Welcome to the month of rainbows!

I will be your host for the month. I have supplied a huge prompt list. It is all of the Crayola's colors past, current, and discontinued from their various products. There is a huge list with examples of the color here.

You may use the prompt however it speaks to you. If it inspires an emotion or the actual color that is up to you and your muse.

As always one of the great things about [community profile] allbingo is that you are not limited to just fics. You can do whatever strikes your fancy,

Fic, art, icons, videos, pic spams, recs, handcrafts, heck if you want to fill a bingo with decorated pastries that fit the color theme that would be awesome.

I will be making banners for those of you that make a bingo by the last day of April.

Happy creating and any question feel free to poke me.

Public Card

Red Violet Rose Goldenrod Leather Jacket Sasquatch Socks
Booger Buster Tigers Eye Timberwolf Ocean Green Orange Red

You can also make your own card here.

You can use any colors you wish or randomly pick from this list.




I hope everyone has a great time!

Yay!

This looks like fun. I'll make a card.

You're missing Ultramarine and Flesh, by the way. Ultramarine appeared in some of the oldest boxes, but I also remember it from mine. They wish everyone would forget the peach-colored crayons labeled Flesh, which were around a hell of a lot later than the 1960s.

For a group activity, omitting Flesh is probably prudent. I'll be using it in mine because it's a good prompt. Also, I love this version.

Yeah, the multicultural art sets came out after my crayon years. At first they were really hard to find. Now they are ubiquitous. Crayons, colored pencils, markers, construction paper, and clay are all readily available in a lovely range of realistic skin tones.

;) And then in one of my Polychrome Heroics poems, someone asked if there were any CPR mannequins with the exotic skin tones that appear with some superpowers. Not on the open market, yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if Kraken has some.

Vexed is it okay if I go with Midnight Blue's original name of Prussian Blue?

Sorry for the repeat question. I forgot I wasn't logged in. XD

This will be too much fun (so many names I've never seen and can't even imagine the color they'd be)

my card http://cornerofmadness.dreamwidth.org/2058471.html

Yes...

Also if you get out on the pages by crayon collectors, some of them not only have pictures but talk about the subtle variations between colors. There are a lot more names than appear on the common lists. Some of that stuff is seriously old and rare.

Hey thanks! I do want to see! Yeah I doubt any of these will be actual colors once I'm done with them.

This is an interesting set of prompts! I'm going to try my hand at the public card.

Okay, you had me at Booger Buster, I think, but that really is a cool list. I'll take a stab at the public card. Thank you for providing it!
