Crayon Abstract Art

For Christmas I made my dad a piece of abstract art from melted crayons.  It was awesomely fun to make; a great combination of random lack of control, and color manipulation.  My very favorite arts and crafts are ones that test my flexibility and willingness to go with the flow.

I made my abstract art by painting a canvas with acrylic paint, taping crayons to the top (point down), and heating them to dripping with a heat gun (according to many examples on pinterest a hair dryer will also work!)
