Hello there! So you may have noticed some things are a bit different. I am finally in my new art space, this is just a whole art space dedicated to filming and I- and I'm so excited! I have a load of cool stuff over here that you can't see on camera but if you would like to see that and you'd like a studio tour when it's all completed give this video a thumbs up and if it gets to like, 12,000 likes I'll do a studio tour for you very very soon. But this is my most highly requested video because I have actually never copied art hacks from Troom Troom. Um, and then their question- questionable thumbnails make things quite interesting. One of my personal favorites is this "13 Drawing Tricks and Hacks You Should Know" video from a week ago. When I watched this video there was no foil marker in the video whatsoever, so this first hack involves a big paint brush that you then paint a very creepy looking face onto. I personally have always wanted a… creepy faced paint brush in my room. So I thought instead of painting a really creepy little face on there, I would instead paint the Wilson face. The little fibers of brush hair kind of reminded me of the little leaves that Tom Hanks stuck in the top of his head. So uh, that's what that looks like so far as you can see. Aww, he looks a little bit cross-eyed and constipated but, *short pause* he's okay. I'll add him to my shelf. Okay, so this one I'm very excited for because I have seen this on Pinterest before and it's just a really cool way to hang your like, acrylic paints and have it as, like displayed on the wall. Um, I don't really need to do this but I kind of want to do it cause I think it looks cool. Ooh, this smells weird, it kind of… it kinda, it smells a bit like a cheese rice cake or like sweet corn. Is that a weird description? Probably. And essentially what you do is *pause* have a second person to help you, so you take… *longer pause* So here's our binder clip! Here is our pin. So I've got some of my favorite acrylic paints here. I've got my binder clip, so I'm just gonna use to clip that onto there. And then essentially it just hooks on, like that. Look how cool that looks! I am fully going for this. I mean I, I… I have wanted to do this cool idea for so long and it's just a good excuse to finally do it. Ah, that looks so cool! WILSON!! You could probably like, probably space these apart with a measuring tape, but I've just moved, I don't have a clue where there is a measuring tape. *Music* Ugh, this stinks of sweet corn, I don't like it. Tada! Look how cool this is gonna look when I actually hang it. So that's what I found randomly on a Lego Troom Troom video, and basically they took a bunch of crayons, cut them up, and put them into a silicone mold. Then they put them in the oven to melt them, and basically, once that was done they let them cool, took them out of the silicone mold and basically made a brand new crayon which in my opinion, is actually a really fun and cool idea. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any cool Lego man molds, but I did find a mint bunny silicone mold, which I'm gonna- I'm gonna make some bunny crayons today. My only concern is there is no way that one crayon is gonna fill up this entire container, so I'm probably gonna have to mix a few different colors to make- ohh, that's a video idea. Has anyone done that before, like melting all crayons together and then making one giant crayon? It's probably been done hasn't it? Okay, now I have hand cramp. We're gonna make two crayons today because we can't fill this pan up. For the sake of making a really cute and fun crayon, it's not worth it. It just takes so long to do this. Right, so now I have my two containers filled with crayons, I am gonna go stick it in the oven, melt it, and then I will be back to show you how it looks. Okay so I put them in the oven, they were on for 300 degrees Fahrenheit for about five minutes or so, I then put them in the freezer not long after to make them a solid and we're gonna try them out. Oh, he broke dammit!! So they look a bit odd, um… *awkward pause* yep, but… they work like regular crayon, which isn't really a surprise because I thought they would but, if you want to make kind of a broken shape, or like a less intricate shape than this, I think this would work really well. That one's actually really impressive. Is my laptop gonna bloody take off or what? So this next hack is for people who only own one color of pencil and don't own any regular like, school pencils whatsoever. Essentially you can take a… one color of pencil and if you need it to be gray you take a lighter, you burn the end and make it gray. So for the sake of being just like they were, I've got a pink pencil here, I'm going to draw a… let's- let's go crazy here and draw a circle. *sarcastically* Oh no, I only have one pink pencil. What? What? *Drums fingers on table* What do I do? Oh, I know! I could take this brand new lighter that I just bought and burn the end. Don't try this at home. OH! Oh dear. Oh dear. Okay. Oh my god, okay. Don't do that. Don't do that. Don't, it's wood. That was a stupid idea. Did it ruin my pencil? Yes it did. Yes, yes it did. I think this one is probably my favorite, um, they've- oh more fire! More fire. I don't know if I trust myself. They've