DAYBOOK with melted Paper Crafter Crayons™


\7fc

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 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.
