Erasable Colored Pencils: What's Inside the Box

The Crayola Erasable colored pencils are the first time Crayola made colored pencils erasable.  I bought the Crayola Erasable Pencils way back in the day, in 2002.  I recently bought some more this last year to see the difference in the pencils. The box and pencil design have changed.  The pencils are more plain now, they removed the swirly lines from the pencils.  I think it's a great idea to have Erasable Colored Pencils.  It can really help when coloring and when things are colored on, which happens  a lot around here.

There are many patents associated with these pencils. It is crazy how much science goes into making art supplies, especially erasable art supplies.  Basically the pencils leads are "free of wax or derivatives of wax" that would "resist removal from paper fibers". A lubricant is added to the pencil to make the pencil lead not as hard and easier to lay down on the paper. Crayola also invented a new eraser that would not hurt the surface of the paper.
