318. Crayon Skull
Arranged Grated Crayons, before and after melting (approx. 7.5in x 7.5in [19cm x 19cm]). Definitely a flashback to early childhood here. For the life of me I can't remember who suggested this one, so thanks to whoever you are! If you're wondering, I grated the crayons with a cheese grater and placed them on a piece of wax paper; after photographing I put a second piece of wax paper on top and piece of plain paper and then ironed briefly on the lowest setting; finally I peeled back the top layer of wax paper to reveal the results. This is the second of two attempts. I didn't photograph the first before melting it too much and ended up with a blurry blob that looked nothing like a skull.
