Chameleon crayon art

This is pretty neat, and very fun
we took advantage of the chameleons colors to do
the stained glass effect

first we peeled little pieces of crayons

then we placed a chameleons coloring sheet on the table
on top we put wax paper and then
using a pencil sharpener we put crayon shavings
on top of the wax paper, then
place another piece of wax paper on top
and iron it, the crayon will melt quick
and spread mixing the colors

this is a close up of the crayon shavings

when is dry, you cut it.

the chameleon that you see at the bottom
is the coloring sheet that was underneath the wax paper.

The proyect came from Martha Stewart website
