In the grownup world where no one has time, where everyone is hypnotised by stereotype, where "I" is more important than "We"... There grows little harts whose imagination is far more unique and unlimited than any magic seen in fairytales...! Don't let it fade away.......

You will need : clay, beads, crayons.
Exercising those little fingers encourage them to roll and pull and squeeze clay, make different shapes until they have a smooth ball.
Once you are happy with the ball - press hard on it and make a pancake. Using needle write your name in the clay. Gently stretch the clay - lines you drew in it will stretch and leave gaps wider. That will make beading for those little fingers much easier.
Start putting beads in-between the lines.
Once the whole name is beaded, prepare crayons. Chop them in as thin pieces as you can. Then using fingers press into the clay making a space to put in crayon shavings. Any shapes you want. We chose flower shape. Add crayons to your artwork !
Now it's time to melt crayons and complete the artwork. I turned on grill in the oven and left the whole piece in the oven for about 3 minutes. Don't close the oven door, you just need to melt crayons a little bit not bake the whole clay. Otherwise the smell of melting plastic from beads will be unbearable. I tried melting it with hairdryer, bit pieces of crayon was flying everywhere (obviously... my blondness kicked in... ).
Job done ! Leave it over night to get hard.
