Happy Tuesday!! And if you live in my neck of the woods, happy SUNNY Tuesday!! I thought the rain was NEVER going to end!!
We’ve been stuck inside it seems forever. Instead of having a boring afternoon doing nothing but watching t.v. yesterday, Tobin suggested making some melted crayon art; to which I responded, “Why not!!”.
So here’s what we did.
Grabbed up our crayons…
peeled off all the paper, broke them into pieces, and put them in a silicone baking dish.
We organized them by color here unlike the last time we made star crayons. Pile it on a baking sheet and pop’em in the oven.
I did these at 350 and just kept an eye on them. And after a few minutes, they looked like this.
Now here comes the fun part. We dipped q-tips in this melted colored wax (careful!! It’s hot)…
It was so fun! The colors were very bold and it dries with a nice texture.
Of course when I mentioned texture, I was answered with 2 simultaneous, “What’s that??”.
We explored our talents of abstract art.
Obviously, the wax hardens as it cools. I put it all back in the oven for a second to liquify it again.
After all of our creativity was expired for the moment, we were left with these fun star-shaped crayons.
This is a perfect project for either a rainy or sunny day!!
