Who Doesn’t Like Crayola Crayons??

20120423-083118.jpg

You may remember yourself at a young age receiving your first pack of Crayola crayons. I certainly remember myself in this situation and feeling anticipated to open the pack, smell each crayon, and draw with the many colours. I would spend hours sitting and drawings scribbles. Who could blame me?

Crayola Crayons

Crayola crayons are generally the first art tools a child uses for simple drawings and craft activities. However, as a child interested in art gains more experience and skills, crayons seem inferior and worthless compared to Letraset markers, paints, watercolour pencils, etc. Is there a way that young adults can enjoy crayons again?

There may be a way…

by making melted crayon art. This creation is an easy and fun way of making art with crayons again. Here are the steps on how to make one yourself:

  1. Buy a pack of Crayola crayons.
  2. Remove the paper labels off each crayon and arrange them in a rainbow.
  3. Glue all the crayons at the top of a canvas using a hot glue gun.
  4. Using a hairdryer, heat the crayons so they start to melt. (I recommend tilting the canvas so the wax drips downwards.)
  5. Let the wax blend together and cool for a few minutes.
  6. Enjoy!
If you are confused by these instructions, just watch videos on YouTube like this one:

This is a simple craft to once again pull out those Crayola crayons and feel like a young kid like before.
