Specialty crayons

Along with the regular packs of crayons, there have been many specialty sets, including Silver Swirls,[6] Gem Tones,[7] Pearl Brite,[8] Metallic FX,[9] Magic Scent,[10] Silly Scents,[11] and more.

Fluorescent crayons

In 1972, Binney & Smith introduced eight Crayola fluorescent crayons, designed to fluoresce under black light. The following year, they were added to the 72-count box, which had previously contained two of the eight most-used colors, in place of the duplicate crayons. These crayons remained steady until 1990, when all eight were renamed, and eight more were added, for a total of sixteen fluorescent crayons. One of the new colors, Hot Magenta, shared a name with one of the original colors, now Razzle Dazzle Rose. For some reason, two of the original eight fluorescent crayons have the same color as two of the newer crayons. In 1992, the fluorescent colors were added to the new No. 96 box, becoming part of the standard lineup. When four new crayons were added to the No. 96 assortment in 2003, four existing colors were discontinued, including two of the fluorescents. Also beginning in 1993, packs of fluorescent crayons were regularly labeled "neon" or "neons".[2]

Footnotes

  1. ^ Due to several factors, the values given should only be considered approximations. The apparent color of any crayon depends on the thickness with which the wax is laid down, the color and brightness of the surface being colored, and other considerations, such as the age and quality of individual crayons. In addition, crayons are produced using pigments, which are normally described using subtractive colors, with the primary colors of red, yellow, and blue; but electronic displays produce colors using the additive method, combining the primary colors of red, green, and blue.
  2. ^ Unless otherwise indicated, the hex colors were found in the source code of the Crayola website.[1]
  3. ^ Crayola's digital swatch has the same value as "Laser Lemon".
  4. ^ Crayola's digital swatch has the same values as those of Purple Pizzazz.
  5. ^ Crayola's digital swatch has the same values as those of Hot Magenta (1990–present).
