Melted Crayon Art

One of the hottest (no pun intended) craft trends this year is melted crayon art:  mounting crayons with a hot glue gun to an appropriate surface (canvas, foam core, poster board, etc.)  and melting them with a heat gun or hair dryer to create colorful explosions and waxy textured goodness..  After seeing these works all over Etsy and Instructables, I just had to have a go at it.

My first attempt yielded some interesting results.  I think the canvas I chose may have been a tad small, as the colors would look better with more negative space, but I rather like the texture.  Click the images below for a closer view.
