Thank you everyone for the compliments!  I gave it to my mom the day before yesterday and she loved it!  She took it to her school and all the teachers like it too  Smiley

I used a hot glue gun to attach the crayons.  I was afraid the heat gun would melt the glue, but it didn't affect it at all. 

I don't think that putting it outside in extreme heat will work, just because the crayons won't reach a high enough temperature to drip.  A blow dryer on the hottest setting should work though.  I also saw online where a lady put hers in the oven propped up at an angle.  This caused the crayons to melt and drip, but the drips were more solid lines from each crayon and didn't run together for the rainbow effect.  It looked different than this one, but still really neat.

If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to create a tutorial for this, just let me know!

I think super glue would work really well, especially with the paper on the crayons.

Also, it's best to stack your crayons on the canvas before you start gluing. That way you can make sure you have enough crayons (I found this out the hard way).

Really cool, I saw this idea on reddit a while back, they set theirs out in the sun to melt them down though.

Wow how awesome! I was looking at it and wondering if I could do it just by leaving it outside. Smiley I live in Texas and we've been have 100+ temperatures for the past 2 months almost.

Well.. crayons can and do melt in cars.. maybe you could.  Grin

I actually saw this on youtube today & thought about you guys!!!  She did this in her car.  She didn't say how hot it got but it took about an hour from her comments.
