**12/11/2012 - Thank you all so much for the support! I didn't think i'd get so many views and compliments on this but once again, thank you all!! I will update again if I make any more of these!**
** I didn't take step by step pictures because I was too caught up in working in the project and it was my first time so I wanted to concentrate on making it work.
Items used: dollar store masking tape (this one worked best because it stuck to the canvas when the other ones wouldn't)
- lo temp glue gun
- regular sized crayons (important)
- 18x24 economy canvas from AC MOORE's
-1 colored pencil
-magazine papers (for protection)
This took longer than expected because I had to cut the tape and shape them out. I suppose it would have been easier if I had drawn the chevron stripes first then taped them but I didn't..so it was free handed.
**The crayons don't fit in the glue gun, so I unscrewed the glue gun and took it apart, took the trigger off, and screwed it back on. This allowed for me to use the crayons without the thing that holds the glue sticks in the way. This made it so much easier.
The color pencil was used to push the colors through the glue gun. After this was finished I simply peeled off the tape and got to reveal the ending. The melted crayons definitely give this an awesome 3D effect!
It was some work but I now have an original piece of art work that was done by me ;)
