Pick a theme of color you'd like to use. For instance, I want red so I will pick a variation of 10 red/orange crayons and cut them each in half.

Place and arrange crayons on your canvas to your liking, then glue them down. Work quickly, as the glue does harden fast!

Turn your hair dryer on high heat and blast away! Once the wax of the crayon melts, you need to pick the canvas up and start shaping the design you want by moving the canvas around.
