DAYBOOK with melted Paper Crafter Crayons™


Hi everyone, Mieko here today to share a melted wax technique using Paper Crafter Crayons™. Paper Crafter Crayons™ are highly-pigmented wax crayons that can be used on all types of crafting surfaces. I created a cover of DAYBOOK.

First, to create the cover of the book, I used Paper Crafter Crayons™ and Gelatos®.


I cut crayons with a GRIP® Trio Sharpener.


I found that heating from the back a bit was able to prevent the splashing. After that, I heated up from the surface and spread crayons over the paper with Palette Knife.




I cut crayons with a knife and heated it up.



I rubbed Gelatos® in with my finger using stencil..


I applied Gelatos® to the edges of paper and blended using my fingers.


I created cool splatter effects with the Stipple Brush by loading the brush with Gesso and flicked the brush to get speckles..


I traced “HELLO” with Essential PITT Arties Pen and applied Gelatos® white.


I hope you enjoy my creation.

    Dear Jen, Our son is an astrophysicist. I will absolutely love making something like this for him. I am not nearly as talented as you are, so there will be a few (many) changes, but I know it will make him smile. Thank you. Dee

  • Tricia Ann on Be Strong Tag Using Texture Gems - With Lisa

    Lisa, your tag is awesome! I love, love, love the beautiful colors and textures you chose, as well as the way you put them together. I opened an email today from Faber-Castell about the Ustream Class on Wed., May 27, 2015. I watched the DIY All Occasion Party Banner and made a comment to be entered in the giveaway. The demonstrator (I couldn't find her name anywhere) said that if we comment on the blog we have a chance at winning the grand prize. I couldn't find a link to your blog anywhere on the Ustream page. I went to Faber-Castell website and couldn't find anywhere to write a comment. I went through the Ustream video several times to find out how to get to the page where I was to leave a comment. FINALLY, I discovered that Faber-Castell has a blog. I've looked throughout this blog and couldn't find a place to leave a comment about joining you for the Ustream class on May 27th. When I browsed through the site, the sections are not dated so I had to keep searching. At last I settled on writing to you here on your texture tag demo. Where should I leave a comment to register for the grand prize? Thank you!
