I've just discovered a fab new brand of crayons by Bambino. When I'm creating colouring sheets I always love trying out new art materials I can use in photos and workshops. I've pretty much avoided crayons, particularly wax as I dislike the texture and mess, then I spied these new clay formula crayons and I just had to try them. I've used them to colour in an Afternoon Tea themed colouring sheet I designed last year.
Bambino are unlike crayons I've used before, I often colour in and draw with my 2 year old nephew. Even he has moved on from wax crayons as I think he found them frustrating to use. The wax kind certainly don't have a nice texture and depending on the brand they can often be faded and dull. I came across the Bambino crayons on Instagram and ordered a box out of curiosity, I'm so pleased I did! Firstly I love the tiny animal designs on the wrappers, they are so cute and kids will always notice and appreciate little details like those (I know my nephew will).
