my desk today

razkazz: I love those crayons you made! if you don't mind me asking, how did you make them? like your method? did you melt the wax first then pour them into the molds? I have been collecting broken and lost crayons for so long and would love to be able to do something neat with them!

Hi there & thank you! 

I did a mix of breaking apart the crayons and also grating crayons and pouring tiny shavings onto the broken ones to fill up the molds. 

i melted them in the oven at 275 f which only takes a few minutes. i kept an an eye on it rather than time it and took them out as soon as all the crayons melted - once out of the oven, i placed them in the fridge for a few moments and then moved them to the freezer because i’m impatient. 

once they are very cold they are quite easy to pop out

it feels like autumn today

Let me just start by saying, I am terrified to share this. I’ve been thinking about writing it since I heard the news about Robin Williams’ suicide.

I have depression. And anxiety. About 3 years ago, I was hospitalized for it. Not for a suicide attempt, but because I had hit bottom, and I didn’t…

Melissa Mendes wrote about dealing with depression. Many people in alternative comics and in the arts suffer from depression. Not a lot of people choose to discuss their experiences. We all benefit from trying to understand how depression affects a person. Thanks for posting this, Melissa.
