Today, there are approximately 120 colors of crayons currently available. Some have glow in the dark properties, some are scratch and sniff, some change colors when used on paper, others have glitter combined with the crayola crayons wax in such a way as to allow drawing made with glitter crayons to glisten in the sunlight. From a parenting perspective, the easy wash off the walls formula is a scientific breakthrough of phenomenal proportions.
In 1903, Binney & Smith realized that if they made a few changes to the crayon they developed for marking crates, they could provide a less messy alternative to the crayons used in their public schools at that time. Binney & Smith tasked a chemist of their company to work at creating crayons that would be both non-toxic and easily mass produced. Binney & Smith were successful in the endeavor to create crayons that would work well for a young school children and soon the cousins were selling a box of eight crayons for about a nickel under the trade name of Crayola. The first box contained the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown and black. Forty years later there was forty more colors added to the color pallette. By the seventies fluorescent colors were added to the line up which brought the number of colors available up to seventy-two.
Most often, Conte Crayons are used on rough-textured or high-grained paper that holds pigment well, permitting rich textures and wide ranges of tonality. Conte crayons work well on prepared primed canvases as well, for the purpose of underdrawing for a painting. The Conte Crayon stick, being square and small in size, is suitable for detailed work, especially if the tip is beveled to a point by rubbing it on a sandpaper pad.
Another way to apply color is by rubbing your pencil crayon on a piece of scrap and ”dipping” the blender pen into the color before applying. This will create a softer effect. Another way to watercolor is by using your ink pad. With the lid shut, push in the middle of the pad to create a pool of ink on the lid. Then you simply dip your blender pen into the ink and paint into the image. By doing this, you can create a stronger coloring effect.
Sun catchers: Children love the colors that are thrown across the room through sun catchers. You can help your child create a melted crayon wax sun catcher. Give your child a pencil sharpener and let them make crayon shavings. Fold a large sheet of wax paper and sprinkle crayon shavings on half of it. With a warm iron, run the iron over the wax paper quickly. Allow the wax paper to cool and then cut it into various shapes. Make butterflies or flowers with holes in them where you can tape the melted crayon wax sun catcher on the back so the light and colors shine through.
The history of Conte Crayon is interesting. During the French Revolution, when Paris was under siege, much needed supplies of English graphite were permanently embargoed, creating a problem for the French pencil-maker, artist and scientist Nicholas-Jacques Conté. Conté had opened his pencil factory with his brother, Louis in 1793. For his business to survive, he had to find another way to produce a workable writing medium with a minimal amount of graphite that could be manufactured in France.
