Today, in my photo for the challenge, I have combined the Gray for today and the Green that is tomorrow’s color, since I love this photo of the Windsor Castle Garden Moat so much, and the photo combines both colors so beautifully! This is what you do if you have the proper moat! Turn it into an exquisite garden!
I really would like a job naming crayons for Crayola!
Gray has certainly made the rounds again at Crayola. Since 1956 it was know as Neutral Gray. In the “Discovery” series it was known both as Satellite Gray and Shark Gray. In the Hallmark, “Ugly Duckling” set it was called Ugly Duckling Gray. In the Hallmark, “Tales of the Tooth Fairy” set it was known as Martin the Mouse Gray and in the “Colors of Washington”, DC series it was called Monument Gray and in the “State Colors Collection,” it was Archway Gray, the color for Missouri.
They also had the Grey crayola, but I won’t go into that! I say, never let a good grey go to waste!
Green has been part of the Crayola Collection since 1903, but that color also evolved over the years. In the “So Big” set it was Leap Frog Green and Graphic Green in the “Techno Brite” series. In the “Discovery “series it was known as Martian Green as well as Serpent Green. And in the Hallmark series it was known as Bullfrog Green in the “Ugly Duckling” set and in the “Mouse and Hole” set it was Mole’s Green Boots.
What’s all this talk about The Hallmark Company and Crayola? In 1984 Binney & Smith became a subsidiary of the gift and greeting card seller, Hallmark Cards, of Kansas City, Missouri.
One more! In the “110th Anniversary’ set it was known as Jalapeño. Whew!!! All that kept a colorist busy for awhile!
This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
