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.

Popular Questions

While the marker barrel and cap are recyclable, not all parts of the marker are. Because the marker components are securely sealed during the manufacturing process, we don’t recommend trying to remove the marker nib and reservoir. The marker caps can be recycled at facilities that accept #5 plastic.

Crayola Crayons are made primarily from paraffin wax and colour pigment. Paraffin wax is made especially for Crayola by companies who extract it from products like wood and coal. Pigments come from various sources. They can be natural or man made substances. Pigments can be found in the earth, minerals and/​or made in laboratories. These raw materials are purchased from outside suppliers and are stored in our warehouse awaiting production. All of our raw materials are delivered by truck with the exception of paraffin wax, which is delivered in railroad cars. Further information is considered proprietary. If you need more information, please call us at (800) 2729652 weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM Eastern Time. A representative will be happy to assist you.

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.

All CRAYOLA Crayons are made from paraffin wax and colour pigment. The crayons vary slightly in weight due to the amount of colour pigment added to produce a particular colour as well as the density of the powder pigment itself. Certain colour pigments are very light while other pigments are very dense. It would not be accurate, however, to say that all dark crayons are heavier than other colours. You can test this by doing an experiment to see which Crayola Crayons float and which will sink.
