Hot Wax

A few people have posted about creating melted crayon art lately... and that proved to be just the motivation needed to finally do this with my girls : )

We got ourselves some canvasses from the $2 shop and crayons too.  We stuck ours to the canvas using craft glue.  In retrospect I would have mounted the crayons a little higher possibly or perhaps used a larger canvas to allow more room for the "rivers of wax".

And then we got stuck in with the hairdryer...  it took a while but the hands on approach helped the waiting!

Tada! Two proud girls looking forward to showing Daddy what they made : )

Now on display on their bedroom wall : )

Will have to start thinking about what to make next!
