Hot Crayon Gun
This is such a fun technique with lots of crafting applications. From making signs and banners to fun art, it’s a great way to use up old crayons in an interesting way. Its also an excellent way to make more detailed wax line for batik dying and would be a fun addition to a tie dye project!
Things you’ll need:
Crayons, paper removed
Mini hot glue gun
Fabric, paper, canvas – whatever you want to work on
Things to do:
1. Be sure to work on a covered surface and test the process on scrap paper first until you are familiar with how the wax comes out of your glue gun.
2. Remove any glue from the glue gun by pressing the trigger until it’s removed.
3. Insert a crayon where the glue stick would normally be and gently press the trigger. The way will come out much faster than the glue.
4. Gently depressing the trigger, write, draw or doodle away with your new crayon melter!
