At our state conference I received a Cray-Pen from Nasco, and my in-laws gave me some additional supplies at Christmas for my Cray-Pen.
However, I'm just now getting around to testing it out!?!?
ha ha WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME!?!? ha ha
If you aren't familiar with Cray-Pen...this is what it looks like. Crayola has come out with a product that is in the same neighborhood as Cray-Pen, but they do have their differences. I personally like the Cray-Pen better (I have not used Crayola's version to be fair, but have watched several product review videos on YouTube.). Now the Cray-Pen brand has "pucks" of color, but you can use crayons as well! Great way to use those end of the year broken bits!!! Now I originally started on a canvas board surface, and I didn't really like it that well. It seemed almost too slick to stick. When I tried it on paper and cardboard...I LOVED IT! This is a fun product, but I don't know if I'd ever get a class set. It might be good to use with an art club or small group of students. You do need to be careful with the heatedly tip & young artists(or clumsy older artists!). I'm going to have fun using it though, and I might let my kids use it....maybe. ha ha
