If I had several to melt at the same time, could I stand those upright in the oven or would the smell jack up my oven?

Do not do that! It would totally jack up your oven! Stick with the hairdryer!

I was looking at how much the image had changed from step 4 to step 5...

I was wondering, did you just keep melting the crayons to get the fuller look? Or did you use the paintbrush to help spread the wax?

i kept melting the crayons. The wax is too thick to use a paintbrush and it would jack the paintbrush up.
