Day 14: Crayon Art

Standard

It’s Day 14 of the Pinterest Project and I am finally making a crayon art masterpiece! Ever since first seeing these on Pinterest I have wanted to try one. They look like so much fun to make and for the most party, they turn out looking amazing. Fingers crossed that mine does too!

Supplies:

  • Canvas
  • Crayons, an assortment of colors
  • hot glue gun with plenty of glue sticks
  • blow dryer

Directions:

Before you do anything, you need to figure out what you want your crayon art to look like. Next, gather all of your materials (see the list above).

Pick out the colors of your choice and lay them out on your canvas. Glue each crayon down individually. [I painted a picture on the bottom of my canvas so I didn’t just have a canvas full of melted crayons!]

Tilt the canvas for more controlled dripping. Blast the hair dryer onto the crayons until they start melting. Let them bleed as much as you like and then you’re done!

*Note – put down newspaper before you turn on the blow dryer. The crayons will splatter!

My finished Masterpiece – A couple dancing!

Creating this was a lot of fun, but a lot of work at the end. You have to put your hairdryer on a high setting so that crayons will melt. The low setting doesn’t really do anything. If you’re like me and you want to have a picture with your crayon art then be extra careful about the melted crayons and their dripping patterns because they can get a little out of control! Good luck on your own masterpiece 🙂
