I have such fond memories of Crayola crayons. They were there at the very beginning of my creative adventures. I always dreamed of working at the Crayola factory and dreaming up new colors and their fun names – Mango Tango, Banana Mania, Inch Worm, Wild Blue Yonder, Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown, Razzle Dazzle Rose. I LOVE THEM!!


The name “Crayola” comes from combining the words craie, which is French for chalk, and ola, for oleaginous, because crayons are made from petroleum based paraffin. You learn something new everyday!


I came across this blog post on ColourLovers on 120 current Crayola crayons with their hex and rgb values. How helpful!
