I really think they should've been called something besides Crayons because they're anything but waxy to me. You can put the color on the back of your hand like lipstick. Now that's rich, creamy pigment. I like that.
The Distress Crayon line is a great product line. The colors glide on smooth and creamy and are true to the other distress products ( inks, paints) for a perfect match on your crafting projects. They react with water in wonderfully surprising ways - different every time. I recommend these Ditress Crayons for everyone interested in water coloring. They mix and blend beautifully. So much fun!
