For crayon the cleaning gurus recommend scraping off as much excess as
possible, then placing absorbent paper towels on top and pressing a warm
iron over it. Don't rub, and don't leave the iron on long. Change to a
different clean spot on the towel as soon as the crayon starts coming
up. Oil pastels are definitely...oilier than crayons, so you'd have to
be careful it doesn't spread out.
