How are Crayola Crayons manufactured and what are the basic ingredients?

The basic ingredients contained in Crayola Crayons are paraffin wax and color pigment. The ingredients are the same for all Crayola Crayon colors, with some modifications in special effects crayons. The paraffin wax is melted and mixed with pre-measured amounts of color pigments, using either individual color pigments or mixing the pigments to produce the many colors of Crayola Crayons. The hot wax mixture is poured into molding machines. In about four to seven minutes, the crayons cool and become solid. The Crayola Crayon manufacturing process can be viewed by clicking here.
