The next thing you will want to do is to place a strip of hot glue under the crayon. Then press the crayon firmly back into place. Repeat this with all of the crayons, and then let them dry for 5 minutes.

Step 3: Melt

This is probably the hardest step. Once you've glued the crayons in the shape, put down lots of newspaper, or use a plastic paint pan. Hold the paper at an angle, and point the hair dryer away from the center so it pushes the wax out. Do this the entire way around the shape, and then let it dry. Have fun making your crayon art!
