Technique Thursday: Melted Crayon Technique

This week on Paper Crafter’s Library’s Technique Thursday we are featuring some awesomely fun techniques using crayons….yep, the everyday Crayola crayons. A supply that anyone with children likely has in abundance!

Soph has created some fantastic projects using three different variations of a Melted Crayon Technique.  On the tag on the top which says “You Color My World” Sophia actually stuck crayon pieces to the tag and then melted them to create those gorgeous color drips.  On the “Surprise” Tag, the blue and purple colors you see running out of the bucket are melted crayon.  Finally, on the “Find joy every day” tag, the crayon was melted to create the effect of dirt underneath the plants.   

For those of you unfamiliar with Technique Thursday , this is where we create and feature projects for our Club 52 online class (our year-long technique club), which our Paper Crafter’s Library members also access as a free benefit of their membership. 

If you’re interested in checking out what we’ve covered so far, you can look at our Club 52 page. If you’re a technique junkie and would like to learn new techniques (as many of them are ones we have created), or revisit old ones – you can still sign up from this page – you’ll be able to access all 32 weeks we’ve done so far, plus the remaining weeks, and your access to the classroom will last for 15 months.

Every Monday we create an exclusive project with a video tutorial for all of our newsletter subscribers and Paper Crafter’s Library members. So make sure that you sign up now, so that you don’t miss out!

  1. Melted crayons – how fun! Most of us have some broken bits hanging around, and for those who don’t, your neighbours with kids would be more than happy to share – I know this from experience: Please, take some!!

  2. I love this technique. It adds such a nice texture to the items. Will have to try it!
