Some colors are more transparent than others. Some colors are very opaque. Test your colors on a separate piece of paper to see how they work together. Too many layers of crayon can make the colors resist each other. This can make it harder to add more color. Use as few colors as possible to get your end result. Scratch out small lines and details (such as hair, the veins in leaves and flowers, etc.) with a craft knife. Crayon is excellent for scratching due to the wax. Do not get frustrated! You will need practice to get the look you want. It's worth it!
If you want a clean and bold look for your picture, you can use colored markers for the color. It has a wide variety of colors and you can choose between fine tipped ones and broad tips depending on your needs. There are also refillable markers where you can just purchase ink whenever it dries up or loses its color. It's also an easy material to use. You just have to apply a single coat on the drawing. You can also add some more details using either a white colored pencil or a white inked pen.
