Crayon Prints

Crayon Print,

Tis the season for garage sales in Minnesota.  Here's something to add to your list if you run across one at a sale.  I found a hot skillet and couldn't wait for the possibilites.  This is the first project we have done so far.  We made an 'art tent' for shade and I went over the safely of using a hot plate like this.  I wouldn't recommend this for a young audience.  My mini's here are 4 and 6 and both have had a lot of art experience.  Be careful when doing this project.

We took the wrappings off from the crayons.

We did some more open ended and looked at Kandinsky's work a bit.  Here you see Matisse coloring her skillet.  Below is the wax on the skillet.

The next thing you will need is a oven glove and some paper.  I placed the paper on and rubbed it with the glove.  I carefully removed the art and set it aside to cool down.  I would wipe up the suface of the hot plate with a generous amount of paper towel.  WE HAD A BLAST!

Above are a couple more of the finished products.  So much fun!
