Heated Crayons 2 Heated Crayons Technique

Thank you to Allison Cope for hosting a month long look at COLORING over at StampNation!  So far Allison has wow’d us with some fun techniques using regular crayons and colored pencils.  The SN members are having a ball playing, creating, experimenting and having fun!

I was inspired to try the Heated Crayons technique.

    Loved this technique, Catherine! I saw it first with Lindsay Weirich when she used her coffee warmer and also a food warmer tray to color with crayons, twistable crayons and watercolor pencils. When each of those mediums are warmed up they flow so smoothly onto paper creating a gorgeous look! Your card is lovely! Thank you for sharing!

    You can also use an electric coffee warmer or a candle warmer under your paper. Huggs

    Catherine, WOW. What a cute technique, I like the way you finished the card. Each of your videos are great teaching tools, I always learn something new, or something I had forgotten about! Thank you so much!!!!

    Catherine when I was little and made clothes for my paper dolls I always colored the paper with crayons and then ironed them with a warm iron to melt the color into the paper which made the clothes beautiful and crisp!

    That looks like so much fun, can’t wait to try it. I love the way the wax can be blended.
