Wax crayons are not only for young children to play with - just add a hairdryer/heat-gun to the mix and you can create a unique piece of modern art.
1. Protect whole area with newspaper.
2. Paint canvas and leave to dry.
3. Remove paper wrappings (optional).
4. Decide on crayon colour order.
5. Glue the crayons onto the canvas (we are gluing them in a straight line at the top of the canvas, but you can glue them in any number of positions depending on what pattern you are creating).
6. Prop up the canvas - optional (we want the wax to go in one direction and gravity helps the direction in which the melted crayons go).
7. Turn the hairdryer/heat-gun to its hottest setting and direct it onto the lower part (point) of the crayons to melt the wax (make sure the direction the air is blowing is the direction you want the melted crayons to go).
**TOP TIP - For a layered effect, melt the crayons then let the drips cool down and dry for a minute or two then heat up the crayons again, keep doing this until you are happy with the picture - TOP TIP**
8. Leave to dry.
**TOP TIP - Do not hang the picture above a heat source (radiator/fire) or in direct sunlight or it may melt - TOP TIP**
