Using Marabu Art Crayons

I had so much fun with this color embossing technique, using Marabu Art Crayons and embossing plates. I love how the color moves when water is added. The results are playful and colorful and can be used so many different ways. I think the results would be great for card backgrounds, die-cutting, mixed media, collage, scrapbooking, and more.

Thank you to Marabu and Maker’s Movement for providing materials that were used in this post.

Art Crayon Mixing with Marabu

See how Marabu art crayons mix and work on different paper surfaces.

To start working with Art Crayons by Marabu, I wanted to test them out on different paper surfaces. I’ve not used Art Crayons before and I was excited when Marabu sent them to me. Within the first stroke, I was drawn to the creamy feel, so rich! I think you will love them too. Watch the video below to see how I tested the crayons and how they reacted to different surfaces.

Some materials used were supplied by companies I work with. Some links are affiliates – thank you for considering to use them.
