Click here and learn how to do this crayon art.
I’m thinking about trying this myself but with darker colours and a bit of glitter. Maybe I can create galaxy image. What do you think?
How to carve a ribbon crayon. You need a crayon (duh), a sharp exacto knife and a paint brush. You can use a thin piece of tape if you need help “outlining” the ribbon.
With your knife, make short “scratches” on the crayon, as if you were drawing soft pencil lines. Keep the crayon flat so it doesn’t break. As the ribbon starts taking shape, make sure you work equally on the whole crayon. Some times they break but that’s ok, try again.
Congratulations, you did art, asshats!
Here’s to the assholes who insist my shit’s fake… Do you see my hands? What about the normal background?!

Forget coloring with crayons, Hoang Tran makes art with them using dentistry tools. The amount of detail he works into something no wider than a pixie stick is phenomenal. And here my 4th grade art teacher swore up and down that color pencils were superior.
BEHOLD! Mrs. D! ‘Tis the waxy allure of the crayon!!
My first and last attempt at crayon melting art plus my 2 cents of lazy crap elephant… but still proud of it just cause I didn’t think I’d ever do it. Kinda gets nastier the more I look at it.. man, the flaws.
For Stephanie Wong. She asked me to help her make a crayon melting art thing. At one point we got lazy, so I just told her I’d take it home and finish it. That way, when she comes back I’d have it done. That was like 2+ months ago. I finished something I started. That’s hard for me to do.
Sunnyvale, CA-based artist Hoang Tran (previously featured here) continues to create so many awesome pop culture-based crayon sculptures that we can’t help but share some more. Last time we featured crayon sculptures of Adventure Time characters. Today we’re treated to carved and painted pieces from Doctor Who, Spirited away, Star Wars, Hellboy, The Sandman, and sweet little BMO (who was still a work in progress last time).
