|Melty crayons are melty!|
Ha! Just kidding. See, I wanted to sort out the colors that I didn't want (reds, pinks, oranges....) and just keep the colors that I did (teal, some greens and blues and tan). So 10 boxes got me approximately.... 8 inches across the total 4 feet.
So I bought crayons whenever I saw them on sale in whatever craft store I was in. A few months and several pounds later.... I had enough crayons sorted and ready to go.

With the help of super glue (hot glue gun didn't hold once we started heating), plastic tarp, and a heat gun, I present melty crayon art!
Nathan and I team-peeled the paper off of all of the crayons by slicing the paper lengthwise with a razor and peeling the paper quickly.
We spent a long time lining up the crayons and adding highlights and low lights and shifting things around back and forth and making it just *so*...
We super-glued them all down and blasted them with hot air and let them drip down.
Fabulous success. Now I just need to resist the urge to touch it and pick at it. Good so far!
