|Crayons And Markers|
How are crayons made? What are the eight main colors of crayons and markers?
The two basic ingredients for a crayon are:
- Paraffin wax, stored in heated 17,000 gallon tanks
The mixture is heated until it melts into a liquid. The liquid is poured into a preheated mold full of hundreds of crayon-shaped holes. Cool water is used to cool the mold, allowing the crayon to be made in 3 to 9 minutes.
