Hello my name is Leslie and I AM a Pinterest stalker. There, fine, I said it. It is not an addiction I plan to seek help for. How could I? I get awesome ideas from there. Well I think they are awesome and my husband is pretty tolerant, most of the time. This one he really likes! Duh, it's pretty cool, who wouldn't?
So here's the scoop.... I just happened to have a whole bunch of crayons sitting in a box and some canvases I haven't used (other Pinterest ideas that maybe didn't work out so great). I ordered a heat gun on Amazon! Love it, and of course I assured my husband that it could be used for many other things. Right now I can't remember what they were, but hey we're prepared! Got out ye old blow dryer, Exacto knives and covered my table with the roll of Christmas paper that if I have to look at one more year...you get it.
I used the knives to cut a slit in the paper around the crayons to remove it because I'm not looking to start a fire. Put all the groups of colors together blues, greens, reds, etc. As a side note; it gets a little warm in the area, don't set your crayons to close to your project.
For the moment of truth. I just started melting the colors over the canvas. My original plan was to have a splatter effect but I was having too much fun making puddles, and then making them slide on the canvas! I alternated back and forth between the blow dryer and the heat gun for different results.
One is never enough!
I like it better this direction
I've started a couple of others, but I'm still playing with them. Here is a preview.
I think I see a whale in there!
Have a color filled day!!
