Crayon Batik

I made me a shirt for St.Patrick's day but I wanted to try crayon batik on a t-shirt and I just so happened to have this shamrock sitting on my desk. I placed a piece of wax paper down on my ironing board, then the t-shirt and then  a shamrock. I took a knife and scraped a crayon all over the shamrock (pic 1), cover it with another piece of wax paper and iron it until it is all melted (pic 2). I could tell that was not going to be enough, so I scraped some more and ironed again. I removed the shamrock, placed a paper towel over the design and ironed again to remove any excess 
crayon. This was quick and fun. I think I will try to just color a shamrock onto a t-shirt and then iron it.
