This is such a fun technique with lots of crafting applications. From making signs and banners to fun art, it’s a great way to use up old crayons in an interesting way. You can also add glitter to the molten crayon. One can make beautiful arts using this gun.
Step 1: Things You’ll Need
- Crayons, paper removed
- Mini hot glue gun
- Fabric, paper, canvas or whatever you want to work on.
- Glitter (optional, you can add it to make your art more sparkling)
Step 2: Things to Do
1.Be sure to work on a covered surface and test the process on scrap paper first until you are familiar with how the wax comes out of your glue gun.
2.Remove any glue from the glue gun by pressing the trigger until it’s removed.
3.Insert a crayon where the glue stick would normally be and gently press the trigger. The way will come out much faster than the glue.
4.Gently depressing the trigger, write, draw or doodle away with your new crayon melter!
5.If you want your art to be more sparkling, add glitter just before the crayon dries.
Step 3: Cleaning the Gun
After using the gun try pushing a glue stick through it afterwards and that should clean the gun. Your first glue stick through will probably have a little bit of color residue on it though. If you are uncomfortable using a newer gun, we suggest using an old, retired glue gun just for this purpose or an inexpensive glue gun will work just as well!
