Background of Invention:
"Other conventional approaches for providing crayons and marking compositions have been ill-suited for marking on colored substrates, especially dark substrates. In this respect, upon application to colored substrates, especially dark substrates, crayons and marking compositions of the prior art generate marks that are dull and that are not bright or vivid enough to be readily seen against such dark backgrounds."
