Crayola vs Embroidery Pens


I've been hearing a lot about people using Crayola markers to do their gridding.  And my reaction was one of horror.  Why would you even do such a thing?  Crayola is synonymous with staining and tears.

But enough people are saying they're doing it that I felt compelled to check it out.  Either it really does work, or there are a significant amount of people out there who don't care about weird stains on their work.  But that's absurd, right?  Surely the answer is that they work?  But how well?    So I got a whole bunch of different varieties of Crayola markers and decided to run them through a whole variety of tests.  And wound up being a bit surprised.
