Wax Filler Using Crayons for 3D Engrave

I tried a 3d engrave on some wood I cut from my yard, and then used a heat gun to melt a colored crayon to add color into the area. Since crayons are typically paraffin wax and non-toxic color pigments, thought this might be an interesting way to add color to a piece.
