The project

 

Begin by routing your design to a suitable depth of around 8mm, or half the thickness of your board depth.

Break up crayons and lay them in the groove, and then melt with a heat gun.

Scrape back the excess so that the crayon layer is flush with the surface.

Sand with an orbital sander to remove any residual crayon.
