Picture of Easy Art
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

Picture of 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.

I'm wondering if you've ever tried it on pieces of clear laminate and whether the colors shine through like stained glass.

I never even thought about using a clear "canvas" 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.
