The Cray-Pen Colored Pigment Melted Wax Crayon Painting Set is a fun new way to paint vibrant color to a variety of surfaces, including glass, wood, canvas, paper and more. I can honestly say that these are not your mothers' crayons! The Surebonder Cray-Pen Painting Set with 20 Variety Color Pack comes with two different sized copper tips. This is a fabulous and fun new method of coloring or painting with melted wax colors. This tool is great for adults to express themselves creatively.
As you can see in the video, the tool and colored wax can color wood, canvas, glass and even Easter eggs (not the plastic ones...the hot tip will possibly melt the plastic). This is really easy to use; you just dip the heated tip onto the colored wax crayon and then color the project with by transferring the wax onto the project. There are eighteen color pucks. The wax dries in seconds. Also, projects can be retouched by just dipping the heated tip onto colored wax and transferring the hot colored wax onto the surface of the project.
- Neon Palette
- Standard Palette
- Secondary Palette (flesh tones, etc.)
- Bold tip
- Fine tip
The tool and hot wax can be used to color on paper too (like the adult coloring books).
Because of the pigments used in the wax crayon material, the colors are fairly vibrant which allows for some lovely patterning. I also pressed stamps onto the wax while it is cooling to get some unusual effects. However, the wax cools quickly so I had to work fast. I did paint some canvas with it but I found I needed to show some care while coloring on it. It could have been the quality of the canvas I was using, so I won't blame the tool for the indentations left on the canvas.
