I recently found a box of crayons buried in the deepest darkest corners of my house that I surely never planned on doing anything with. At least, not until the theme was posted for the August COTM.
To make things more interesting, I decided to focus on one of the least used colors in the box- white. I chose to work in reverse on dark paper to get the best use of it. The first subject that came to mind was a snow leopard.
I found crayons a much bigger nuisance than I remembered, as it wouldn't layer as thickly as I needed and clumped constantly. I used Bestine, a rubber cement thinner, as solvent to try and even them out. This worked to an extent, but I still had white flecks scattered throughout the piece. I attempted to compensate by adding flurries of snow, so that the flecks might be taken as small flakes.
All in all, "I really like how this turned out." ;)
