All you need to create this piece is crayons in shades of blue (I also used silver & grey), a hot glue gun & glue sticks, a hair dryer, canvas, acrylic paint in red and black, and matte varnish (optional).
Similar to all my other mixed-media crayon art, I always sketch out and plan ahead before jumping into it. So I drew the silhouette of my girl with her umbrella in pencil first. Then I laid out the crayons at the top before gluing them on (just in case!). Once I had it laid out the way I wished for it to appear, I glued on my crayons. After letting it sit for a couple of minutes, I busted out my handy dandy hair dryer and went to work melting. Don't forget to put a garbage bag and newspapers down! Just in case! I've learned the hard way before.....This one I was pretty particular about (in terms of how the crayons melted). Luckily this piece co-operated pretty well and I didn't have any major mishaps.....You never know what can go wrong with these types of pieces..... After letting it sit for a bit (and my arms needed a break from holding up the hair dryer for so long!), I started to paint. Et voila! This is what I came up with! The girl who loves the rain! Let's get honest, who doesn't love jumping in the puddles on a rainy night?!
