What draws on wood?

in Crafts and Projects

What draws on wood? Anyone who has had to bear witness to my love of stationary and art materials won’t be surprised by the fact that I’ve been asking myself this question. I’ve been rummaging through my supply cupboard to experiment. All of these pictures are on dry wood and I’ll explain some pros and cons I’ve come across.

Crayons 
Pro: You probably have some. Cheap. Lots of colours. Works OK on green wood too.
Cons: Not very crisp results.
