I spent one weekend at friend’s place , He had some pending work to get done so I pretty much had the day all to my self , having known this in advance I was prepared !!
I had carried along some “supplies” …so when my friend started his work , I started mine 🙂
I got a candle out and some coloured wax crayons and started to melt the wax crayons over the candle flame , the result was simply amazing , and fun , to see the coloured wax trickle down in strips to the bottom of the candle !! ( I should have done a video )
After covering all around the candle in rainbow stripes of melting crayons , blew the candle out … voilà!
The tricky part was to get the melting colours to trickle down in a continuous line , at times I had to scrap a colour off and start over . By the time I got all the sides of the candle covered , it left quite a bit of wax residue or “wax crumbs” if you call it 🙂
Crushed the wax crumbs a little more and planned on doing something extensive with the left over so called by product !!
Now get the effects in : clipped the ” delicacy ” 🙂 up right and ……
It had 3 fold effect :
1 The paper on the wax crayon acted as a wick ,
2 The wax from the crayon kept the flame going ,
3 Some of the ‘wax crumbs melt down and drip along the cone 😉
Also used the burned out match sticks to border the ice cream cone .!!
This part you really had to be careful , not to burn your hands !! and it was a little trick to get the wax to drip down along the way you wanted it to ,also be careful not to get the wax from the burning crayon to drip off too much . I had some mishaps here and there . Well this was just a 1st attempt may be will give it another try 🙂
Until then ..any one for a Tutti frutti ice cream ??? ..quick before it melts away 🙂
This art work also served as a nice subject for my photography shoot the same day.
I love the crazy experiments, I do them all the time. 🙂
I am right now watching the video clip about Librino on your blog ..interesting stuff 🙂
I’m glad you like it!
🙂 and thanks for stopping by my blog
🙂 glad to know my post inspired you , I still have to travel back home to get my water colour set 🙂
love it, you can make money teaching that 🙂
Thanks .. yeah may be one day ,
I used to teach such ( well not this one with fire :P) ) but other crafts & stuff at a school last year .. you may view it from the menu bar under colors@silvermount …
This is a really fun idea! I recently colored in a drawing with crayon (something I haven’t done in a long time) and realized how nostalgic crayons are for me. They give an interesting waxy finish that gives a different quality to my usual sketches done in watercolor.
I just love the ice cream cone!
Thanks .. I enjoy colouring with wax crayons , in fact I like mixing up mediums … some really blend well , I am yet to try watercolor and crayons though , will give it a try 🙂 ..will you be posting your drawing done in crayons ? …would like to see it .
I will! 🙂 And you inspired me to maybe give it a try once more. I will let you know how it goes.
🙂 ..ok cool ..I’ll let you know how my water color works out too
I have been thinking about this Patch, and I think I will take on a huckleberry for my first crayon sketch that emerges from our conversation. Stay tuned. 🙂
Super !! 🙂 …
Really pretty – the art as well as the photos & how you put the post together. Thank you!