made some slippers with bubble wrap; *sarcastically* they're gonna stay on aren't they? Okay, okay. Okay, oh! *awkward pause* So I think I need to stick my hair up for this one. Gonna cut some shoe shapes out of bubble wrap, make a matching size… *Loud crash* Something fell. So we have… This is so dangerous. Nobody try this at home. I mean it's, and it's not; it's just melting the plastic! It's not actually melting it together!! So we're making a mitten, not a shoe because I've burnt myself and I can also smell plastic. And we're going to get some paper and just stamp it to get a pattern. So we're gonna brush this paint onto here. *Music* So now we have our little mitten, it kind of looks like Squidward *stammering* Tin, Tentacle… TENTACLES. No. So if we just like, can you see? Just… Oh, okay! I mean, it looks cool. You could just literally cut out a piece of plastic and just do that and get the exact same effect. So this side was me with my hand inside the… mitten sock bubble wrap as you can see, and this was me just stamping it on as it was. Actually, you can see there's not really much difference, so that's what we've got. Just use bubble wrap on its own. This one I just thought was a really cool idea, essentially they've taken a kitchen sponge, they've stuck it into like a cup, and then they make like, a cut into it and put some acetone inside. I mean, I'd probably use like white vinegar or something but basically it's supposed to help clean your brushes off if they're kind of drying up. So I have to sponge the damp sponges from before because they put solution on it for some reason and that doesn't help me. So now I have lots of like, areas to smush my paintbrushes into and then we're just gonna pour it- *pause* like that. I still smell THAT CORK BOARD! So I have a dry paintbrush here as you can see. I feel like this is not a good idea, it's just gonna destroy the fibers in my honest opinion. Let's say, try this with white vinegar, might help, might not. I feel like this will also mess up the bristles. Look, look at this. Can you see, the bristles are like all over the place now? I mean it might not- it might not help with dried paintbrushes, but it might work for non- this one is no-go. It might work if I soaked it but I don't want to soak it. So I just took like my used paintbrush here that's not dried up, if I put it in here… *Music* I mean, it's still not really cleaning it up any better than water does on its own so I would definitely say don't stink your house out. Because water does exactly the same. This is just not really doing anything at all. And it's just gonna ruin your brush fibers so zero out of 10 for this one. So this one I'm probably most excited for, it's the very last one and it looks fun. It looks stupid but it looks fun, basically she has a tub that she fills with shaving foam (not a waste at all). And she then takes some acrylic paint, puts it on top and then uses a fork to stir it in, to give it a pretty pattern. After that she takes a piece of paper, puts it on top and then she's got a really cool… pattern thing. I mean, maybe I'm wrong, but I wouldn't have thought that's the result of it. Maybe it is, I don't trust it. I mean I could be wrong. Maybe it does look like that when it dries. So I've got some shaving foam… *Shaving foam spraying* It doesn't sound very happy about it, does it? *Acrylic paint being squeezed* This sounds in pain too. Gonna use some blue cuz why not? Right. Okay. So now we're gonna stir it. So it looks quite cool, right? I mean it looks quite neat. Uh, got our sheet of paper and we're just gonna like… this gives me stress because of the mess that could potentially happen. Okay, Yeah, that didn't do a very good job. I need to try again. *Music* *Paper peeling off* Oh no, I'm bringing it all with me. *coughs* Okay, okay. Covered in shaving foam now, but it kind of worked. So that is everything for today! Thank you so incredibly much for watching, I hope that you enjoyed the video. This is probably the messiest one I've done so far so, this is great. Thank you all so much for suggesting that I make this video, if you would like to see me do more or you have any ideas for what you'd like to see me try next, let me know in the comments down below. And yes, thank you so incredibly much for watching, I hope that you enjoyed the video, take care of yourselves and I will see you in the next video. *Music*


  1. I've never had an art "space" before!! I have filmed every video and done all of my art in my bedroom before so to have this little space is really great. It's still a work in progress as I had to remove a lot of shelves (it's actually a closet but nobody needs to know that shhh) and spent the week painting. I'd love to show you all soon!

  2. You could have used umm one of those cheese shredders (grates) to grind it more easily. Sorry for my English it’s kinda bad

  3. I would like to point out she could of used the acrilic paint hole to hold on by the thumb instead of the other thing

  4. If you mix cornstarch into into shaving foam one it makes this clay like playdough stuff. It's a fun this to do with kids to keep them busy, it's an awful mess to clean up, would recommend doing outside on a table with a plastic table cover so you can clean it up easier.
