Crayon Melter Watercolor Resist
Create a colorful frosty scene to hang in your home this winter! White Crayon Melter designs act as a resist when painted over with watercolors.
1 Using the label cutter included with the Crayon Melter, unwrap a white Crayola Crayon. Break crayon into smaller pieces.
2 Load 2-3 crayon pieces into the top of Crayon Melter unit.
3 Plug the Crayon Melter into a power source (adult assistance required). When the red light on the Crayon Melter turns to green, the crayon pieces have melted and the Crayon Melter is ready to use.
4 Hold the Crayon Melter unit upright, and draw "snow-covered" trees on a piece of cardstock.
5 When the color begins to run out, add more crayon pieces to the Crayon Melter and wait approximately 1 minute for the new crayons to melt.
6 When you're finished drawing your trees, use Crayola Watercolors to paint a colorful sky in the background. You can magically paint right over top of your crayon designs, as the wax acts like a resist!
7 Finish your work of art by adding sparkly accents to the trees with Crayola Glitter Glue. Let dry overnight.
8 Place in a frame and display!
