that are made of colored wax, chalk, or charcoal. There are various types of crayons, such as pastel, oil pastel, grease pencil, and watercolor crayons. Crayons are non-toxic, usually readily available, affordable and, they are considered to be less messy than working with paints or markers. They are mostly used for drawing by small children as well as art students and professionals. Many manufacturers package crayons in a box containing different colors of crayon sticks. Markers are also known as marker pens, fine liners, or marking pens feature pressed, porous fiber tips, and internal ink reservoirs. The reservoir in a marker contains an ink carrying absorbent material, and the ink uses alcohol as a solvent. Markers have caps that are necessary to keep the ink on the fiber tip from drying.

Pencils are used for note writing, drawing, and sketching.Get the best choice of crayons, pencils and drawing tools available in the market today.
