Melting Crayons


Well this one was fun—though the photo is awful! I spent an hour or so with an iron in my lap (facing upward), the canvas on top, drawing/painting with the crayons in my hand that melted from the heat of the iron. The result was this slightly crazy piece... that kind of looks like a elementary student did it. Haha, oh well, it was fun to be a kid again for a while :)

Cool! Maybe you could lay the canvas on a hot electric griddle instead of an iron in your lap?

I draw on the canvas than stick it in the oven tell I saw the wax melt than take the canvas back out and do it again. The oven was on broil and I also used some paint brushes.

Next time instead of an iron, use an old electric pancake griddle. You know, the flat ones you plug in. Put paper on top. We use them in art at school.

hello. My name is Lorelei Barnes and I am taking an online computer class, whew! I am soo computer illiterate, lol. Anyway, I am a 52 yr old preschool teacher and I am having to make a webquest for my homework assignment. My subject is crayon art. Is it ok if I use this image of the tree painting to add to my webquest? I would appreciate it very much. Please let me know. Thanks.

Hello Lorelei!
Yes, you may use this image for your homework assignment—thank you for asking (so few people do that nowadays!).
All I ask is that you give me proper credit! Thank you
