Crayon Art

I originally saw this awesome crayon melting art idea on pinterest, and like a ton of other people, couldn’t resist the urge to make my own.

I found great instructions for it here.

All I needed was:

  • a canvas
  • a couple of boxes of crayons
  • hot glue gun
  • hair dryer
  • a couple of hours

I laid out all the crayons in rainbow order and then started gluing them to the canvas with a hot glue gun. Caution: I sustained minor burns to five of my fingers during this phase of the project. Ouch.

Once everything is glued on, I leaned the canvas up and turned the hair dryer to it’s hottest setting. My hair dryer was pretty powerful so it blew a lot of the wax in different directions as it melted, which blended the colors a little more than some of the other crayon art projects I’ve seen. It also sprayed some colorful dots of wax all over the patio. I probably should have put some newspaper down first.

Final Product:

It was fun. I’ll probably do it again.
