Crayon Canvas Art

Hello friends,

Crayons waste you are confused with , use them to decorate your home with canvas wall art with crayon melting technique

Today I 'm sharing my new found love for mixed media, 
Mixed media,  refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed.

I have tried out mixed media scrapboard here, mediums used are wax crayons melting  acrylic paint and distress ink! 

This picture of ours was clicked for Holi and wanted the background to match the splash effect :)

For the background I started playing around with crayons and hair dryer. 

Supplies You'll Need 

LOTS of Crayons


Hair Dryer Canvas 

Grab your canvas and a color and start!! I suggest starting with a corner, its easier to build upon. If you want a watercolor look, keep it flat.

The next step is the easiest and the harderst. Peel those crayons and get to blow drying. 
I held the crayon with the tweezer to heat action and then heating them up that way. There is definitely a method to doing all of this properly . 

tried one more method and kept the canvas vertical while melting orange crayons. If you want the watercolor smeary look then keep yours flat but if you want the drippy look then this is the way to do it. Also, rotating the canvas every now and then helps keep the drippy things interesting!

love the effect here

 Make your own and let me see them!! 

Next I worked on with a peice Bubble Wrap and white Acrylic paint

stencilled background

Further down on the canvas created background using bubble wrap n distress inks,
this is how the whole background came up with stamping and embellishing!

here found splash looks like a horse running in the sun, what say??

Stamped directly on the canvas n loved its effect !

Finally added a few embellishments here .
