If you look closely you can see two birds flying through the melted crayon.

im kinda confused at this comment but im guessing you mean the fact i did not melt the actual crayons..? If you meant that, i had purposely left the crayons in the wrapper on purpose, idk why haha.

I've seen this done a lot (it's a project in my school's Intro to Art class) but never with something in the melted crayon like your birds, so I applaud the originality there, it came out really great :)

I love this ^^ Just one question, how did you get the wax not to drip over the silhouettes of the birds? (I've never done this melted wax thing and I want to try it)

I used some sort of sticky paper and just drew my bird shapes on and cut em out! you can probably use any knid of sticker an do the same, the wax should just flow over it :]

NOTICE: I made this for fun, for something to put up on my wall, it is not an original idea, and yes it is overly used, so if you've come here to point out one of these flaws, i've a;ready stated them. thank you.

Don't get it. Sorry. Did someone claim you couldn't make art with crayons or...? Not to say the medium itself is bad (though already quite overused), but the message really doesn't deliver for me. Sorry.

Well i like to do things for fun so i thought i'd try the crayon melting thing. First, sorry for not being 100% original and using a medium that is commoly used, maybe next time i should try... blood?
I put that quote up there so i could have something inspirational on my bedroom wall. MAybe the birds dont want to give up on flying though the rain or maybe its irrelevant and means nothing.
Sometimes i make art just to make art or to have fun, escape life.
Well i hope i satified your curiousities, thank you for commenting.

While I love the piece, I don't think it necessary to state what images may be hidden within. Future reference, let your audience bring it to your attention and then comment about what is or isn't there. Not to say that's what your intention was, but telling the viewer what's there is a little insulting to their capacity of observation. Just a suggestion for your future pieces.

I know, im just a farly plain and blatant person. I mean i never mean to insult anyones intelligence with what i do or don't say, and if they DO get insulted then i don't take it as my problem because i never try to hurt people. but thank you though, and i never mean to come off cross. :]

(that didnt really make sense, sorrylol)

Didn't I say not to apologize!? :shakefist: I get it, it's just that when you present your work in a professional setting for whatever reason, the less you say the better for your work. You didn't come off as cross btw ^w^

What did you do to melt the crayons? I've tried something like this before but...it was messy and I ended up with colorful dots on the kitchen floor. I used a hairdryer.
The birds are amazing.
