Crayon goodness

Marbled crayons!! I guess they've been around a while but I have just stumbled across the idea (cannot remember where). I nearly fell off my chair with excitement when I first saw them and had to make them immediately!! Unfortunately I did not have any broken ones to use so I went out and bought some. :) We also bought some bug and train silicone moulds. unfortunately the train moulds were a bit big so we only used the bug ones.

After peeling what seemed like a billion bits of paper off the tiny little cheap crayons we melted them in the oven. I found they took a lot longer than the tutorials I saw. I put the oven on 150 deg Celsius and checked them every few minutes. It took at least 15mins. My oven is pretty old so maybe that's why we needed longer... Hmmm...

So here's how they turned out...

Ok... that's all for now.

Happy crafting,
