Welcome to another little DIY project. I saw lots of these on Pinterest, and there were lots of variations. You can attach the crayons to the canvas to make it ‘drip’, or you can melt the crayon directly on the canvas. I chose to do the latter. Whichever you choose, it always ends up looking like a piece of watercolour art which is amazing!
All you need to do this is crayons, a hairdryer and a canvas.
Here’s a timelapse video of how I made mine.
That’s all you need to do! I’m excited to try do more with other colours. I ended up sticking to colours that reminded me of ‘space’. So blues, purples, blacks, and a bit of red. I do wish I thought this through more and actually put something to protect my desk from the melted crayon bits that went everywhere. They were really hard to clean up. Anyway, here’s my final piece!
It definitely looks like watercolour. I love how it looks, and I really can’t wait to try make more!
