Step 4: Divide the crayons into the molds

We had a silicon mold and a shaped muffin tin mold and you don't need to worry about greasing up the molds because the crayons will just pop out when cooled. You'll probably want to pay close attention to which crayons you mix together to ensure the colors don’t blend towards a muddy brown. We tried to keep complimenting colors with one another (like pink, orange, and red) so even if it did all blend together, you'd at least have a variety of hues.
That is an awesome idea I'll try it this year
Thanks for the tips - I will definitely have to try them out next time!
I think this is a wonderful idea.. I've never thought that crayons can be re-made like soaps and candles.. <br>This weekend, I'll let my kids make their own new crayons !
Hello Bouncey, <br> Our family loves to make these crayons. We have found that soaking the crayons in cool water will help get all of the paper off. Some Crayons have paper that gets really stuck on. We have also used glitter. The super fine works well but the bigger stuff not so much. You also have to kind of coat the crayons otherwise the glitter ends up in one spot. I dip the crayon in warm water for just a few seconds then roll in glitter. Good luck and Great instructable.
