Gray Matter

 Crayola Box Chronicles- wk 6  This week’s out of the box color is Gray. Gray has become one of the most universal colors in the Crayola box, next to of course, the reigning color of black. This neutralizing blend of black and ivory gives a lighter play of color, which has become the next best option when substituting for a darker alternative.
