  3. Wow!!! They are really something. And to think, I just use crayons to color with.

  4. Amazing find. Someone had to have a lot of patience to carve those. Beautiful.

  5. Cool!!! And to think - my granddaughters think it is great art to melt crayons onto a board with a hair dryer. They need to learn to carve!

  6. This was a great post. I do a little wood carving but I've always thought about wax carving. No dust and mess like wood.

  7. I always look forward to your 'wordless Wednesdays' for just this kind of thing. What work! They're fantastic. Thanks

  8. Reading this on my new big-screen laptop. The colors are beautiful and now I can see the tiny carved crayons. I look forward to reading
    many more posts.


Thank you for your comments - we LOVE them!
