Blue River - melted wax crayon on canvas heat experiment: Youtube video demo by 

Close up photograph of Blue River.

I melted wax crayons with an embossing heat gun and let them run on the canvas.
Building up layers successively.

The final work is not that appealing to me but I am really just experimenting and having fun. I plan on playing more with this technique. The close up photo I took is kind of cool.

See my you tube video Playing with Crayons to watch me creating this.

Art and creative experimentation are my outlets after a long day at the office. Because of my love of trying different mediums you will find a variety of work in my portfolio.

    Thanks, I do like to experiment. I wouldn’t mind taking some classes one day when I have time to learn about how to do things “proper” though.

    Wonderful. Just saw the video and I hope you make exhibitions of your paintings cause it’s very interesting work. Congrats !!

  • Thanks, I need to get back to work on those. Have had dramas with the oils from the wax leaching into the canvas and staining it after time. But, definitely something I want to try.

    Exhibiting . . . maybe one day. Thankyou!!
