From Germany, these Nawaro wax crayons are made with children in mind – their shape and natural, non-toxic materials provide the perfect tool for little hands that are trying to master the basic skills of creating masterpieces. The thicker shape of the crayon and the make up of the wax crayons mean that little hands are able to hold them more easily and produce beautiful colours on the page with little effort. The shorter ‘wax gnomes’ are great for first crayons and the standard sized wax crayons are great for older children (and adults). The colours glide onto the page easily and with more pressure, a more brilliant colour is achieved. You can even layer colours on top of each other to produce a wider variety of colours and create different textures that add depth to your art pieces. Unlike a lot of other brands of wax crayons that use a high percentage of paraffin wax (a petroleum oil derivative), Nawaro make their crayons with stearin derived from palm oil which has been harvested by selected local smallholders who cultivate their palm trees organically and sustainably. This conserves the habitat of endangered species.
