Melted Crayon Art Project

Melted crayon art seems to be the new fad. It is all over the internet! Thus I decided to try it out and take a different approach by not using glue and by following different shapes and patterns.

It was not easy at first, it took me around 3-4 hours to complete the attached  work. I built layers of the melted crayons on the canvas while holding the crayons down one by one with a wooden stick to keep them from blowing off. At the same time, while melting, I let them drip.

At the end, it was fun, and a great way to recycle old crayons. What do you think of Melted Crayons projects? Is it Art?

For your interest, here are the materials I used:

  • a blank canvas, 12″ x 10″
  • Crayola crayons, old (I used around 30-40 pieces)
  • a wooden stick to hold the crayons down while under the blow dryer
  • blow dryer
