7  Crayon art - Puddles with dad in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bld on: December 17, 2011 01:42:21 PM
Hey so I tried another crayon art piece.  For this one I used the hair dryer technique and the glue gun technique.

Tutorial and inspirition from http://lightandspoon.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/i-feel-melty/

I found some images I liked online - edited and siloutted them.
 I used a pair of scissors to hold a turquoise crayon on the canvas and used my hair dryer to melt it and ta-da - puddle with splash.
Then I did the silhouttes by  tracing from my computer to freezer paper (my printer is broken)  I covered that in blue tape and cut out the image.  Then used the outside as a stencil and painted.

I kind of like it with just this splash of color

 Then I used the blue tape that had covered the image to cover it on the canvas as I melted the crayons through the glue gun.

The glue gun is a messy process

I regret deciding to do this in my very small and crowded room.  But it made some cool designs for my sewing machine

and luckily my sewing machine doesn't get hot enough to melt the crayon onto any fabric.

Only big issue about this besides the mess in the room (and on me, I don't know how but somehow I got crayon all over my face and in my mouth) is that the wax I dripped down doesn't all stick to the canvas - so when little hands go to feel it some of the drops fall off - maybe a gloss on top or an iron to the back to help melt it to the canvas?

Also this is the original of this image - I love it and am going to freaking claim it as mine so that my family doesn't claim i stole it from others

8  Angry birds game in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by bld on: December 17, 2011 12:41:05 PM
Here is an angry birds game I made.

The pigs are school milk/juice cartons with paper cut out and then packaging tape over it (this is a game we are going to play outside)

and the red angry bird is a soft ball covered in red fabric and painted with acrylic.

9  cardboard and fabric ornaments in Winter Holidays by bld on: December 04, 2011 05:38:17 PM

I followed poppytalk's tutorial for an easter egg buntng found here


I only made 5 since I wasn't sure how'd they would turn out
The other 2 are

for my neice and nephew.
On the back of them is an update for the year.
As in Elliot's says: Christmas 2011.  Elliot is Mr.Smiley.  He is starting to stand on his own, and absolutely loves his sister Addie. 

Its a cute idea and fairly simple, I'm not sure if it is something my aunt would like for her tree though.

10  totoro crayon art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bld on: November 26, 2011 10:59:10 PM
My attempt at crayon art with a totoro picture.   I think I made totoro's pupils too big.  Also melted wax is painful

I may melt it down a bit again.
