crayon in process
crayon alter

Can an icon be an abstraction? Can the movement of the color drops tell a story, or do they only act as random M & M style bursts of color?

This was a fun process. I held each pristine crayon tip in the candle flame, let is get to melting point, them touched the crayon to the gold-leaf 3×5. Stopping point for each crayon was the paper wrapping.

Then on to build the mini crayon altar… and let the 3×5 dry. It is a bit brittle, so will probably have to hang in a clear envelope for protection.
