The pen colors, starting at 0 and ending at 100, at pen size 10 and pen shade 50.

Pen color is a value given to all sprites. The default is 66.66 (blue),[1] but can be changed with the pen color blocks.

Use in Scripts

Pen color can be used in animation, drawing, and much more. To change it, you raise or lower the value. There are 100 possible integer hues,[2] with values from 0 to 99, but decimal values can be used to specify the color more precisely. It starts and ends at red, with the general order of a rainbow.

Another block is wanted by many Scratchers, a reporter block called "pen color" that reports the numerical value of the color.[3][4] This block could look like this: (pen color:: pen)
