"While popularly regarded as a children’s art instrument, crayons are also used extensively by professional artists. A crayon is stick of wax, chalk, charcoal, or other material to which color or pigment is added. Some artists work with watercolor crayons that are soluble in water. Known for their blunt lines and range of colors, crayons are widely popular as art mediums. While the practice of combining wax and pigment to create a writing or art work goes back thousands of years, the earliest reference to ‘crayons’ dates to the mid-seventeenth century.

Historians believe that the Egyptians were among the earliest to use wax–beeswax–and pigment to create encaustic paintings. Encaustic paintings employed heated wax to create art. The ancient Greeks and Romans also favored the use of heated wax for painting. Historians suggest that modern crayons, however, have their roots in Europe. These early crayons were produced with charcoal and oil. Due to the presence of the charcoal, these early crayons were noted for their dark hues. While similar to pastels which have a longer history, crayons began to be regularly used by artists by roughly the 1790s."
