The First Look at Crayola’s New Blue

 

Crayola has unveiled its new blue crayon, about a month after it retired the color Dandelion from its 24-count crayon box set. The art supply company on Friday gave fans their first look at the new and yet-to-be-named crayon, which will officially be part of the pack later this year or early next year and replaces Dandelion — a mustard-yellow color that was part of the Crayola family for almost three decades. The color blue has come out on top as fans’ favorite color. The new blue was inspired by the accidental discovery of the pigment by chemists at Oregon State University in 2009. That vibrant color is known as YInMn Blue, but Crayola is seeking the public’s help in crafting its own name for the new crayon. suggestions will be accepted until June 2, then the five best name recommendations will be released on July 1…… Ed
