Why has my piece of Air-Dry Clay warped? What can I do to prevent this?

Warping occurs when the edges dry more quickly than the inside of the piece. Turning the flat piece(s) periodically; half hour to an hour, will prevent warping. If possible, dry the flat art piece on a rack. The air gets underneath and helps it dry without warping.

If you have additional questions, we would love to hear from you! Feel free to call or text us at 18002729652 on weekdays between 9 AM and 4 PM Eastern Time.

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.

1990 — For the first time in Crayola history eight colours were retired and placed in the Crayola Hall of Fame: maize, lemon yellow, blue gray, raw umber, green blue, orange red, orange yellow, and violet blue. Eight new colours were added: vivid tangerine, jungle green, cerulean, fuchsia, dandelion, teal blue, royal purple, and wild strawberry.

Four new colours were introduced for the next century: inchworm, mango tango, wild blue yonder, and jazzberry jam; Consumers voted to Save the Shade” and saved burnt sienna from retirement.

We do not currently offer a program for recycling broken crayons sent to us by consumers. Because our #1 goal is to provide safe, high quality Crayola products, our raw materials must adhere to high standards and pass strict screening tests. Unfortunately, we would not be able to introduce recycled” crayon wax into our mixtures, and still be able to guarantee the safety and performance of Crayola crayons. For information about crafts involving the use of melted crayons, please visit http://www.crayola.com/things-to-do/how-to-landing/melted-crayons.aspx”>http://www.crayola.com/things-to-do/how-to-landing/melted-crayons.aspx.

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.
