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 offers an innovative program called ColorCycle that converts old markers into energy as well as wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles. The process repurposes the entire marker, regardless of the different kinds of plastics or how they are assembled. You can learn more about this program and all of Crayola’s other environmental initiatives at www​.cray​ola​.com/​c​o​l​o​r​cycle.

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.

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. For information on other science experiments, be sure to visit http://www.crayola.com/colourcensus/science/index.cfm”>http://www.crayola.com/colourcensus/science/index.cfm.

Our experts have a few tips to help your creativity bloom with the Crayola Paper Flower Science Kit. 

For Best Results: 

  • Protect clothing & work surface before starting. 
  • Wipe water and ink spills immediately. 

Cleaning Tips:

  • Rinse and dry all pots, covers, funnels and watering can. 
  • Recap ink bottles and markers. 
  • Wipe away any spills from work surfaces. 

Looking for refills? 

  • Need another bouquet? White coffee filters – they are the perfect alternative to paper petals because they mimic the wicking process of the ink into the paper. 
  • Have left over ink? To make your creativity bloom again, rinse the used cores and tips under running water to clean up as much of the ink as possible. Just be sure to wipe up any ink right away and let the cores and tips dry thoroughly. We’ve found this craft hack works best when the ink is fresh and hasn’t had too much time to set. 

Need more helpful hints? Feel free to call or text us at 18002729652 weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM Eastern Time.
