    I have made melted crayons in molds a few years ago. I couldn’t remember what temperature so your site was the top on the list. I put them in the oven and it melted my mold. I was so disappointed. I make my students crayon brains when we learn about it in science. I looked at 4 other posts after this disaster and they all had the temps at 200 to 250 degrees. So 350 is much too hot and melts the mold.ReplyCancel

      Stacy – I’m so sorry to hear that! We’ve never had any problems with molds melting, so maybe your molds are made of a different material! I will add a note to the post.ReplyCancel
