Crayola Crayons

Remember that crayon?
The cornflower blue crayon?
Remember how it was kind of translucent on the coloring page?
It was different from the other crayons.
I pressed that cornflower blue crayon so hard when I colored.
I wanted it to look like the other crayons.
But it never did.
My technique just made wax crumbs on my picture.

That was before I understood the beauty of translucence.
Now I know.
Cornflower blue earrings.
Luminescent in their translucence.
