70. Melted crayon art

Hey everyone, today Molly and I made melted crayon art, But, first I should say that today we also started driver’s education. We can get our permits, so stay off the roads. 🙂 Anyways, after 28 more hours of classwork we will be able to cross off finish drivers ed from the list, Yay, and hopefully this week we will cross off get our permits… Just little things to look forward to.

 

Anyhow, last year Molly and I made crayon art, and we enjoyed it so much that we decided to do it again.

So, making melted crayon art is quite simple, possibly the only art I am capable of doing.

Anyways, all you need is

  • Crayons, (crayola work best and get the 96 pack with the built-in sharper, because that’s the best part)
  • A canvas
  • tacky glue
  • a hair dryer
  • newspaper or something to cover the ground with

So, Moll and I decided to be outrageous and not make a rainbow like we did last year but for her to stick with warmer colors and for me to stick with cooler colors

1. Place the crayons in the order you want them on the board until you run out of space

3. after all the crayons are glued, let it dry for a bout 5 minutes, then set up the newspaper or in our case, paper bags, so the crayons don’t splash, plug in the hairdryer and let the magic happen.,
