new painting ♥

Last Monday on Martin Luther King Day, my mother and I had a craft day together
 I decided to do the melting crayon project but with my own twist

This is how it turned out! I was super pleased, it look about 3 hours and a bit of frustration at first. I had taped the crayons to the canvas like it's shown in the tumblr photos, but the tape stopped sticking way before the crayons were melted, or even warm in most cases. I ended up heavily drawing in the colors on the canvas, and setting them closely to a space heater (once again, hairdryer is not hot enough for the impatient Nora) then I would use the remainder of a crayon to push down the hot wax so it would create the dripping effect. So awesome!
