Announcement   Tinta Crayons are safe, natural and environmentally-friendly crayons, moulded into shapes to encourage imaginative play.

We (the 'two Marias' - Maria F and Maria P) started Tinta Crayons in 2015 after discovering that crayons on sale in Australia contained asbestos. We wanted to create a safe, natural alternative and so Tinta Crayons was born.

Made from Australian beeswax and organic plant waxes, our crayons are safe for children to use and won’t melt in hot little hands. They draw smoothly and impart beautiful colour onto the page. The shapes, ranging from dinosaurs and fairies to 3D crayon jigsaws, inspire children to play as well as draw.

Each Tinta Crayon is handmade from scratch in Melbourne. We don’t use paraffin, palm or soy waxes because of their destructive ecological impact and our colours are free from asbestos and heavy metals. As part of our commitment to sustainability, all of our packaging material is sourced locally and our crayons are packed by Brite Services, an organisation that provides employment for adults with disabilities.

  • About

    100% natural wax crayons, handmade in Australia!

    I'm a Melbourne mum who wanted to find non-toxic crayons in fun shapes. I couldn't find any fun crayons that were made entirely from natural waxes and non-toxic pigments, so I decided to create my own.

    I decided that I wanted to use sustainable waxes and colours that are safe for a child to put in their mouth. No paraffin (a by-product of petroleum production), soy or palm waxes are used in Tinta crayons. The pigments that I use are carefully selected to ensure that they are non-toxic and free from heavy metals and asbestos.

    Every Tinta crayon is made from scratch and hand-poured in Melbourne, Australia. I've tested lots of different recipes and think I've found the perfect mix of natural waxes and non-toxic pigments to produce beautiful sustainable crayons. These fun little shapes will not melt in hot little hands and impart beautiful colour onto the page.
