The discussion has been on washable Crayola tempera, but I would like to make
a point for Crayola acrylics (now called their "Masterpiece Collection"). I
use it with my students because for one of the first projects the Art II

year of lots of use. A couple have been on stools for three years and still
look good.

I find Crayola's price attractive and use it the rest of the year for the
remainder of their acrylic projects with good results. It stands heads above
the Chromacryl I used to order. Has Chromacryl ever come up with a half decent
