I wanted to try the Pinterest inspired melted crayons onto a framed canvas art!
Fortunately- the canvas turned out fab!
Fortunately the baking tray caught most of it
Unfortunately I'm going to need to get someone in to clean the rest!
Fortunately tomorrow should be more successful - I'm sewing! One stack of blocks to finish and speed date, one UFO to move along, and one quilt that exists in my head but needs cutting and stitching
(Edit: I glued the crayons onto a canvas - the Pinterest ones are usually shown with a hot air blower of some type to melt the crayons, but the oven worked really well (apart from the dribbles). We had the oven on very low (I've got gas: we had it on S which is below gas mark 1) and watched through the window, stopping when we liked what we had. The wax stopped melting almost as soon as we turned the heat off or took the canvas out. We had to help one green bit - it had run into the blue and didn't want to run straight down- a toothpick helped to pull a bit of green down and guide the next dribble! If you look on Pinterest there are lots of variations - some have a piece of plastic or resist over part of the pic so it keeps an area clear. )
