OK. I've searched all the art supply and craft stores, even the school
supply stores near me and had no luck. I scanned the internet, but all I
find is regular crayons, and even then, only Crayola. I'm looking for
glitter crayons. I know they exist, because there are places on the
internet where art work is displayed (or offered for sale) and one of
the media used is "glitter crayon". Where, oh where, can I purchase such
wonders?

Crayola makes glitter crayons but perhaps they aren't sold in your area.
You can get a softer sort of glitter crayon at any theatrical make-up
place or costume shop. There are also make-up sticks that contain
glitter but of course that would wash off easily.

There are also sticks of glitter glue which are meant to go in a glue
gun. Depending on the project you could use those.

The school supply catalogues (only one of many below) offer them...and I
just happened to (literally) bump into them at Target yesterday...

It's for inclusion with a fantasy-based coloring book, so it really has to be
a crayon. I've seen glitter glue sticks by Crayola in the store, but not
crayons. And the only prices I've seen mail-order for the crayons have been
exorbitant, considering that I need to purchase between 100-150, and the cost
of the entire package (coloring book and crayons) must remain low. Thanks for
taking the time, though.
