When they really laid them on heavily and thickly, they worked well enough
for them to go back and color it in by hand. But it was pretty faint to
just leave it as it was, even after we saw the first results and some kids
got the point about needing the crayon to be very thickly applied. I will
have to give the pastels a try.
