Crayons are one of the first ways that humans learn to make colors. They were produced mostly during the 1980s, and came in three packages: The 12-pack, the 64-pack, and the 64-pack that included a Crayon sharpener.
There are 13 different colors of Crayons, each with its own name:
There are three major Crayon techniques:
- using the point,
- using the butt,
- and side-style.
Using the point is most traditional, but many people find that the butt yields sharper, crisper lines. Side-style is a good technique if you wish to cover large areas with color, but then make the Crayon useless in the future, since it requires removing the Crayon's wrapping, or clothes.
One of the worst things that can be done with Crayons is to tear off the clothing of the Crayon. When a crayon is naked, it gets all up on your skin and can't be used effectively. Most naked Crayons are thrown into the bottoms of buckets or used for science.
Science with CrayonsEdit
If you want to do science and have a Crayon, you can make it naked and then put it in the sun to rest. In a few minutes or hours, you'll have a puddle of color that you can scoop into an awaiting ice tray and freeze. Wait 40 minutes, and you'll have a science cube.
