Oct 29, 2018


Welcome to The Poker Club at West Houston's guide on how to melt and make gorgeous gemstone crayons. In this comprehensive tutorial, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of creating unique and beautiful crayons that will surely spark joy in both kids and adults alike.

The Art of Gemstone Crayons

Gemstone crayons are a wonderful way to explore your creativity and add a touch of elegance to your artwork. Unlike regular crayons, gemstone crayons feature vibrant colors and fascinating shapes inspired by precious gemstones.

Gathering Materials

Before we dive into the exciting world of gemstone crayon making, let's gather the materials you'll need:

  • Wax crayons in various colors
  • Silicone gemstone-shaped molds
  • A heat-resistant container
  • A double boiler or microwave-safe bowl
  • A stirring utensil
  • Paper towels or cloth

The Melting Process

Now that we have our materials ready, let's move on to the melting process:

  1. Start by unwrapping your wax crayons and breaking them into small pieces. Sorting them by color will make the process more organized.
  2. Next, place the broken crayon pieces into the heat-resistant container. If you're using a double boiler, fill the bottom pot with water and place the container with crayon pieces in the top pot. If you're using a microwave-safe bowl, simply put the crayon pieces in the bowl.
  3. If using a double boiler, heat the water on low to medium heat. If using a microwave, microwave the crayon pieces in short intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted.
  4. Once the crayon pieces have melted into a smooth liquid, it's time to pour them into the silicone gemstone-shaped molds. Be careful not to overflow the molds.
  5. Allow the crayon-filled molds to cool and harden for a few hours. Placing them in the refrigerator can speed up the process.
  6. Once completely hardened, carefully remove the gemstone crayons from the molds. Use a gentle twisting motion to release them without breaking.

Tips for Creating Beautiful Gemstone Crayons

To ensure the best results and create truly stunning gemstone crayons, consider the following tips:

  • Experiment with different color combinations to create unique gemstone effects.
  • Use metallic or glitter crayons for an extra touch of sparkle.
  • Add a few drops of scented oil to the melted crayon mixture to create fragrant gemstone crayons.
  • For a smoother finish, gently tap the filled molds on a flat surface to remove any air bubbles before allowing them to cool.


Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to melt and make gorgeous gemstone crayons. Now it's time to unleash your creativity and enjoy the vibrant world of gemstone-inspired artwork. Whether you create beautiful drawings, unique gifts, or simply want to have fun with colors, gemstone crayons are an excellent choice for artists of all ages and skill levels.
