When I looked up crayons in WordReference it showed "crayon gras" but not "crayon à la cire." Would crayons gras work here?
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
crayons gras -- wax pencil, grease pencilcrayons de cire -- crayons
There's a difference between crayons gras and crayons de cire. I haven't really heard crayons à la cire used that much but presume that it's synonymous to crayons de cire.
But are they synonymous?
à la cire -- made of wax.
crayon gras = wax pencils, perhaps the sort of thing that a stage actor would use ie. as makeup ?
