I've heard that the wax when using the crayon tends to like cure in the crack with the heat from shooting and protects it from washing of when you apply cleaner to it, not sure if it's true, I've heard of people doing it with them roll'a'penn from the craft department in Wally world too and I want to say that's actually oil based paint. I think it looks cool.

I also have the red one. I'm going to use them to do the bullet pictograms on a lower selector.

I want one in Dago Orange for my revolver front sight.If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
One of these days, the people who can do things will come out on top.
There are a lot of people who know how to work things but damn few who know how things work.

I did mine a few weeks ago with model paint and am waiting for the durability test of time, heat and concealed carry.
I was afraid my over 50 year old eyes was going to let me mess up and stick the wrong magazine in the wrong lower. I have a G23, G27 and a G19 upper. Just to muddle it more I have 357sig and 9mm conversion barrels. Too much stuff and too easy to mix it up. Don't won't to fire off a 9mm in a 40SW or 357sig barrel.I'm a pistol packing vegetarian. I believe in keeping my options open.

Below is From the ebay site you had posted above.
TOOL ONLY - LEGAL WORLDWIDE
Professional gunsmiths use these Industrial grade lacquer paint sticks to fill in the stamped lettering on both blued and stainless steel guns for an easy custom look.
Whether you want to individualize a pistol slide or a fine rife barrel, now it is super easy. Just rub this wax-like paint into any recessed logo, lettering or serial number and then use a paper towel wrapped straight edge to wipe the excess off. It's that simple! Made with pride in the USA.
Red and black look great on stainless or nickel plated guns. White, yellow, and red are also great for highlighting the caliber marking on the back of Glock magazines to prevent confusion between the very similar 9mm, .40, or .357 mags.
This listing is for ONE new paint stick in your choice of: WHITE, RED, YELLOW , or BLACK.
I keep all these colors in stock, but unless another color is requested, I will ship the most popular - WHITE paint.
Please let me know if you wish another color.
Using a paint stick to highlight lettering on a slide:
For best results, just rub it into the letters and then use a paper towel wrapped straight edge to wipe the excess off. (If you wipe using a rough rag, or without using a support, you can dig the paint back out of the letters.) Let it set-up a while, then apply a second coat to completely fill the lettering. Wipe the excess as before, then wait for the lacquer paint to set-up again. Finally, wipe the surface of the gun totally clean with a paper towel having a couple drops of gun oil on it. It is that easy!
Once totally hard, the paint will stand up to normal cleaning for years. I used this product on a G26 five years ago and it still looks great. If you ever want to remove the paint: soak with gun or mineral oil to soften the lacquer and use a wooden toothpick or soft nylon brush to scrub the paint out from the lettering. It will come totally clean with no damage at all to your pistol's finish.

Don't do stupid things, with stupid people at stupid places at stupid times.

If someone would like to do a group buy I would be in for a red and white stick, hell if a few of us in the same area would do this, the shipping alone would be worth the savings.

This is a picture on my Smith&Wesson mode 15 that I inlayed with aproduct called Metal Marker about 35 years ago. The gun has not been used very often but recently it usually follows me to the range and consumes about 24 rounds a triphttp://http://s998.photobucket.com/a...g.jpg&newest=1

Nice look on the white inlay. I like it.We are forced to defend ourselves with firearms because lightsabers were not mentioned in the bill of rights.

The white does look great! Here is mine with "RED" It seems to match the HI-VIZ sight pretty well!

I did my Glock today with a gray crayon. It's a little more subdued than the white, and looks great on the all black pistol. At least I like it.I can longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist perversion and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.
