Alright.... i asked this question last night, but i'm going to be a bit more clear this time. My Language teacher is doing a big unit on "stuff",(What happens to all of the stuff on earth). My job in this project is to find the extraction of a crayon. So the ingrediants and where they are extracted. So i went to Crayola and found out that the two main ingredieants are Pigment and
Paraffin wax. Now that's great, but i'm having trouble finding where exactly they can be extracted. Could somebody please help me?
Thanks, oh and sorry about my spelling.
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. I'm not sure what exactly you need in the way of "extraction of a crayon" but h opefully the following will help you. If it doesn 't is there a "contact us" on the Crayola website so that you might ask them?

You can, of course, melt down the crayons but why would you?
Paraffin wax is made from petroleum. Pigments are made from different chemicals, such as sulfur. Check these sites for more information.
