Wax crayons are good not only for drawing, they can be used for various types of creativity. For example, they can apply a stylish image to a T-shirt, so much so that it will not be washed off during washing. Or create a luxurious painting by using a hairdryer instead of a paintbrush to paint.

Drawing on a T-shirt using wax crayons is not very difficult. Even those who cannot draw at all will get an excellent result. First you need to prepare a stencil: for this, download any drawing you like from the Internet, print it on paper, and then cut it out carefully with scissors.

Second way involves the use of not only crayons, but also sandpaper. Draw with crayons the pattern you want, such as colorful feathers or leaves. Cut out pieces of sandpaper with the images and place them on a plain T-shirt (put a piece of cardboard again under the part of the T-shirt where you plan to place the picture).

On the Novate.ru website, we publish a lot of information for creativity and inspiration. If you want to diversify the artistic process, you can make more interesting out of ordinary crayons by melting several pieces of different shades into one. In this case, you can draw with crayons, and as a result, interesting color combinations with slight transitions from one shade to another will remain on the paper.

To do this, you need to sort the crayons according to the main colors, crumble them into small pieces, pour the contents into silicone molds and put them in the oven for a quarter of an hour at a temperature of 110 degrees. You can make crayons to your taste that will combine several similar shades, for example, from sky blue to dark blue. If you only have basic colors in your collection, combine them too, then the result will be more unpredictable, and the color transitions will be bold.

We glue the girl's figurine to the canvas. From above, using a hot glue gun, attach the crayons, placing them along the color spectrum. We “close” the girl from the “rain” with a semicircular lid (it can be a plastic bowl, bowl or even an ordinary lid).

Now the fun begins. We take a hair dryer and warm up the crayons with hot air. They begin to melt, flowing down the canvas, and we will need this resulting rainbow. It remains to wait a little, when the chalk paint dries up, remove the cap from the girl's figure and the picture is ready. After complete drying, it can be hung on the wall, it will become a decoration of any room.
