Set of 10 Botanical Crayons by
The botanical crayons
are non-toxic crayons, that are made in small batches and are carved by hand in the Garraf region of Spain.
Each crayon is unique in its colour and shape. They come with a roll-up canvas case and a small card with batch number and explanation on which plants and minerals were used to produce their colour.
Up to 40% of the pigment used is foraged and processed by Clara somewhere between the Pyrenees and her home in the Garraf.
Made using beeswax, carnauba wax, soy wax and natural plant and mineral pigments.
Care instructions: The pigments used in the crayons are light sensitive and will change over time. Please store them in a cool and dark place when not using them to help preserve their depth of colour. The botanical crayons do break (as all crayons do!) so handle with care. You can melt them down using a “Bain Marie” and pouring them into a silicone mould.
Copito is a project by Clara Infante, a natural dyer and multidisciplinary maker and artist based near Barcelona, Spain. The botanical crayons are an exploration with plant and earth pigments.
