HI, I've been working with the new soy crayons too. And like Marsha I find they
work very nicely-especially for batiking - no fumes!!! The guy from the Prang Co.
told me they were completely non-toxic. They are the first crayons to go up in
space! They were developed by 3 Purdue students as part of a contest by The
Soybean Council.
