My professor in college had made a wood 'box' with a lightbulb inside, it was
designed to hold a muffin tin, in each muffin space we put a different color
of old crayons. They melted, but weren't too hot. We used Q-tips to apply
them to do encaustic painting.

<< I have a great idea for recycling those small broken crayons! I used to
them for encaustic painting! The kids loved it! I would melt the crayons
allow the children to use old paintbrushes to paint the wax on small pieces
scrap wood. They built the wax up layer upon layer and make lovely sculpted
paintings they were proud of! They are so unique that it inspires the
students to the point that they don't want to stop! LOL! >>
