    Burnt Sienna

    I too was fascinated by the names of crayons.  But one thing has always puzzled me.  What color is sienna if it hasn't been burnt.   What is sienna and who first decided to burn it to see what color it was?

    Robin's Egg Blue

    I always wanted to work for Crayola, naming the colors. My fave names are: Tickle Me Pink, Purple Mountains Majesty, Asparagus, Macaroni & Cheese, and Timberwolf.

    Creativity Abounds

    I recently found information on why we get great crayon colors although I am not certain how reliable the source was as it was just an open forum on the internet.  It seems that Crayola is a company belonging to an entire umbrella of companies under Hallmark...

    I Was Fascinated By the Names of Crayolas

    HAHA!Looking back it makes me laugh at how silly some of the names where. I think my favs will always be "mac n cheese" yellow and "sweet and sour" red!

    Wintergreen Dream

    When I was a kid, I had a 64-pack of Crayolas with some special edition colors. One of them was Wintergreen Dream--a light, frosty green. I loved the creative, wintry name of that crayon.
