Color Your World:120 Days of Crayola; Red

Well as would be expected there is much ado about Red with Crayola! Red has been part of the Crayola Collection since the beginning, 1903. There are several interesting names for Red in other Crayola Collections too such as: Candy Apple Red in the “So Big” set, Lobster Red and Mercury Red in the “Discovery” series, Scarlet Red, found only in the “Scarlet Pimpernel” set, and Crabby Red in the “Colors of Baltimore” series. Lobster Red is the color for Maine in the “State Crayon Collection” and it is known as Ladybug Red in the “110th Anniversary” Collection. But, my all time favorite, for Red, is Alice’s Lipstick in the special “Colors of Binney & Smith” set.

So I’m thinking Alice, who was dead tired, after her night of singing the blues in a Jazz Club in New Orleans, slowly painted on her bright red lipstick before leaving the club and boarding this bright red trolley, to trudge back to her family, who needed every nickel and dime just to eat.

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge

Check out some of the other 150+ challenge participants, it’s amazing what we have done with the Crayola colors!
