crayons

In preparation for taking my art journal supplies on vacation, I recently made crayon cupcakes. I first learned how to make them in Traci Bautista‘s awesome book, Collage Unleashed.

Basically, you just break up crayons…

…melt them in the oven…

…and pop them out of the moulds when they’ve cooled.

I love them for covering large areas quickly, and blending different colours.
