Introduction: How to Make Crayola Art

The makings and melting's of Crayola Art !

Step 1: Materials

*Crayola Crayons (depending on how much canvas your using ,tells how many boxes of crayons).
*Panting Canvas (a 16x20 holds only one box of crayons).
*Blow Dryer.
*Newspaper.
*Hot Glue Gun.

Step 2: Lay'n It Down

Line the area where you're going to be doing the project with newspaper. I recommend that if you don't want this on walls, that you tape newspaper on the sides and behind your canvas.

Step 3: Color Coordinate

Lay all your crayons out in the order of your choice (preferably color order) . After you've found the color order you're comfortable with, lay them on the top of the canvas from left to right.

Step 4: Getting Hot

When your crayons are layed out evenly, make sure there are no mistakes in your crayon order. Get your glue gun and start gluing the crayons down (be sure they have no weak spots, and they're nicely glued down.)

Step 5: Back Support

Take the canvas and sit it upward, either up against a wall, box, or table. Just a nice sturdy support stand of any kind.

Step 6: 0The Final Countdown

Plug in your blow dryer and melt the crayons. Do this until your piece looks like you want it to. When you're done, keep it sitting up and let it dry for 10 to 20mins. Then you'll have your brand new self made art piece.

    This looks like a fun use for all of those damn broken crayons that have been accumulating since I was a kid. I'm going to try it!

    Great work! My wife saw it and loved the idea. Now if I can just get my heat gun back from her...
    You get a 100. Congratulations!

    I've heard of makinf faux stained glass windows with this method. Seems to me like the sun would melt them though.
