Who doesn't like crayon art?! It's fun, bright and always one of a kind! I've been seeing a ton of them on pinterest lately and decided to try my hand at making my own one-of-a-kind piece. After my mind was made up, I gathered a canvas, two packs of crayons, my hot glue gun and blowdryer to start on my endeavor! I decided that I wanted a picture of the sea with the sun shining over it. And so it began...

The first step was easy: using the hot glue gun to glue the crayons to the canvas. Being that I was making a sea, I used a lot of different shades of blue. Then out came the blow dryer. I used a box so that the wax didn't fly everywhere (and it did fly everywhere in the box :))Onto the sun! Using yellows, I hot glued the crayons on the top corner of the canvas and using the blowdryer, melted them. I didn't melt them as much as the blue because I didn't want their colors to run into each other.I let it dry laying flat and then up on the wall it went. It actually went on my boyfriends wall - he is nice and lets me display my projects at his apartment.

Being that this was my first try, it wasn't perfect, but I definitely learned a bit about melting crayons! I would like to try it again with a different design and maybe more COLORS!! :)
I love that this is on C's wall! hehehehe... Awesome. <3ReplyDelete
I was kind of surprised that he kept it there - I hung it up and when he saw it, he just kinda shrugged. haha! Maybe he has just been too lazy to take it down :)ReplyDelete
I LOVE THIS! I have been dying to try crayon art. Thanks for breaking it down into simple steps :0)ReplyDelete
