Tutorial: I'll Stop the World and Melt With You
Anyone who owns crayons has at least a few broken bits laying around. Don't toss 'em, melt 'em! It's really fun and easy to turn ugly lumps of wax into beautiful, smooth, swirly heart shaped crayons! They're fun to give as gifts, especially around Valentine's day!
I sorted mine into color-themes: blue and green, pink and red, orange and yellow but you could *yawn!* make solid colors instead or get really wild and just mix colors together randomly. Be sure to take them from the oven gently or the colors will all mix together.
Choose which crayons to use, decide on a color palette.
Put pieces into the mini-heart pan until the bottom is pretty much covered, three or four pieces should be fine.
Let cool completely, about an hour or overnight then pop out of the pan and enjoy!
