Encastic art - Melted Crayon technique

I had fun trying this technique . Below is the video I used.

The technique involves melting crayons on a craft iron ( no holes please) and swiping them on paper. Great way to use up bits and pieces of broken crayons.

 Here is the first background I did. I was so proud of this first try. I used photo paper.
Below is my second try....

It is smoother.  Same colors as the first. Then I have a picture of the card I did with the second background. It was really difficult to stamp on it.
Finally I tried an ocean scene.

 The boat is from Stampin Up


  1. you make me wish I had a craft iron!

  2. Very unusual technique Faye. You have done a fantastic job.. I would definately have burnt a hole..LOL..Loz
