Recently we found a wonderful pin on Pinterest that our followers loved too–an editorial photo of a dozen shades of crayons all labeled flesh. Awesome!
We’ve been actively trying to track down the creator of the photo (any help is welcome). And it’s not just a pic: we’re delighted to see that you can indeed buy fleshtone crayons from Crayola now. Gone are the days of one-skin-fits-all, icky peachy-orange.
Now, it’s not like they’re perfect–I have yet to see a snow-white person who wasn’t made up for kabuki theater, and I have yet to see a shiny licorice-black person, either. But I
think kids (and grownups!) will be excited about the variety, with eight shades ranging
from apricot to sepia and mahogany, representing a heck of a lot more of the world.
