Crayon is a pointed stick or pencil of colored clay, chalk or wax, etc., used for drawing. There is a large variety of colors made especially for pottery, for drawing directly onto bisque or a fired glaze. After the drawing is finished and before firing, a thin layer of glaze is painted or sprayed over the whole work. Many very attractive designs are produced with this method.
