Do you offer helpful tips for using the Crayola Paint Maker

Create your own custom washable paints in minutes following these tips. Each colour square includes five perforated strips. Remove the plastic backing from the paint strips by bending on the perforated line. Follow the Colour Mixing Guide to formulate your paint. Only use a total of 5 small strips for any colour you mix. Fill paint pots with base paint to the fill line, but don’t overfill. Turn the crank faster to mix the paint more quickly. It can take up to a minute for paint to thoroughly mix. Only turn in one direction. If strips don’t completely dissolve in 60 seconds, add a small amount of base paint. If the crank gets stuck and won’t turn, gently lift the paint pot mixer up and down from the back of the unit to release the gears. For additional assistance or troubleshooting, please contact 800-CRAYOLA (8002729652), Monday through Friday 9am until 4 pm EST.

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 Cray​ola​.com web site at our history.
