As an artist I work in a lot of mediums, actually almost anything can be used to create art. During my search for suburban gold http://www.instructables.com/id/Mining-for-suburban-gold/ I often find crayons which until recently I would just throw out, then I remembered an instructable I had thought was pretty cool http://www.instructables.com/id/Melted-Crayon-Art/
While the one project uses several packs of crayons, I used 2 red, half a pink and only a little of 2 different orange and a white crayon on the one above

Step 1: the test

I've only found a couple of crayons recently but it was enough to try my idea. I dropped a bunch of broken crayons on a piece of cabinet grade plywood scrap and hit them with a heat gun.
<p>I'm wondering if you've ever tried it on pieces of clear laminate and whether the colors shine through like stained glass.</p>
<p>I never even thought about using a clear &quot;canvas&quot; but I doubt it would be very see thru. They do sell stained glass paint that might give a similar appearance but I've never worked with it.</p>
