We do Secret Santa since we do so many homemade gifts...this year my daughter's project for her secret santa was so good, I had to share it.  We talked through the project but she did the whole thing herself.  This is for my niece who lives on a farm and has pigs and chickens so she did a drawing with my niece and the animals playing in the rain. She used only blue and green crayons to simulate the rain and taped paper on the umbrella to block the crayon from the umbrella.











I love raising crafty children!

What a truly great project!  I love the rain colors, and the drawings - it will be very appreciated in its new home, I am sure!  You have one crafty kid!

I've seen the Melted Crayon Project done so many times and usually with mediocre-at-best results. This, however, is something wonderful and special and really, really wonderful. Your daughter did a wonderful job.

I love the little drawing- even as fabulous as it is, the melted crayon isn't even the best part in my opinion! This is a great piece of art, which I'm sure will be highly prized! Great job!  This rocks!

That turned out awesome - love how the crayon is dripping off the umbrella.  You're daughter a future Crafster member???  I love her drawings too - they are so cute, and I love the style!

Such talent!  It is a beautiful piece of art.  Congrats to your daughter on a lovely result.  Did she leave the (remains of the) crayons at the top, or remove them after the melt?

Um...no. Smiley

We bought a classroom pack from Michael's...has like 500 crayons in 6 or 7 colors.

Left the Crayons...pretty much the project is as you see it except she painted the edge of the canvas black to finish it off.

Awesome Smiley!  This was a great idea.  I hope the person who got it loves it.  What is the tool used to melt the crayons?  Most of the time I see people using hair dryer.  For a while I've wanted to try crayon art.  Thanks for the push.
