New way to color fill engraves?

I wonder how these might work:


I believe @bailey has used something similar to this before.

Kinda. Looks like it was an acrylic paint stick.

Japanese crayons are really soft…like oil pastels, although I don’t know if that’s actually what they are. I almost bought a set last week when I was at Uwajimaya, just out of nostalgia (I spent most of my first 10 years in Japan), but my grownup side said I needed to justify the purchase. I wish I’d thought of Glowforge items as a potential use!

I’ll be back down in that area later this week. Maybe I’ll stop in again, and get them. :slight_smile:

Yeah, I picked up a fresh set of oil pastels while I was at it. My old ones are in fragments.

Doggone it, you guys have got to stop linking to all these cool toys! (I’m looking at you, @evansd2! You’re becoming an enabler.) :smile:


I don’t make the news, I just report it :slight_smile:


You create rabbit holes! As if there weren’t enough already! :wink:


Well, I don’t have those but Marabu art crayons. Different design, same principle. These are super soft easy to use and water-soluble.
