Crayola Drops Dandelion Yellow!

Fri Mar 31, 2017 3:04 pm

In shocking news, Crayola has dropped Dandelion Yellow from its summer collection.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/3 ... -a-new-one
The company announced that it would be removing the gold-tinged dandelion stick from its boxes on Friday, to make way for a new one. It also ties in with National Crayon Day in America.

It's only the third time in Crayola's history that it has retired one or more of its colours, and the first time it's taking one out of its box of 24.


Which is your favourite Crayola colour and which do you think should have been dropped rather than Dandelion Yellow?

They could introduce areola pink in a charity pack for breast cancer.

Crayola has stated the replacement will be in the blue family, but the exact color has not yet been revealed yet.

Fairy Tale is a Pantone color, so it would probably be sold under a different name if Crayola were to introduce that color.

Again, Crayola has already stated the replacement for Dandelion will be in the blue family.

Any idea if it will be darker or lighter blue? Personally, I do not fancy those blue-ish-into-violet colours. Hopefully something lighter.

My favorite color has been Indigo. That deep blue is very appealing (even though it's not true indigo).

A crayon they can do away with:
1. White
2. Olive
3. Mac N Cheese
4. Tickle-Me Pink
5. Cotton Candy pink
6. Any crayon with a silly name
7. The double color combinations like yellow-green and green-yellow, red-orange and orange-red...

Orange-Red was dropped in 1990, along with Orange-Yellow, Green-Blue, and Violet-Blue. Red-Orange, Yellow-Orange, Yellow-Green, Green-Yellow, Blue-Green, Blue-Violet, Red-Violet, and Violet-Red are the ones that still survive today.

Those color names technically aren't by IZOD but by Pantone, and IZOD is not alone among fashion companies in using Pantone color names.

For White, all you need is some black construction paper and then it will be visible.

Or any other color paper, or something you've already done in one color but want to place white on.

I mean, why do they make white colored pencils or white art paint...

I'm not an artist by any means, but I can easily see these use for white.

And olive is just another color. Not sure why it's not needed whereas others are...

As for olive, there could be some potential uses for it, including drawing a picture of olives.

I know that all olives aren't the same color, but when I see "olive" as a color, I think of a pretty specific color that I would think most people would also think of.

Haven't you heard that IZOD has a new line of Olive colored polo shirts?

There's Olive green, forest olive, olive olive, virgin olive, and war uniform olive.

Just curious...how many of you are still using crayons? If so, do you do the adult colouring books, or use crayons in your art?

SmithAir747

I think the last time I used crayons was in 7th grade, when I switched over to colored pencils. My mom refused to buy new crayons at the beginning of every school year because the same colors would left unused and there would still be enough crayon from the previous year to be reused. She would pool all remaining crayons (both my sister's and mine) and THAT was our new crayon box. Kinda tough trying to color with blue and then having to switch to a different shade of blue. One year it got so bad that I demanded she buy me new crayons or else I'd fail an assignment (what are you supposed to do when the only colors left are brown, pink, olive green, black, etc.? (ie. not your typical colors))

As for the adult coloring books...don't understand their appeal to people. That just shows I don't have any talent when it comes to colors or art.

I know people are messing with him, but come on, now. I cannot possibly be the only person who thinks of a very specific shade of green when someone I see "olive" as it relates to a color.

Yes, olives come in different colors. But "olive green" (or just simply "olive") is a very common way to refer to a particular shade of green.
