    Being set on fire is an emergency, in my book.

    Does the flame burn in the colour of the crayon?

    • Jose Alvaro Hernandez

      It’s just colored wax so no, it’d burn just like the one in the pict here. 😛

      • FizzPop

        The reason I asked was because the flame in the picture looks darker than most, similar to the wax of the crayon.

        • The People’s Poet

          No, the chemicals in the wax make the flame weaker than that of a flame made from processed oils and gases.

          Yep, what dude that went der said. XD

      Just add some extra ingredients and vola!

      Carmine (deeper red): lithium chloride

      Red: strontium chloride

      Orange: calcium chloride, found in household products used for absorbing moisture or dehumidifying.

      Yellow: sodium chloride, which is table salt

      Lime Green: boric acid, which can be found in the pharmacy sections of some stores for use as a disinfectant.

      Green: copper sulfate, found in products used for killing plant roots.

      Blue: copper chloride

      Purple: potassium chloride, which is the main ingredient in non-sodium salt substitutes.

        You may also wish to put in your note that burning these in a non ventilated area can be EXTREMELY hazardous to your health.

          Nah, some things children just have to work out for themselves. After 3 or 4 of them succumb to the fumes the remaining ones should clue on.
