It may sound trivial but I've always wanted to make a crayon melt poster, and when I was clearing out my room a few days ago I came across my old art set - what d'ya know - full of crayons. I was suddenly in such a rush to make one and blog about it that I sort of completely eradicated the idea of reading some instructions first, sooo I've made this post up but hey, it worked reasonably alright all the same.
I also recently downloaded an app called Capture, where you can edit together videos for your Youtube channel. It is really really really good, and despite my crappy IPad photo quality I thought I'd make one for this tutorial thing. Unfortunately, you can't add a voice over to your Capture video, but you can get a load of royalty free music playing over the top if it so it's not all bad.
If you ignore how awful the whole piece-together of this video is, you can sort of get an idea of how I made my poster.
You will need:
- Glue gun (with glue)
Gather your assorted crayons.
Peel your assorted crayons.
Align your crayons around the border of the card.
Glue the crayons piece by piece onto said card.
Pick up your hairdryer and watch your crayon civilisation melt.
Realise too late that the wax spits everywhere and is very hot when that happens, so hurridly place floor protection down, and move the IPad a bit further away, picking off spitlets of wax from the screen (oops).
And just as my Youtube Capture video states, you have your crayon melt poster!
(I didn't photograph it as a whole before I uploaded Jayze onto my Toshiba, but you can see the finished product in my video.)
Taadaa! You now have a beautiful masterpiece (sigh) to show to your friends and family!
