So if you love Pinterest as much as I do then you probably have seen Crayon Art. I have always wondered how easy it would actually be to make some...well my brother's girlfriend made one and said it was super easy so I decided to give it a try.
Once I went and bought the supplies, well the canvas and crayons, I was ready to go since I already have a hair dryer and hot glue gun with plenty of glue sticks.
First step was to take all the crayons out of the box...
Then I had to line them all up in the colour order I wanted and glue each crayon to the canvas....this probably takes the most amount of time on this project, plus I wanted the Crayola part to show on each one so I had to be careful to make sure I was putting glue on the right side...
Now it was time to add the silhouette of the person, I googled a picture of a person and tried tracing it on, but it didn't work out exactly like the picture so I modified it a bit. I made my person with a good old Sharpie Pen. Then I added a piece of cardboard above the umbrella to make sure the crayons wouldn't drip over it. NOTE: do not do what I did and glue the cardboard on, use some kind of putty that will easily come off...my glue is still on there but you wouldn't know it if I hadn't told you...lol.
Then you are ready to start melting the crayons. I was thinking it would take forever for the hair dryer to start melting them but it was really fast! When I was all finished this is what I got and I really like it!
Have you ever done crayon art? How did it turn out?
Thanks for reading, I appreciate it!
