So a few months ago, while browsing t'internet, I came across melted wax crayon pictures and jumped immediately on the bandwagon. Following the advice on one site, I bought a couple of boxes of crayons and soaked the crayons in water to get the paper wrappers off. Once that was done, I glued the crayons on to a canvas and blasted them with a hairdryer. I made a mess. An ugly mess. The wax melted into one glob of colour (if it could be called a colour).
I went back to the wise internet and found some other suggestions; keeping the paper wrappers on and using a heat gun. I did those things and came up with this.
And once I'd worked out how to do that, I did this.
And then I thought I'd try something a little bit different, so I chopped up some wax crayons, stuck them randomly to a canvas and melted them with the heat gun, and it ended up looking like this.
I've got a few other unfinished wax crayon projects (unfinished projects? me? never!) dotted around the house, and I will finish them at some point in my life, and if you're lucky I'll show you.
