Combining wax and pigment, crayons can yield controlled, sophisticated lines; add some water (if your sticks are water soluble) and you can thin out colors to achieve complex textures. Or layer crayons with paints to create unique mixed-media pieces. While you’ll get only so far with a popular kids’ brand like Crayola, there are numerous artist-grade options to choose from.
