Crayon Art

You’ll Need 
  1. LOTS of Crayons ( theres is one of each shade in a box, you can go through at lest 3-5 crayons of one shade on a single crayon painting)
  2. Hair Dryer
  3. Heat Gun {Optional}
  4. Canvas
  5. Exacto Knife or a sharp kitchen knife
  6. Paper Plate or piece of cardboard
Separate the colors {Red, Green, Blues, etc.} It keeps things organized, and its much easier way to pick the right color tones.  Then shell the colors you want. Use an exacto knife and make an incision in the paper jacket. If you don’t have an exacto knife use a small sharp knife. Grab your canvas and a color and start!! Starting with a corner, its easier to build upon. If you want a watercolor look, start with a dark shade like navy blue and layer with a lighter shade of the same color. If you want a dramatic shade contrast add a little white at the end. Tips and Tricks for Heating and Blowing  You pretty much always want your heat level to be on hot, but high and medium speeds melt the wax in different ways. Medium speed is slightly more controlled and will allow you to thicken up a color by layering. High speed will give you a spray effect and is good to achieve the watercolor effect.  If you want to use a heat gun put it on low and about 75O degrees.
