Desert Sand was added to the Crayola line in 1998. In the “State Crayon Collection” it is known as Tater Tan, the color for Idaho.

In 1908 Binney & Smith redesigned their 8-color assortment to use the “Gold Medal” label and design. They also introduced their Rainbow line of crayons and Spectra, a pastel crayon line.

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

“Almond” is a shade of brown that is 14% saturated and 94% bright.  Crayola issued this color in 1998 under the name “Almond” and is currently available in the 120 pack of crayons.  Sherwin Williams, the paint company, offers a paint called, “Intricate Ivory” which is 99% similar to “Almond.”

Personally, when I think of “Almond” I think of sand and the desert! Or a dessert! How about almond biscotti with almond colored coffee? This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
