Complete List of Current Crayola Colored Pencil Colors

Crayola started making colored pencils in 1988, not nearly as long as they have made crayons. Over the course of this time they have made 12 count, 24 count, 36 count, 50 count, 64 count 72 count and finally 100 count boxes. They have made an 8 count Metallic and 8 count Neon or Extreme box also. Some of these colors, but not all have been incorporated into the higher count box sizes.

Crayola also came out with a box of colored pencils called Color Escapes. This pallet was slightly different than the standard colors used in their other boxes. Most noticeable is the color Jade. It is truer to the actual color. Most of the colors are more vibrant in this box. There is the exception with a bunch of peach and apricot colors. I do not know if they were just trying to get to 72, but the colors are very similar and not needed.

  1. Thankyou heaps for the time you spent putting up all the different colours, i found it extremely helpful and loved looking through them all finding more than what i thought they have, love using crayola pencils and now to purchasing all the different shades.

  2. I just bought the 100 different colors box at Walmart. Where can I find a blank swatch chart with the color names that I can color as a reference?

  3. remove Robin's Egg Blue it's not in the Colored Pencils

    1. actually there is in the 64 ct

    2. It is in the 64 pack, but that pack is really odd and unique. The colored pencils are smaller, it doesn't include most of the colors from the 50 pack, and it added Crayola crayon colors, such as Robin's Egg Blue, Dandelion (RIP), Carnation Pink, and Macaroni and Cheese, for some odd reason.

      Most of the new colors from that pack didn't even make it to the other big packs. But I think they are adding them back, slowly but surely. We got Screamin' Green, Periwinkle, Pacific Blue, and Lavender in the new 120 and 150 packs recently, which before were only in the 64 pack.

      Maybe one day we'll get all of the colors from the 64 pack, who knows.

  4. Update the list with the 120 pencil set please.

  5. Hi, the 20 additional colors are :
    Blue Bell, Lobster Red, Dark Mauve, Melon, Outrageous Orange, Forest Green, Asparagus,
    Sea Green, Manatee, Screamin Green, Bluetiful, Dark Blue, Midnight Blue, Periwinkle,
    Ultra Violet, Parrot Pink, Burnt Sienna, Sun Yellow, Atomic Tangerine.

    1. But then Crayola removed Antique Brass, Turquoise, Burnt Sienna, Black, Brown, Light Brown, Jade Green and Unmellow Yellow - They added Cool Mint, Crayellow, Powder Blue, Oatmeal, Eggplant and Lavender to the 150 Set plus the 32 colors from Colors of the World those were Deepest Almond, Extra Deep Golden, Extra Deep Rose, Extra Deep Almond, Very Deep Almond, Deep Golden, Medium Deep Golden, Deep Almond, Very Deep Rose, Deep Rose, Medium Deep Almond, Medium Golden, Medium almond, Medium Deep Rose, Light Medium Almond, Light Medium Rose, Light Almond, Light Rose, Light Medium Golden, Very Light Almond, Light Golden, Very Light Rose, Very Light Golden, Extra Light Almond, Black Hair, Brown Hair, Blonde Hair, Red hair, Brown Hair, Hazel Eyes, Green Eyes and Blue Eyes.

    2. Yes, I believe the 150 pack includes ALL of the Crayola colored pencils colors, including the Colors of the World pack. The missing, or "removed" 8 I believed are renamed, rebranded, or combined as: Black Hair (Black), Brown Hair (Brown), Blonde Hair (Unmellow Yellow), Red Hair (Burnt Sienna), Brown Eyes (Antique Brass), Hazel Eyes (Light Brown), Green Eyes (Jade Green), and Blue Eyes (Turquoise).

      So yeah, all the colors from the 120 pack, plus the new 6 and all 24 Colors of the World (not including the colored eyes and hair since those are the same or combined with 8 other existing colors, I believe) make up the new 150!

      Also, OP is missing "Pacific Blue" from the 120 pack. Hope one day we can get 200 colors!

  6. There are 120 colours now

  7. where's the downloadable chart i was prommised once i signed up????????

    1. Umm. Yeah. This site is informative and I will use it, but you said that if we did this, we would actually get a free colour chart. The chart shown in Pinterest was actually the Prismacolors 150 and it looked to be ordered in an interesting way and it's good business practice to be true to your word if you say that you're going to do something. And equally, it's bad business practice to lure/want people to look at your website by saying you'll provide them with something that you don't provide.

      I only just subscribed now - 3 October 2020 and I've not automatically been sent the free colour chart yet, and you don't end up sending it/holding up your end of the agreement, it's very annoying for people because they feel deceived and - and I can only speak for myself - but I would find it so annoying that I would take the time to unsubscribe to you.

    2. What is your email? Email and I will check out what is happening. You should receive a blank color swatch chart. If you are looking for a filled in one I will be sending that out soon to my subscribers. Thanks!

    3. Can the colors from the 120 set 64 set and the colors of the world set

  8. Why is the hex codes different for the colored pencils than the crayons of the same color name? How were these calculated and/or where was this information sourced from?

    1. I'm not Jenny, so I can't speak for her, BUT if you compare colored pencils to crayons that have the same color name, they're almost never the same color on paper. I'm guessing Jenny colored a swatch on a plain sheet of paper for each color, scanned them in, and used the eyedropper tool in photoshop on the swatch to get the HEX and RGB values - I mean, that's how I'd do it.
      Basically only the really super basic colors - yellow, black, red - appear to be the same color when you compare the colored pencil, crayon, and marker versions of the same name. Asparagus in one medium usually looks a little different from Asparagus of a different medium, for instance.

    2. i have the rgb and hex coding for the colors are way off. ex. red is more like pastel red I have made my colored swatches on card stock and using that to line up the hex & rgb coding to get the right colors I do it manually no eyedropper in photoshop and we need to remember everyone's eyes are different along with every screen we use to look these up online projects these colors slightly different from the true color.

  9. I have not received my color chart blank or otherwise. This is like the 5th time I've tried. Please find a solution to this problem.

  10. Is there a crayola pencil combination chart? I like to color with pencils and find ot hard to choose which color

    1. I just did a blog post and video about color theory. I also posted some color combos for fall. I plan on doing it seasonally and maybe eventually creating one giant post with lots of color combos :)

  11. Well, this and the other pages are very helpful! You've done quite a bit of work, all for free, and I'm sorry some of the comments come across as demanding. I can only thank you for taking a significant chunk of work out of the project I decided I needed to do - namely, making swatches for pencils and crayons and markers and determining their HEX value. Thanks!

  12. They now make a 120 ct box of colored pencils (as of 2018 at least, going by the date on the box), so you will have a bit more to add here.
