Intro: Repurpose Your Unloved, Broken Crayons
This project is great for reusing old crayons that you might have lying around or forgotten. With just three things you can make a vast amount of doohickeys. This project is great for young kids or if your into sculpting.
Step 1: Materials:
- Silicon Mold (this can be made or bought)
- a Carving knife
- and Crayons
Step 2: Step 1:Unwrapping
Unpeel the wrapper from the crayon.
Step 3: Step 2: Oven
First preheat the oven to 200 degrees (fahrenheit).
When the timer is done add the crayons into the silicon mold.
Then put it inside the oven.
Step 4: Step 3: Chill Out
You should stop the oven heat when the crayons are fully melted.
Then you have to leave it to cool, I just left it inside the oven overnight and in the morning it was cool
Another way to cool the crayons is to put it in the fridge. *CAUTION THE MOLD WILL BE HOT*
Step 5: Step 4: Slicing and Dicing
Take out the crayon brick by "popping" it out of the mold
Then cut the "brick" in half. I did this with a crowbar but, a easier way to do it is to cut it when it is still hot in the inside.
Step 6: Step 5: Carving
The final step is to make the crayon brick into a crayon shape.
This can be done by using a X-Acto or a box cutting knife.
You can carve it in to any shape you want as I only made it to a crayon.
You could make it into a car, plane, pencil, mini house, a hippo, or even a picture of yourself.
The possibilities are endless.
