Reader, Pavitra Chakravarty, sent me this amazing photo of artwork created by her 4 year old, using the technique of melted crayons to create batik fabric! Seriously. Is this not amazingly awesome?
That is one talented child! Pavitra used my tutorial for Batik Fabric with Crayons for this project. And the result was artwork that she and her child can cherish forever!
This particular project definitely needs adult supervision as the process of melting the crayons involves a double boiler made from a deep dish flat griddle and a muffin tin. But imagine the possibilities! All you would need is a coloring book for a nice selection of patterns and a ton of potential for colorful fun. Guaranteed to keep the kids busy for hours.
Keeping the crayons melted on the double boiler, it is easy to paint up a project with colored wax on fabric.
And come up with something bright, colorful and full of life! You can find the full tutorial here: Making Batik Fabric with Crayons
I’ve used this technique on other projects too. Here is an example of my Majestic Peacock Pattern in melted crayons on fabric.
This peacock pattern can be found in my eBook- Majestic Peacock Pattern and Instructions.
