Steps to Making Crayons

                    1) First hot paraffin (wax) arrives at the crayon making plant.

                    2) Then, heated machines mix the paraffin (wax) with pigment, or color.

                    3) The hot, waxy liquid is poured into crayon molding tables.

                    4) Cold water travels through tubes in the molds to cool the wax down.

                    5) A scraper takes away all of the extra cool wax.

                    6) The crayons are pulled out of the machines and inspected.

                    7) Finally, a machine adds labels and crayons are shipped to stores.
