I'm interested in making underglaze "crayons". I've looked through a
number of books, but the instructions I've found have been rather
cursory, and somewhat doubtful (ie, make the crayon out of plaster).
Does anyone have quick-and-dirty (and hopefully
effective-and-consistent) instructions for making these?

I have an article in my notebooks on making underglaze pencils etc. I
posted to the list awhile back on the subject.
Here is a link to my post:
Here is a link to an archive search for "underglaze pencil"

If you can beg, borrow (and hopefully not steal) a copy of John B Kenny's
book, Ceramic Sculpture - Methods and Processes, 1953, ISBN 0-8019-0612-6
hard cover, or ISBN 0-8019-6052-5 paperback, there are instructions to
make underglaze crayons, using a porcelain clay, and firing to cone 04.

Thanks for the links Taylor.
I also disovered that a book I had previously overlooked "The Ceramic
Spectrum" (Hopper) has detailed instructions.
