I've done crayons before, but this time with much more success.
And, I am happy to say that this is off my to do list, and my WIP pile. My sister and I tried to make crayons last year ( maybe even longer than that) and we didn't do so great.
Here's what I had to start with. You can see our failed attempted at letters!
This time, I stuck the tins in a pot of water and brought (water) to a boil.
Once melted, I poured into a candy mold. I've used a silicone mold before but they broke coming out.
I put them in the freezer to speed up the cooling process.
Repeat until your out of crayons to melt. Put in a bowl, and color away!
.Note: some of the "clear" looking crayons don't work well, its the cheap crayons. But, if you pour them "clear" off and then use the remaining crayon wax and your fine!
