Product Review: Cray-Pen

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
