No typo here: bluetiful is the latest edition to Crayola’s classic box of 24 crayons, replacing the 27-year-old Dandelion.

This colour addition is based on a new pigment discovered in 2009 by scientists at Oregon State University.  This first new blue pigment to be found in 200 years consists of yttrium, indium and manganese oxides, resulting in the official pigment name of  “YInMn” (pronounced yin-min).

  1. Yikes is the Colour Challenge back? Been far too distracted to get my head around new challenges this month – but you have inspired me to get thinking this afternoon 🙂
