Index card a day Nos. 5 and 6

My next two index cards are all about the crayons.

I decided to play with the neon/fluorescent colors first. When I was younger, I recall there only being one or two of these colors. Not so much the case now.

I found the neon/fluorescent crayons were quite waxy with very little color no matter how hard I pressed. Have the neon/fluorescent crayons always been this way? I seem to think maybe they were and maybe this is why they never lasted as long as the other crayons.

After I got my coloring on, I set the crayon with heat so that I could draw on it with a marker. Using heat melts the wax and only leaves the color behind on the paper. Makes it much easier to work with.

Tell me....How can you NOT love the crayons?
