Crayon Art

So my boyfriend and I decided to try a craft from pinterest. 

I don't know if you all have seen the melted crayon art on there or not but it is pretty neat. 

He wanted to do the browing heart symbol that I have on the back of my car.  We were going to do "boy" camo on the buck side and "girl" pink camo on the doe side. 

We used old crayons so the colors weren't as pretty but heres how it worked:

melting
you use a hair dryer
drip
finished product
the process is pretty straight forward and simple you pick your crayons lay them out in whatever color pattern you want.  glue them on the canvas and then use your blowdryer to melt them (that's the fun part)

We used a glue stick to glue contact paper on the canvas in our design and then the crayons dripped over it.  The colors looked really good and like camo on the boy side but my colors weren't so great.  Oh well product tried and done.  Not a total failure but not a masterpiece either.
