I've been wanting to melt crayons for quite a while, but I didn't have wax paper. So today I decided to try melting crayon sharpenings in a laminating pouch. AND... it made a terrible mess. The laminator squished all the crayon pieces out of the laminating pouch and it went all over the place. Luckily I was able to stop the laminator and get some crayons out before it got worse. I'm not sure if it will work anymore, it took 4 pieces of paper to get all the wax out of the machine and it had a strange smell. I can't believe I made such a stupid mistake. So don't try it. I'll have to find another way to melt crayon pieces without and iron and wax paper.
While I was searching I came across this blog with a beautiful crayon art piece. I would love to try it sometime.
