Do you offer helpful tips for using the Crayola Digital Light Designer?

We hope the following tips help you enjoy hours of fun with the Digital Light Designer! Troubleshooting tips if the unit is not functioning as expected: 1. Do you have new, fresh batteries and are they installed correctly? 2. Is the unit being used on a flat, hard, level surface? The switch underneath must be engaged. 3. Does the Red LED on the wand light up? If not, check the batteries are in properly. (new) 4. If you cannot get past the main menu screen, turn off nearby lights in the room or move out of direct sunlight. Strong outside or indoor light can interfere with the operation of the unit. 5. The wand is similar to a remote. It needs to be aimed rather than held like a pencil. It works from about an inch away, when with the light beam on or tap wand directly on the dome surface. 6. When the unit is turned on, the unit cycles the colours line by line. You can interrupt this process by tapping on the dome. If you don’t see the coloured lines, something in the room is causing interference. 7. You cannot draw on the top of the dome, only the sides. 8. To rotate the displayed image, hold the stylus on the dock (the 2 white lines near the base). The lines will turn red, then blue. When the lines turn blue, move the stylus along the dock to rotate the images around the Digital Light-Designer. 9. There are 3 menus available, however, only 2 appear at first. 10. Two wands CANNOT be used at the same time. Two wands cause issues similar to having lights on in the room. 11. What type of adapter are you using? USE ONLY AC ADAPTERS WITH MATCHING SPECIFICATIONS. AC ADAPTER SPECIFICATIONS INPUT: 100 – 120VAC, 50 – 60 Hz, 0.8A OUTPUT: 6.0VDC, 2.0A, 12.0W/VA

Crayola did not invent the crayon. Records show that Europe was the birthplace of the modern” crayon. The first crayons were made from a mixture of charcoal and oil. Later, powdered pigments of various hues replaced the charcoal. It was discovered that substituting wax for the oil in the mixture made the sticks sturdier and easier to handle. Crayola Crayons were invented by Binney & Smith in 1902 and first offered for sale in 1903. Alice (Stead) Binney, a school teacher and wife of co-founder Edwin Binney, suggested the company manufacture an inexpensive alternative to imported crayons of that era. The trade name Crayola was coined by Mrs. Edwin Binney who joined the French word craie,” meaning stick of chalk and ola” from the word oleaginous,” meaning oily. Crayola Crayons are made primarily from paraffin wax and colour pigment. The Crayola brand celebrated its 100th anniversary during 2003 and today we manufacture over 3 billion crayons each year.

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® Model Magic® can be sealed once your piece is completely dry. It generally takes 24 hours to dry to the touch; 72 hours to dry completely. Once dry, an acrylic varnish can be used. We recommend testing its compatibility before applying it to a finished piece. Sealing your work will not waterproof it. Exposure to water and outdoor elements will have a negative effect on Model Magic, so we recommend displaying your sculpture indoors.
