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 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:
- Buy a pack of Crayola crayons.
- Remove the paper labels off each crayon and arrange them in a rainbow.
- Glue all the crayons at the top of a canvas using a hot glue gun.
- Using a hairdryer, heat the crayons so they start to melt. (I recommend tilting the canvas so the wax drips downwards.)
- Let the wax blend together and cool for a few minutes.
This is a simple craft to once again pull out those Crayola crayons and feel like a young kid like before.
