Sometimes a pencil isn’t the marking tool of choice — when you need long-lasting, weatherproof markings on wood, concrete, ceramics, metal, or just about any other surface, grab yourself a lumber crayon. These crayons also mark oily, slick, and wet surfaces.
You can get these non-toxic lumber crayons from Irwin in red, blue, green, black, white, and yellow. They’re sold singly, in two-packs, in six-packs, and in twelve-packs of the same color.
At slightly less than a buck for a single crayon or $7 for a twelve-pack, these crayons cost a bit more then Crayolas — so keep the kids away from your stash.
