You Didn’t Know Crayons Could Do This


Hello, hello, it’s echo today I would like to talk to you about an underrated art supply that I have become weirdly obsessed with Crayons, I’m an artist in case you didn’t know I’ve been drawing like my whole life So naturally one of the first art supplies that I ever had growing up were crayons and as a child I won Every coloring contest I’ve ever entered into I beat kids double my age with crayons and now that I’m older I’ve realized that crayons are actually a Pretty good art supply if you know how to work with them personally when it comes to coloring things I have a bit of a preference. I don’t like textured color. I like color to be smooth and just Solid and I have felt this way since I was a very young child Textured coloring looks like a mistake you can make it look intentional. But if you don’t it looks like a mistake Disgusting now I could have just found a coloring page for this example But I’m an artist and overachiever and I don’t want to put someone else’s copyrighted work in this video So I made my own it’s just like a cute like clown girl. She’s a bit monster Hi asked I’ll put a link to that in the description If you want to download print and color it yourself, I would extra appreciate if you would tweet it to me It’s a good practice sheet for these advanced crayon techniques. There’s a couple things that kind of suck about crayons They get dull really fast and they’re made from paraffin wax. So they’re waxy and they leave a lot of residue So first, I’m gonna start with the very basic way to use crayons most people would think that as long as you’re coloring within the lines it’s like totally fine and it is but we’re not going for fine Are we we want to get a couple levels above that most people pick their colors as they go and then just generally shade in The area and be done with it. It’s a pretty straightforward way of coloring You know how to basically color then pick your color you pick an area and you shade it in It’s pretty straight forward and then you end up with something a little bit like this If a seven-year-old did this you would be very proud. All the lines are filled in the color placement and choice makes sense This is like a perfectly fine coloring page. There’s nothing wrong with this. It’s reasonable, but I don’t want to be reasonable I want to be Amazing and that’s what I’m gonna show you my way when I want to color something with crayons and I want to make it look real badass the first thing will actually Do is pick out a bunch of colors that are roughly what I want and I’ll make a sample sheet of color when you look At a crayon the color of the crayon might not be the color that ends up on your paper I mean, that’s really just a general art thing. You should always swatch your medium Now I’m going to introduce you to a tool. It is incredibly important to me my scraper This is actually a carving tool for clay. I Use it to remove the wax from my crayon masterpieces This is something that I’ve come across in my adult life that I have been using with crayons recently Because it’s more effective than the method that I used to use which is also going to be the method that I recommend to you when I was in elementary school if I was doing something with crayons I would take a standard number-two pencil rip out the eraser and then smash the metal part and that would essentially give you The exact same tool that I have here Except this one costs like $3 and that one cost like two cents at a very young age I realized that I did not like the texture of Crayons and I did not like the feeling of the wax that was left over So if I was going to color something I would separate the wax in the pigment by just scraping it off And yes It is a very annoying sound to some people and it does get little wax shavings everywhere art is messy deal with it personally I find it very therapeutic when I’m coloring with crayons I use a lot of pressure and push very hard to make sure that I’m getting as much pigment Embedded into the paper as I possibly can when I’m coloring a single block area I will actually pick two colors that are very Similar so that I can make a gradient a gradient is a solid way to kind of hide the crayon texture Also, I recommend coloring in small circles rather than broad strokes. It just helps play an even layer of pigment So I used my two crayons to make a decent gradient I also put extra pressure in the middle so I can try and blend them better. Whatever Crayon color touches the sheet first will be imprinted onto the paper So be very careful of exposed paper and those tiny little wax shavings Because they can leave spots on your drawing You know how alcohol-based markers will have a fine tip and then a brush tip. I treat crayons in the same way So usually I will go over the edge With the sharp point and then fill in the center with the back of the crayon That’s I keep my crayons sharp I very much recommend Coloring your entire page before you begin this next process Because the very last stage in this is a bit of a mess You take your fancy scraper tool and you remove the top layer of Wax leaving nothing, but the pigment that’s embedded in the paper I find this part of the process to be incredibly therapeutic. It’s like a massive scratch or ticket or a giant scratch-and-sniff sticker Also, if you’re surrounded by people, you don’t like it’s a great way to be annoying. Look at that Madness, do you see? Do you see when something is colored with crayons? Even if it’s very lightly you can feel the wax that’s on the page and it doesn’t feel good People will prefer this because it looks and feels printed also It looks like it’s printed in gloss now like a magazine This video is pointless and means nothing unless of course you enter a lot of coloring Contests and you really want kick-ass the amount of coloring contests. I won using this method I’m badass with crayons for reals though. Crayons are very underrated art Supply tell me if you liked this video or if you thought it was weird. That’s okay I’m gonna go live my life and color some stuff with crayons and watch the office and drink coffee like an adult. I’ll give you 850 awesome points for making it all the way to the end of this video, but I think that’s it for now So hopefully I will see you later. Good. Bye Seriously, they’ll try it. It’s really therapeutic

    I won coloring contests in kindergarten for being absurdly creative. I remember we colored frogs once and I gave mine a cloak and drew little rolled leaves and made up a story about the frog creating something and going on a journey to meet the king or something like that… Despite that my coloring abilities sucked…

    Go outside and color with your page on the warm/hot cement it makes the colors brighter and more vibrant! It also makes it look finished and solid even with genetics

    I remember in kindergarten how i was just coloring with crayons and I just scratched off the wax and this kid was being so extra and covering ears like he was right beside a siren and he said “CoULd YoU StOp.” but since I didn’t like him I just scratched with more pressure to make it louder.

    I used to color over crayon with a colored pencil – the pencil wouldnt really add any color bc of the wax but it would "flatten" the wax of the crayon.

    This is such a better idea! Thanks for sharing.
