Big Box of Crayons

My Daughter got the biggest box of crayons I’ve ever seen… This case has everything! Crayons, Pencils, Markers, Water Colors, Oil Pastels, Glut, Scissors and more! I can’t wait to see what she creates from this set!

Also, I’ve made a few changes to the theme around here that I think highlights the photos a bit more…. Would love to hear any feedback positively or negatively, thanks in advance!

This image is almost straight out of the camera I did bump the contrast a bit with the Tonal Contrast effect in Perfect Photo Effects 8, and adjusted the white balance in Aperture.

    I have long been fascinated by Crayons–one of the most versatile and inexpensive art materials—used by professionals at all levels as well as children everywhere. You can do many, many things with Crayons. Remind Chuck to tell you about the Binney and Smith bashes at the National Art Educator conventions! —Sally Carter

      Hi Sally!, Yes their versatility is amazing… did you know that 1 crayon will burn a flame for 30 minutes? Could be used in emergency situations… I’ll ask Chuck about the Binney and Smith bashes…

        Hi Doug— You can also melt them down and paint with them. It’s called encaustic. I used to spend a whole class with students talking about what you can do with crayons because they are the most available art materials in schools. Students loved it. Thanks for your beautiful photography. We always look forward to seeing them. –Sally

          Thanks for looking Sally! We’ve experienced melted Crayons! but not in an artistic way! 🙂

            HA! You must mean like melted crayons in the dryer, on car seats, etc. !! Look at it as memory-making.
