but rock lives on

November 19, 2017

Today I spent like five hours making crayons, from motherfucking scratch, and beeswax. Also multiple other waxes, and natural pigments.

They’re for the gift bags we’ll be donating to Doernbecher children’s hospital this Christmas. There were many air bubbles. There were many pigment mistakes. There were many crack and crumbles. I had to remelt and re-tint/re-cast so many of them I thought it would never end. But, at long last:

Snowflakes

flakes

Trees

trees

Gingerbreads

gingers

I may never actually get the wax out from under my fingernails and my arms are probably permanently pock marked from countless splash and sizzles, but I am superbly proud of myself. Yesterday I didn’t know how to make crayons. Now I can make them like a little eight armed robot. Almost.
