Abstract: This presentation explores the history, composition, and visual characteristics of colored pencils and crayons with an emphasis on methods of identification. An experiment evaluating the reliability of a previously developed spot test was carried out, and specific recommendations for its future use are made. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was used to analyze modern crayon and colored pencil reference materials in order to batter explain the results of the experiment, and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was used to develop anew, minimally invasive approach to differentiating between crayons and colored pencils.
