How to Crayon Tint. To crayon tint, your embroidery, start by transferring your design to the fabric. I recommend using a finely sharpened regular pencil, as it won't require water or be affected by ironing. Place the fabric in an embroidery hoop so the back of the fabric can press against a flat surface and color the design as desired.
For beginners I would suggest either the Staedtler or Faber Castell brand of pencils. These produce significantly better results than bargain bin pencils, provide good colors and allow you to try some simple shading and blending techniques. With practice the best coloring results can even be achieved with the most modest tools!
