Here are the supplies you'll need:
- Hot glue gun & glue
- Crayola Crayons (you'll see why in a little bit)
- Hair Dryer
- Towel/Paper towls
The reason why I am specifing crayola crayons is because I used a cheap off brand from a local grocery store and they didn't really melt so well. I have seen other people use the Crayola Crayons and they seem to melt better. PLUS, the off brand do not have the color names on them. I originally wanted to do a R.O.Y.G.B.I.V. pattern, but since I couldnt see the color names I didn't know which ones were red and which ones were orange and I didn't have the time (or patience) to test out every color on a piece of paper.
Once you decide on what colors you want to use, line them up on the canvas to make sure you know length wise how many will fit on your canvas.
Once they are all glued on find a way to prop your canvas up, I used a heavy box. Lay a towel or paper towels under your canvas just in case some melted crayons come off the canvas.
Here are some pictures taken in the process of the melting. Make sure as you are blow drying that you are moving the hair dryer back and forth and not just leaving it on a few crayons so they melt, this will also make it uneven. Just move your hair dryer back and forth and they'll all melt at a even pace!
This one is DEFINITELY a pin!
