It was fun to do, but messy. I think using an embossing heat gun would be better than a hair dryer. The hair dryer splattered the melting crayons. I did one with red, pink and purple crayons and masked out a heart with tape.
My own efforts at melted crayon art for our daughter. Board is the normal backing to the picture frame. Painted with white chalk paint. Letter and umbrella blanks cut out of cardboard and the rest is obvious from the pics.
Essentially, you affix crayons to the top of a canvas, and blast them with a hair dryer. Watch as the colors bleed down the canvas, creating a beautiful, colorful mess! I can imagine this being a great project to hang in a child's room. This is very cool!
So cute! --Get favorite picture of you and hubby in the rain (with umbrella) and cut out silhouette on black paper. Pick out different shades of blue crayon to be used as rain. Melt the crayon to look like rain
This crayon art is beautiful! "Heat crayons up with a blow dryer and draw on canvas or other porous surfaces. Layer different shades of the same color for the best effect."- could be cool to make hair using melted crayons
