Day 98. Melted Crayon Bird

Crayons are not exactly the first art medium that comes to mind for most contemporary artist. But luckily, I’m not a contemporary artist. I’m just a guy having fun being creative. And my only rule is no rules. After coloring outside the lines for a while, today’s warm weather gave me an idea. So I did something that would have – without a doubt – got me sent home early from school, when I was a kid. I melted my crayons! Oh the humanity. Oh the smell. Oh the fun.

    I used a tinfoil container and popped it into my oven until melted. Glad you liked it.

    I did an entire melted crayon landscape in my high school art class. I think it was my favorite project in four years of art classes!
