I am working on a new artsy crafty project now. I was inspired by the crayon art projects floating around the blogsphere.
I started to gather the materials needed for this project. First and foremost, the crayon. I chose Buncho for its price and colours, oh well, and pretty much the customer loyalty factor too. I remember using the Buncho poster colours back in school. Got this 48 colours for RM13.90 [Note: RM3 ~ USD1]
After that I gather all the other materials that I thought I would need. If you have the same question as I did, thanks to lightandspoon, who confirmed that there’s no need to gesso the canvas beforehand.
Some marker pens
Oh, and hair dryer

Step 2: Fill the drawn area with marker
This is the completed result :D
Step 3: Cover the area from umbrella down with masking tape
Step 4: Prepare the frame
