DIY Crayon Art


We can't help but notice the crayon art movement when we browse pinterest.  Wow!  I just had to try one myself.  I wanted it to look like an abstract Sebastian.  But as it turns out, crayons have a mind of their own!  This is my second attempt.  I recommend doing a practice one first and be prepared for it to look nothing like what you had planned.  BOL!

INSTRUCTIONS:

What you'll need - Artist Canvas (the one in this photo is a 16X20), pack of crayons, toothpicks, blow dryer, pencil, black and white paint, small paintbrush.

Melting crayons with a blow dryer turns out to be quite a mess (I learned from my first try) so I covered my table with paper and built a cardboard shield to block all of the flying specks of crayons.


Make sure to chop up a bunch of crayons in 1/4" pieces or less before you start.  A small piece of crayon goes a long way!  I used toothpicks to hold them down to keep my fingers out of the way of the hot blow dryer.



There you have it!  I love how colorful it is.




XOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian

I used an embossing tool to melt the crayons and it went fairly quick. Plus, the air is not as strong as a blow dryer.
