Creatology Jumbo Crayons vs. Crayola Jumbo Crayons

  • Creatology Jumbo Crayons 

Let me begin by saying that there is nothing better for small children, than jumbo crayons. When drawing, small children tend to break thinner crayons very easily since they put a lot of pressure on each crayon when drawing. These crayons are very sturdy and rich in color. The package comes with 8 crayons for children ages 3 and up. The cost is $3.99 and you can also find these at Michaels! When experimenting with these, I found that they don’t blend as easily as the Crayola ones. However, they still have a very nice pigmentation which makes your drawings still look beautiful even on colorful paper!

Safety Concerns:

-These crayons are recommended for the use of children ages 3 and up.
-Contains paraffin wax, stearic acid and pigments

  • Crayola Jumbo Crayons

As opposed to the Creatology Jumbo Crayons, the Crayola Crayons cost $4.99. The box also comes with 8 different colored crayons and it also works perfectly for small children. What I loved about the Crayola crayons, is that the blending is a lot smoother than the Creatology ones. The texture feels a lot creamier and it allows your finished drawing to look much nicer.

Safety Concerns:

-Recommended for ages 3 years and up
-Non toxic

Let’s compare our two brands and see how these look when blending different colors.

Creatology:

Pros:

-Beautiful Pigmentation
-Clean finish
-Cheaper

Cons:

-Not as creamy
-Blending is not as good

Crayola:

Pros:

-Best blending
-Creamier texture

Cons:

-Leaves messy residue

How do these brands work with mixed media?

Creatology:

Although both of these work very well when creating artwork using mixed media, Creatology Crayons have a much nicer finished when incorporating materials such as a white-uni-ball pen over black colored crayons.

Crayola:

Crayola blends smoothly over the purple marker we chose for this experiment. However, it is very hard to use other materials over the Crayola Crayons.

How do these brands do over colorful paper? Lets compare the pigmentation of these crayons over some colorful cardstock paper.

Creatology:

Surprisingly, these crayons feel very smooth over cardstock paper. On all of our previous experiments, we used regular white paper in which they fell a bit more rough. These crayons keep a higher pigmentation level when drawing on colorful cardstock paper.

Crayola:

I’m not a fan of how much residue these crayons leave. It is harder to have a cleaner finish to your artwork. These crayons work much better on a regular white sheet of paper as opposed to colorful cardstock.

Now, lets see how our Narwhal Whale drawings look!
