Do you offer helpful hints for using the Sprinkle Art Shaker
Our experts recommend the following tips for best results. Secure the adjustable paper holders (purple straps) to the outer pins to keep your design sheets in place. A little goes a long way! Squeeze glue only on the gray lines where you want colour to go. Once you apply glue, don’t wait too long to start shaking! You want the glue to capture as many sprinkles as possible. After unused sprinkles are in the bottle, lift the bottle out diagonally for easy removal. Allow your creation to completely dry before showing it off. To help eliminate static electricity, spray Windex on a paper towel and wipe the inside and bottom of the unit. Be sure the unit is completely dry before adding paper. Repeat as needed. Looking for Refills? Need more glue? Use Crayola School Glue or Crayola Colour Glue. Ran out of design sheets? Use any paper that fits the unit such as magazine pages, printer paper and colouring pages! Need more helpful hints?

In 1900, prior to the introduction of Crayola Crayons, we produced black marking crayons. Today these are known as Staonal brand Marking Crayons and are used in many industrial settings. These crayons were created with dry carbon black and different waxes. The first box of Crayola Crayons was produced in 1903 as an 8 count box. It sold for a nickel and contained the colours red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown and black. We provide extensive information about Crayola and our products on our sites. A history timeline can be found on the Crayola.com web site at our history.
In 1903, we introduced the first box of 8 Crayola Crayons and sold them for a nickel. Included were the same 8 colours that are found in an 8‑pack today: red yellow blue green orange brown violet (purple) black.
In 1958 the box of 64 CRAYOLA Crayons was introduced. It was the first package to include a built-in sharpener design. We continue to manufacture this package design today in the 64 and 96 count Crayola Crayon package.
In 1993 we conducted a poll to find out the most popular colours in America. Blue was voted the most popular CRAYOLA Crayon colour. Rounding the top ten were red, violet, green, carnation pink, black, turquoise blue, blue green, periwinkle and magenta. In 2000, we did another Crayola Colour Census, and blue again reigns as number one!
