This is the finished product from my second painting with melted crayons, this time I experimented with the sculptural element allowed with this medium that wouldn’t be possible with just paint. I will show you the difference between the 2D and 3D paintings so that you can see the difference. I also give you some tips and tricks to help make your project go more efficiently. Please share your works of art via video replies, comments or links to your work, I would love to check them out.

I’m doing another painting with melted crayons, but this time I’m playing with the sculptural element. It it taking me a bit longer than anticipated and my mom pulled me outside to help do some yard work, so you will all be able to see the final product in next week’s video.
How To Paint With Melted Crayons (instructions, materials needed, etc)
Sculptural Painting With Melted Crayons – Finished Work:
There are several different ways to “paint” with crayons by melting them with a) hairdryer (common); b) glue gun (interesting); or c) boiling water in pot with paint palette & brushes (outside the box). I figured out the last one myself after a bit of experimenting. So here you get to see some of the things you’ll need to do a similar project. I painted a replica of a sunset of Na Pali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii that I found on Pinterest (under my art board).
Please feel free to leave any comments, requests or share your own experiences using melted crayons as a medium, I would love to hear from you.

We’re doing lots of home renovations these past few weeks, so you get to tag along as we reintroduce beauty and functionality into our front yard with a flagstone path around a beautiful fountain with a wall of emerald cedar shrubs to give us some privacy. More videos to come as we finish the yard and add a second crescent driveway.
Go to your local compost center, usually the mulch and wood chips are free.
You can get lots of newspaper if you save your weekly flyers or ask local stores if you can have the sale flyers from the previous week that have expired.
