Coloring with crayons

KP-CrayonPortraitYes, I was born when the Beatles came over (you do the math) and I’m still playing with crayons.  Some things never change. I’ve been working on several styles of portraits. One portrait style with fabric, another with paint and this one with crayon. Yes, these are crayola crayons….no fancy artist crayons here. They are acid free, so they won’t damage fabric. Heat setting with an iron will make them permanent. Be sure to sandwich the image between a paper towel when heat setting. The iron will melt the wax and leave the pigment.

I’m pretty happy with the results. There are a few things I would change. Like, begin with the eyes and make sure the crayon is sharp.
