Then this weekend my sister-in-law told me that my brother-in-law had done the project with their daughter using a heat gun. So this morning before heading out to work, my hubby dug his out of the garage for me. Success at last!
I bought a $2 canvas from Dollarama and had an unopened box of 64 crayons in my desk (approx. $5) that I used. It didn't even use half of the crayons, although I did have to pull a couple of extra yellows from a small box of crayons, as there weren't enough in the 64 box. Once I had the colours arranged to my liking, I glue-gunned them on and then used the heat gun to melt the wax. Easy Peasy!
Make sure to use a drop cloth or old sheet when melting the wax, as some will pool at the bottom of the canvas and splatter around the sides.
