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.
1. The original design on the T-shirt
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.
Now prepare the crayons: grate several pieces of different colors on a fine grater, mix the crumbs until smooth.
Attach the T-shirt that you want to decorate with clothespins to the cardboard, smooth the fabric so that there are no creases. Attach the stencil to the chosen place, cover the cut out core with colored powder.
The next step is to cover the image on top with parchment and iron it gently with a hot iron. The drawing is ready, it remains to carefully remove the parchment and remove the stencil.
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).
Now flip the sandpaper over the pattern to the fabric, cover with parchment and iron on top with an iron. The crayon pattern is copied onto the fabric and looks great.
2. How to make crayons with color transitions
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.
When the crayons have cooled, they will be hard again and can be drawn or painted.
3. How to draw a rainbow painting
To paint a romantic rainbow picture, you need a whole set of crayons, but the result will surpass all expectations. Which character is under the umbrella is up to you. You can draw it or find a ready-made drawing on the Internet. All that remains is to cut and paint with black paint. In our example, this is a girl with a puppy.
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.
By the way, all over the world hundreds of thousands of tons of used crayons are constantly sent to landfills. An ordinary American decided to take advantage of this fact. Now the father of the family cooks a very strange dish in the kitchen every day to make the world a little better.
