Do you offer helpful tips for using the Crayola Color Wonder Mess Free Airbrush?

We’d like to help get your Color Wonder Mess Free Airbrush working! We have some troubleshooting tips to share with you.

1) Insert new, fresh batteries in the unit.

2) Set the unit on a flat surface.

3) Push the on/​off switch located on top of the unit base to the 1” and away from 0”.

4) Look at the bottom of the handle or spray unit, and you will see a white cone. Touch the tip of the cone to the Color Wonder paper and press the yellow button. At this time, you will hear the motor turn on. This is how the hand unit must be held for the Airbrush to operate. This feature is to ensure the Airbrush will only spray downward and on the special paper.

5) When inserting the marker, listen for it to click in place. Give it a slight turn to the right and press the yellow button to activate the spray.

6) The unit will shut off if the nozzle is tilted up or to the left and right. It will also shut off if the nozzle is moved too quickly. It is important to only spray downward on the paper.

Throughout Crayola’s history, several crayon colours have been retired, marking significant moments in the evolution of our vibrant palette. 

1990
For the first time in Crayola history eight colours were retired and placed in the Crayola Hall of Fame: blue gray, green blue, lemon yellow, maize, orange red, orange yellow, raw umber, and violet blue. 

Eight new colours were added: cerulean, dandelion, fuchsia, jungle green, royal purple, teal blue, vivid tangerine, and wild strawberry. 

2003
Celebrating a century of bringing colour to the world, Crayola introduced four new colours named by Crayola fans! To make room for the new hues, we bid farewell to blizzard blue, magic mint, mulberry, and teal blue. 

The four new colours that were introduced are: inchworm, jazzberry jam, mango tango, and wild blue yonder. 

Kudos to our hue heroes – the consumers who voted in the Save the Shade” campaign, ensuring burnt sienna stayed in the pack. 

2017
To mark National Crayon Day on March 31st, we announced Dandelion was leaving the pack. To honor this iconic colour, we sent Dandelion on a retirement tour to his favorite places. His replacement, Bluetiful, was announced on May 52017.

We have some tips to help you get the very best results while cleaning your Scribble Scrubbie Pets. For Best Results: Gently scrub your pet under running water after play and let it air dry before storing. Use the scrub brush to help release marker inks from the tiny fibers (flocking). DO NOT PLACE SCRIBBLE SCRUBBIE PETS IN A DISHWASHER. Let your pets dry before a second use. Colouring on damp pets allows the ink to wick under the fibers, making the colour harder to rinse away. Still See Colour on Your Pet After Scrubbing Under Running Water? If colours have been left on your pet for several days, you may need to soak it in water for 20-minutes. If the stain persists after a 20-minute soak, soak overnight. Always Keep in Mind: The fresher the colour, the easier to clean. Soap has little effect when cleaning your pets. Fresh colouring typically requires a rinse under the faucet, while concentrated colouring may require light scrubbing under a faucet or an overnight soak. Follow the tips below. If you have additional questions, we would love to hear from you! Feel free to call or text us at 18002729652 weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM Eastern Time. If you would prefer to send us an email, visit our contact us page.

The basic ingredients contained in Crayola Crayons are paraffin wax and colour pigment. The ingredients are the same for all Crayola Crayon colours, with some modifications in special effects crayons. We manufacture almost 3 billion crayons each year. The paraffin wax is melted and mixed together with pre-measured amounts of colour pigments. We purchase the powder pigments and either use individual colours or mix the pigments to produce the many colours of Crayola Crayons. The hot wax mixture is poured into moulding machines. In about four to seven minutes, the crayons cool and become solid. The crayon manufacturing process can be viewed on our web site by visiting http://​www​.cray​ola​.com/​f​a​c​t​o​r​y​/​p​r​e​v​i​e​w​/​f​a​c​t​o​r​y​_​f​l​o​o​r​/​c​r​a​y​o​n​_​m​f​g.htm. There is a book available titled Crayons From Start To Finish”. The book offers a behind-the-scenes look at the whole manufacturing process. To obtain this book, please visit your local library. As a further reference, the ISBN is 1567113907 and the author of the book is Samuel G. Woods.
