Materials needed:
1. Canvases
2. Box of crayons
3. Blow dryer
4. Elmer's Tacky Glue
5. Old towel or something to spread on the ground






Directions:

Step 1: Pick out the colors you want to use and line them up until you run out of space.

Step 2: Using a glue gun, make a line of glue across the crayons (if you want a certain part showing, like the label, be careful to put the glue on the opposite side). Quickly place onto canvas in a line, as shown below, with tips facing down.

Step 3: Line your floor with newspaper, place the canvas against the wall, and get your blow dryin’ on. I started out on high and warm settings on mine, and alternated with low at certain points. You have to experiment a little to see how your hair dryer works with melting the wax. It sometimes splatters a little, so be sure to cover the floor and surrounding wall, and turn to a lower setting if needed.

Step 4 (optional): After getting all the colors to melt, I went back over certain colors that I wanted to go further down the canvas. As you can see in the photo on the right, I aimed the heat at the middle of the canvas to melt some of the chunks of wax and get them to drip all the way to the bottom of the canvas.
