These unique pieces of art are by Jessica Kerbawy, who arranges crayons on a foam board before melting them with a heat gun. If you love ‘em, you can see more of her work on Etsy.

nice – but reminds me of the Apple Nano ‘nano chromatic’ ads with the iPods arranged in colour order dripping….
but – hey – there are no original ideas right

The question is what is Art? I class this as a craft – that I saw on a crafting for kids blog hot glue gun some crayons on canvas and blow hair dryer in downwards motion until it drips! a looong time ago done by 4 year olds. 1. not orginal and 2. art? hrm
I won’t take away the fact that it does look cool. But someone is jumping the shark here I think and a little behind the times.

I really like the last one. I would hang that in my living room!

Man, I didn’t realize the comments were filled with trained art critics.

I saw a segment on “Better Homes and Gardens” (a lifestyle tv show), that showed you how to create this same exact artwork… Kinda takes the shine of the concept.

I have seen this about 20 times on various craft sites. They are melted crayons…. In a rainbow… I don’t get it. Why has this particular craft idea captivated so many bloggers? And then people seem inclined to put said melted crayons onto their wall, in a frame, like some kind of gay pride flag in their living room. I am mystified by this, it really isn’t all that inspiring or am I missing something here?

I think it brings us back to our childhood when we accidentally left our crayons in the sun. I saw one with green crayons melted then turned over and flowers glued at the top of the stalks. It’s cute and fun for the kids…who doesn’t love a good rainbow. Its my favorite sight after the rain and I don’t think it’s fair to always associate it with being gay. Rainbows are a magical wonder of nature

Very pretty to look at initially but having very little substance I’m tired of it already.
Share your favourite cultural finds with the Lost At E Minor community and become famous in the process. Well, kinda.
