Circle Splash

I thought I would do a spin on the usual straight crayon art.  I decided to try some shapes and this one turned out really well I think.
Items needed:

  • crayons
  • newspaper or trash bag
  • hair dryer
  • canvas
  • hot glue and hot glue gun
  1. cover your work surface with your newspaper or trash bag.  Being a circle it shoots off in all directions instead of straight down.  Be prepared to scrape wax off of stuff.. I wore an apron doing this because I have learned my lesson by ruining a pair of jeans with crayon wax.
  2. glue you crayons in the shape you want.  Start by laying them out in the pattern you want and then glue so there are no mistakes
  3. begin heating the crayons with the hair dryer.  You will have to twist the canvas to get all the spots.  This does take patience and practice because if you don't heat them with the canvas tilted back it will splatter everywhere.  Hope you enjoy!
 This was my trash bag after the project... you can also see in the bottom right corner I got some on my table as well.....
this was the before picture :D

Let me know how yours turns out in the comments below... Have fun :D
