julietalpha I didnt know about the 50% synthetic limitation and I did it on 100% cotton pillow case, my camera is totally flat at the moment and its late but I will post a pic tomorrow to show you how it came out, it is faintish, but I reckon if you pressed really hard with the crayons you would get a reasonable transfer, come to think of it I used cheap crayons so perhaps if you used better crayons with better pigments you might get a better result.

Havent a clue about the oil pastels, it would be worth a try but I wonder if the oil medium that suspends the pigment in the pastels would be properly removed by this method, if it wasnt it might be sticky. But if you do try it let me know how you get on.

Thanks for posting a picture Edel.  It looks great!  Sounds like your recipe is okay for cotton stuff too.  I'll definitely have to try now!

I made my daughter a nightshirt with the crayon transfer method described by edel, and even after a trip through the washer and dryer, it turned out OK! 



It says "Diva In Training" and the thing in the top corner is a crown.
The shirt is a cotton blend, but I'm not sure the percentages.

cool it turned out well, but your daughter looks fabulous, too cute

the only limitation with this technique is that the colours are not very intense but its good for pastely effects,

Yeah, I used bright pinks and purples, and it ended up pastel looking.  I wonder what those neon crayons end up like.  Hmmm...

this is a really great idea! I'm planning on being an art teacher in a few years, and this would be a great project (not letting little kids use the iron obviously haha)

Hey everyone. I know this is an old-ish thread, but I am trying out the crayon theory (as I'm typing this..I took a break to search for tips haha), and the one thing I've learned (the hard way unfortunately) is that if you want your image to have a nice solid outline, make sure you color everything in BEFORE you outline (I'm doing my outline with black). Luckily, I caught my oops before I got to the smaller details, but I am having to do some major recon to make sure I don't smear the black in with the yellow and orange. Just in case you all were wondering, I'm attempting to do a PotterPuff Ron, wearing a crown. I free hand drew the puff on a piece of paper and then I plan on ironing it on. Then I bought a black fabric marker (which seems a little weak if you ask me, but I will try it) to pen in the words "Weasley is MY king!" Hopefully it turns out okay and I'm sure if it does, I will be posting pictures of it all over the place. I love me some Ron!  Tongue

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!
