With classes starting tomorrow I thought I would post a Back to School related post!!
I love using crayons in crafting for all sorts of things. I wanted to see what would happen it I used them with resin. It's a neat and unique look!!
I used EasyCast Resin, Castin' Crafts Mold Release, a bracelet mold, crayons, and a sharpener.
*ETI suggests wearing gloves when working with resin for safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice :)
Start by picking some crayon colors. Unwrap them and make piles of the crayon shavings.
Make piles of each color you want to use.
Mix up a batch of EasyCast Resin and spray your mold with mold release.
This is a mold from Yaley Enterprises.
They make resin and Deep Flex Resin Molds along with a variety of colorants.

Fill the mold about half full of clear resin.
Put pinches of crayon shavings into the resin. You can make patterns or just go at random.
Make sure that the crayon is completely submerged in the resin.
Top it off with some more resin to be sure the crayon is fully encapsulated.
You can add more shavings if you have gaps! Then let set for 24-72 hours until hardened.
The crayons keep the original color and have a very unique texture. These crayons are too cool for school!!
