Retouch crayons are wax-based crayons used to fill minor scratches and defects in finished projects. It's a simple way to repair a scratch in a newly made piece, or do a quick repair on an old piece.
Match the surface color as closely as possible; if you can't find a color that matches exactly, choose a crayon that is a little darker. Rub the crayon across the scratch to fill, and then rub on the scratch to finish up. Let the wax harden up, and then buff with a soft cloth to level out the wax and remove the excess. Most cabinetmakers I know keep a set of these crayons in their installation bag so they can easily touch up any minor scratches on-site so the final product looks perfect.
