Create this beautiful rainbow inspired Melted Crayon Art project. This is such a simple project and takes little time to assemble and carry out the process. This is a great project for school ages children and teens and makes a vibrant and beautiful piece of art.
Since heat is involved, adult supervision is recommended. Normally this project is not a messy one but it is always a good idea to lay down a drop cloth or newspaper as dripping wax could get messy. If you angle your canvas, this should not be a problem, however.
- Box of 64 Crayons and some extra crayon color favorites
- A canvas
- A Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- A Hairdryer
How to Make It
- Sort a box of 64 crayons by color, keeping the rainbow hues and setting aside the blacks and the browns.
- Use your glue gun to glue each crayon to the canvas top with the points facing downward. We arranged them in rainbow order. Different shades of a color group only add to the beauty of this project. The crayons should be lined up in one long strip across the top of your canvas.
- Turn your hairdryer to a high heat setting and blow the hot air at the crayons. Within a few minutes, the crayon wax will start to get shiny and they will start to melt and drip down the canvas.
