If krajono is pencil, what is crayon? Also, why is it called krajono?

Crayon, it seems, is "'pa┼Łtelo," which seems to lump children's wax crayons together with expensive artist's oil and chalk pastels.

It's probably called krajono in Esperanto because a pencil is crayon in French.

(I don't know what an English crayon would be in Esperanto. vaksskribilo?)
