Wee Find: Dot Musee and Flower Crayons
Top of my Christmas present recommendations is this genius set of Dot Musee Crayons from the amazing online design store, Mycuppatea. Made in Japan, each crayon represents a different painting by Claude Monet:
1. Sunset in Venice (1908)
2. Iris Bed in Monet’s Garden (1900)
3. Waterlily Pond – Green Harmony (1899)
4. Water Lilies (or Nympheas) (1907)
5. Rue Saint-Denis on the National Holiday (1878)
6. Haystacks (1891)
My Cuppa Tea also stocks the rather pretty dot flower crayon set, which explores a range of floral themes. While each Dot Musee crayon is like an tiny Impressionist pointillism artwork itself, each Dot Flower crayon is like a miniature meadow of wildflowers.
I love that these crayons can be used in different ways: turn the crayon on its end to work with one concentrated colour, or use the entire pointillist palette to create a unique fusion of colour.
Both sets of crayons are amazing value at $22 each, and would make an original gift for just about anyone, from kids to grown-ups. They’re especially good for that tricky person to buy for, who seems to have everything. And how pleased would you be to unwrap a set of these beautiful crayons in the office Kris Kringle?
