Dripping Crayons Adds a Splash of Color

I've been wanting to try dripping crayons on a canvas for quite a while now, and lately, I've had so much creative energy!  With this holiday boutique coming up, it's been the impetus for me to get cracking and try some art projects that have been marinating in my brain.

I hunted down these crayons and tried to arrange them in a color order, though I'm not sure if it really matters. I used hot glue to attach them to the canvas and went to town with my heat gun. God I love that thing.  Gets red hot in seconds and dries and heats anything in its path immediately.  The wax had a mind of its own when it was dripping, but I managed to get it around the edge of the canvas so that every angle had something interesting on it.   I enjoyed making this canvas so much, I'm excited to try it again with a new set of crayons.
