    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.

    Looks good! The idea to use tape to personalized the design. Nice work!
