This generates a very soft smooth effect.
Color a location of the image using a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can make interesting patterns. Experiment using a bit of blank paper first.

If possible use a smaller part of cotton wool or cloth to polish the picture.
Heat in the friction of rubbing melts the crayon and produces a smooth shiny effect.
Apply a tiny amount of vegetable oil to your cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil over the back of the picture.
The oil will make the picture almost transparent.
Students could be in the oil soaked balls in a paint tray.
Encourage the crooks to check out and over the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the picture in the classroom window to create a stained glass effect.
