isn’t sticking properly so we suggest using glue sticks for this project.
When you have all your materials ready, gather your crayons and sort them out. (*note: you can group them in all sorts of shapes and patterns. This will definitely have an impact on how your artwork will come out later on. This project happens to be a trial and error though because my crayons were not enough and my canvass was too small. Will definitely do better ones in the future!)
After gluing your crayons into your canvass board, grab your hair blower and blast through them. It may take a while before the crayons start to melt. Take note that they drip all over the place so make sure you cover your spot with scratch papers.
We experimented and tried to move the crayons from one spot to another. Something even a grade school kid can do. I’m not quite satisfied with our work so I guess this calls for another Melted Crayon Art session with Kim.
If I finally happen to whip one that’s really beautiful, it will surely be mounted as a decorative piece in our living room. So what do you guys think? Is this project something you’ll try? Check out this awesome and creative melted crayon artwork I found!
Time for round 2!
