Rainbow Transfer Paper DIY

You will need:

1. Wax crayons 6-7 colors (red, orange, yellow, green, light blue (optional), blue, purple);

2. Parchment paper (cut it in A4 size pages);

3. Griddle or electric frying pan;

4. Foil.

5. Ruler (optional).

Cover a griddle with foil to keep it from getting dirty.


Set temperature on the griddle on the lowest setting. 


Put parchment paper on the griddle and draw diagonal lines, alternating crayons of each color of rainbow (remember the rhyme - Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain))

Use a ruler to make the lines straight.

Regulate temperature of the griddle - warm surface helps crayons to spread more smoothly, but they shouldn't melt! 

Older kids may enjoy this step under adult's supervision - just make sure the griddle is not too hot.

Helpful tips

You don't need to make the crayons' lines diagonal (like I did), or they even don't need to be straight! Make your rainbow horizontal, vertical, circular - whatever makes you happy. Let your imagination soar!

Also, you can try using glitter or metallic crayons instead of regular ones - and don't forget to share your creations with us!!
