"But why is the rum gone?" - Jack Sparrow

First of all I want to say that I (sort-of) copied it from [url]http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=388880.0/[url]. Of course mine isn't half as pretty as NightCheads'

Picture that goes as a thumbnail or if you read this then as a beauty shot(It's not very pretty, I know, but I don't have  a better camera):


I glued the crayons down(with PVA, 'cause I don't have any other):


Closer shots of the order of the crayons:




So that was before...(oh and by-theway I used scrap-crayons) And this is after I heated them with my hairdryer:





And here it is with the frame on:

You see the little stripey thingy right on the bottom of the blues? Well that's because the green crayon started rolling around the paper, because he thought that he was the cool one and could do whatever he wanted... Well I got news for ya, green - NOT COOL!!

In other news - The blue one took his time and melted the slowest. The dark blue ones and the lilac ones were in a hurry and melted the fastest(that's why you see so much blue in one end).

Well... Hope you liked it! Smiley

Neato neato frito! I was wondering if I could get away with a hair dryer instead of a heat gun... Thanks for sharing!

I was also wondering how well a blow dryer would work. I'm glad to see that it's so effective Smiley Maybe I will go and buy some canvas and some crayons later today!!!

Hooray! I'm very excited to learn the blow dryer does the trick. I think also it would help to have the paper on the crayons, to keep it a little more tidy. From the looks of yours you used some leftovers, which is also fine by me. It gives it a more explosive look. Smiley I think I'm going to try this project later this week, it's also been on my mind!

Great job!!!

I think it turned out awesome! What kind of crayons? did you use? Yours blended with eachother better than mine did. I think your close-up shots look kind of like an impressionist landscape.

My crayons were scrap so they didn't have their paper on and the ones that had i took off because i didn't want to burn something. And thank you Cheesy
