Two on Tuesday
I haven't had this much fun with crayons in a LONG TIME! This is something you can even do with your kiddos, they would find it terrific.
Step 1: Choose your canvas, grab your handy dandy glue gun, buy a large box of Crayola crayons (which will be on after school sale soon!), find a piece of cardboard that will sit on the ledge of your canvas, and lastly collect a heat gun or blow dryer.
Step 2: Decide on the color arrangement you are wanting for your crayons and place them in the order you like you best. Next you will, without messing up the order, hot glue each one to the piece of cardboard you found before.
Step 3: Hold your canvas up in a slight tilt to make sure that the crayons will drip down it good. Once your canvas is tilted hold your piece of cardboard so it rests on the ledge of the canvas.
Step 4: Plug your heat gun or blow dryer in and get to work! We found that a heat gun works better cause it gets hotter and doesn't blow as much air out at one time. As the crayons melt, and it takes just a few seconds for the melting to start, you will need to aim the heat gun further up on the crayon.
VOILA!!! You have your very own crayon art masterpiece! How fun and easy was that? If you have any questions at all about what we did or don't quite understand something please ask.
