Wax color explosion

2 Sep

The other day my girlfriend found this interesting blog showing what someone did with melting wax crayons. That blog was in turn inspired by this seller on Etsy. We decided to give it our own spin. We thought a color wheel would look neat, but that we’d rotate the canvas as we went to create a starburst-like explosion. The center was left with a big void that we eventually decided to fill with a mirror. (Since the theme was visible light, what better than a mirror?) Instead of using a hair dryer, we used the tip of a hot glue gun. This allowed us greater precision in melting the wax and left the piece with an amazing texture that jumps off the canvas at you. Check it out!
