    love this - and much better than other crayon projects... use a hot glue gun instead of gluing crayons on the canvas - then you don't have crayons stuck on top of your picture forever!!

    awesome idea for crayon melt art. we should take a picture like this then make silhouettes out of it, so its us on there, not just some people.

    I've seen melted crayon art before, but love the umbrella silhouette on this one. And they used a hot glue gun to melt the crayons.

Paint an eye onto the canvas and then glue small pieces of crayon underneath it. Melt the crayons with a hair dryer and you'll get an effect like this!

The crayons are lined up along the edge and melted on a foam board using a heat gun. Specific heat is applied for the desired outcome of several defined drips. There is direct dripping from the crayon pieces that extends through the lower third of the board, with some drips extending all the way to the bottom. Wrappers are left on this piece to emphasized the melting of the crayons.
