Making crayons

1

Remove the paper of the crayons… boring at the beginning but fun once you get into the groove (like bursting bubble wrap wink emoticon )

2

Chop them into little bits

3

Fill them up in silicon moulds of any shape that you like… 

11

Microwave them at the maximum temp for 3 mins

12

They will just start to melt… Add glitter at this point and stir gently (like a swirl or two) to mix in the glitter… Use a toothpick to stir…. And then microwave for another two mins on high…

13

Get them out again just move the toothpick in the melted crayons… Like one stroke…. To ensure the glitter has spread evenly… Do not mix too much or the crayons will become a boring dark colour…

14

After a total of 7 mins of microwaving… The crayons are kept too cool… When they were a little above room temp… I popped them in the freezer… Just to hasten the procedure… I had to make 200 crayons and just had two moulds…
