Artist's Description

I was inspired to do this painting after seeing a You Tube video on making melted crayon art. It is 5 1/2’ in length and 3’ wide. For the background, I salvaged the back of an old mirror that had broken. For the surface, I used primer, acrylic paints in a rainbow pattern, added glitter, and then unwrapped all of the crayons. I put the crayons where I wanted them (staggered them), made the crown pattern with the crayons, and hot glued them on. Tried a blow dryer first to see if that would work, but it made the crayons splatter too much. I ended up using a hot air gun and it worked great. The crayons melted and dripped exactly where I needed them to. Then, I added a coat of polyurethane to make sure it was sealed good. It was quite a fun experience and experiment, and I might use it again sometime for latter projects with mixed media paintings. It is a bit messy and takes a lot of time to unwrap two boxes of crayons, but was a lot of fun.
