DIY Idea: Rainbow Melted Crayon Art

Artist and designer Jessica Kerbawy creates these amazing rainbow wall art pieces by gluing a spectrum of crayons on foam core, and then strategically melting them with a heat gun. The paper wrappers are left atop, with the remains of the colored wax dripping down.

Though it may look like something you've seen before, I find these to be pretty clever and unique, and an update on the playing with melted wax and rainbow techniques.

Jessica's prices are actually incredibly reasonable, between $25 and $75 depending on the size. But, it's also something you could try yourself, especially now that it's back-to-school season, and large boxes of crayons will be on sale.

Check them out at JKCreative's Etsy Shop

This reminds me of when my crayons melted in the southern California sun.  I was six and I knew then it was magic!

So cute! I've seen this technique on Etsy and some other places and liked it. Thanks for the tips!

Really colorfull idea! Thank you for showing!!

Where is the instructions or link to instructions? I cannot find it anywhere and I would love to try this!

My three-year-old helped me make one.  Making 4 more and then their toy room in the new house is decorated!!!  Brilliant!  Any more ideas similar to this?!?

As far as any sort of toxic chemicals released.... Just make sure to do this outside, and try not to breathe the air directly around the crayons.  And I agree. We def put a lot more toxins into the air that a lot of people are OK with.  Exhaust for your car, cigarettes, Tephlon cookware, Aerosol.  I for one am not worried about a few melting crayons.

I tried this on my own and it worked out so well!  This is so unique and I have gotten a lot of compliments on it from friends and family.  It doesn't look as great as this one but I really did enjoy making it.  Thanks so much for the awesome idea!!!

This is an interesting idea.

As do factories, pesticides, cigarette smoke, and the car that you probably drive every day...

Burning/ melting crayons releases a toxic chemical in the air.

I seriously have to try this, too cool not to!


so cute <3
