You will need enough to cover the whole top of the canvas. You can line them up however you would like: rainbow, alternating colors, lightest to darkest, etc.

  • Step 2: Hot glue each crayon to the top of your canvas in order
Some people take the paper off and some people leave it on. (It will work either way) if you desire, you may also break the crayons in half so that it will not take up as much space (better for small canvas')

  • Step 3: Slant your canvas so that the wax will drip down
Most people choose to lean their canvas against a wall. Be sure to tape the newspaper to the wall and lay it on the floor to avoid accidents.

  • You can also try creative shapes like this heart. You will have to blow dry one side at a time and then let it dry. Then turn the canvas for the other side in order for it to drip the correct way.

  • In this example, the crayon paper was removed before hot gluing, and they left the crayons on the canvas. They created a barrier in order to leave space for writing.
