Making crayons workshop


In this 120 minute workshop, I will teach you to make a variety of crayons. I go over pigment options that range from toddler-safe to UV resistant, where to purchase them and how to forage for and process pigments from earth and plants. I cover melting points, wax options, and other important information about working with wax and pigments which can be applied to other disciplines.
