I've always had a thing for Crayola crayons. The big 64 box. Which my mother never let me have. I bought one of those for myself right after I graduated college, just because I could. I still have that box and that was a very, very long time ago.
The other day, while browsing around the thrift store, I spied a big plastic bag full of crayons and a mini-muffin tin. Didn't I see a tutorial online for making your own crayons with bits of old, broken crayons? I certainly did. While this bag of crayons was full of in tact crayons instead of broken nubs, I decided I could sacrifice them for the sake of science.
And the finished product:
Next time, I think I'll keep similar colors together and leave out the darkest colors completely. Wouldn't these be great for a kid's birthday party?
