Step 1: Supplies
These are the things you will need to create your crayon art:
Step 2: Getting Ready to Melt Crayons
To start, you will need to set up your work station with paper towels, because as the crayons melt they may splatter on the table.
Next, plug in the hair dryer, put your canvas where you want it and pick your crayon colors you would like to melt.
Also, the crayons you will melting won't be melted completely, they will still be useable.
Step 3: Melting Crayons
To start melting crayons, turn on your hair dryer and hold the crayon close to the canvas, but not touching it. The hair dryer should be close the the crayon. The tip of the crayon will start to melt. Once the tip has melted a little, draw small blobs with your melted crayon then lift the crayon up a little from the canvas again so it can drip on your canvas. You can also use the hair dryer on the melted crayon spot on the canvas to make it splatter around. Keep repeating that process until the canvas is covered with differnt colors and it's the way you like.
Step 4: Finishing
Once the canvas is completely covered with your melted crayon colors you are done!
It should dry in 10 minutes or less. I hope you enjoy making your awesome DIY Crayon Melting Art!
