Soybean crayons are softer and lay down a good layer without much pressure.
I used them last year with success. So often the kids hate putting down the
waxy layer because it takes so much effort. We cracked the crayon by
crumpling
the colored paper and then gave them a wash with india ink - then rinse off
and
the result was beautiful - but the crayon has to be heavy waxy for it to work
or
you have the grey result. Roberta
