How the colours shine and how versatile they are! Whether drawing, painting, generously applying, layering, scraping, and melting colours, Stockmar Wax Crayons promise years of pure drawing pleasure. Outstanding drawing properties (no crumbling, sticking, smudging etc) non-toxic and a sound concept for art education are what make Stockmar Wax Crayons top of the list.
Stockmar wax crayons meet the highest artistic standards. Through the addition of pure beeswax as a binding agent, the light-resistant pigments display their purity and full brilliance. Because they are mixed with wax, the colours are able to be used in a wide range of interesting colouring techniques - more than any other colouring material. The natural transparency of the wax and the lack of additives result in a high degree of opacity like that of watercolours.
Stockmar and Safety
The high quality of Stockmar products is inspected constantly - also with regard to the environment and health. As a result, they have been awarded the German "spiel gut" ("good play") seal of approval, the European "CE" certificate and the American "AP NONTOXIC" distinction.
Since Stockmar considers the standard specifications set by certain regulations to be too lax, their own parameters have been established to determine the safety of their products. For example, Stockmar doesn't consider the tests to be rigorous enough that are used to determine the limit for toxic substances in pens, paint and modelling wax, as defined in the EURONORM Din 71. Here the company therefore adheres to the standards specified in the food provision ordinance, which are much stricter than the regulations for the toy industry. In cases where no standards have even been set by the food provision ordinance, Stockmar has established its own parameters. In this way a strict internal quality-control system with more stringent standards has evolved. The Stockmar seal represents these company standards.
Stockmar Wax Crayons or Stockmar Block Crayons?
All drawing techniques that are suitable for wax colours can be used equally well with Wax Crayons or Wax Block Crayons. The blocks are often preferred for small children (age 3 and 4) because they can be held so well in the hand. Applying the wax colour to a surface with the side of a block crayon quickly stimulates artistic creativity. Older children easily learn how to colour surfaces with crayons or how to draw find lines with the edges of block crayons.
For the older child or pre-teen, the artistic possibilities are endless when using a combination of our Stockmar wax crayons and block crayons.
Price is for a box of twelve (12) Stockmar wax crayons. Made in Germany.
