List of Crayola colored pencil colors

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Crayola manufactures several different types of colored pencils. The most popular one is the standard sharpenable wood-shafted pencil, which also offers the widest range of available colors. A smaller and slightly different range of colors is available in mechanical pencil format as part of their "Twistable" product line.

Both formats have a certain subset of "Erasable" colors. Although the default colored pencils are not completely indelible, their markings have a slightly waxy texture that tends to smear and thin out rather than truly erasing.

There are also two types of multicolored pencils: "Heads 'n Tails" and "True to Life".

All Crayola colored pencils are manufactured by Brazilian Faber-Castell plants in São Carlos and are the same colors of Brazilian packages.

Twistables[edit]

Crayola also manufactures mechanical pencils with colored leads as part of its "Twistables" line, which also includes crayons and markers with a similar screw-based mechanical feed. Crayola does not currently offer refill cores for any of its Twistables products, so the pencils are intended to be discarded when empty. The external packaging of each set shows color swatches labeled by name, but the color names are not imprinted on the individual pencils themselves. They are available in 12, (vibrant set) 18, and 30 packs, and an erasable 12 pack. The 12 pack was released in 1998, the 18 pack was released in 2008, and the 30 pack was released in 2009.

The 30 pack contains 11 of the colors in the standard 12 pack; sky-blue is not included. It also contains all of colors of the 18 pack (vibrant set) with the exception of the three fluorescent colors (the 18 set has four colors from the 12 pack). The remaining eight colors (there are six colors that are in both sets) are unique to the 30 pack.

Some of the Twistables pencil color names do not appear among the standard colored pencils as shown above. The colors are blue-violet, green-yellow, apricot, asparagus, carnation pink, and wisteria.

All color values are approximate.

The "Vibrant Set" 18-pack that released in 2008 has relatively little duplication of the basic 12-pack colors; The colors from the 12 pack are italicized:

12 pack standard set 18 pack vibrant set

Erasable colors[edit]

Crayola's erasable colors are available in 8-packs, 12-packs, or 24-packs of standard sharpenable pencils. There is also a 12-pack of "Erasable Twistables" pencils, which lists the same twelve colors as the standard "Twistables" pencils.

Specialty multicolor pencils[edit]

"True to Life" pencils are limited to eight colors (or rather, eight color titles such as "Maui Sunset" and "Amazon Rainforest"), in which each pencil has a single tricolor lead. As the color titles are identical to those of the "True to Life" tricolored crayons, their color range is presumably similar or identical.

Similarly, the 8-pack of double-sided "Heads 'n Tails" pencils, in which the two sides of each pencil have two different tints or shades of the same hue, should resemble the color range of the corresponding crayons.
