Crafty: Melted Crayon Art

So apparently if you melt crayons all over a canvas, you get this.

How do you do it?

Step One:

Get crayons. 

Step Two:

Get canvas.

Step Three:

Get hot glue.

Step Four:

Glue crayons to canvas.

Step Five:

Get a hair dryer and crank that baby up!

And that's that. You might want to be careful where you point the dryer though. The melted wax follows the airflow and it tends to splatter. I pointed the dryer downwards most of the time to get the dripping effect. You can do what I did, but there are many ways to do it so make sure not to put yourself into a box!

One last note. 
The wax won't start melting immediately, even with the dryer on a high setting. Don't get discouraged if it takes a minute or two to start dripping! Patience is the key with this one.

Supplies: Crayons, canvas, hot glue, blow dryer.
Time: 30 mins approx.

Have fun! If you make one I'd love to see it!
