I checked out the carvings at your site. Pretty good - did you do those yourself? But they're not as polished-looking as Peter Goldlust's.
I don't know how he gets that smooth, shiny look to his carvings. It looks like they were manufactured that way.
Maybe he uses a warm carving tool that makes the wax go smooth again. Maybe he re-heats the whole crayon when he's done carving?
Let us know if you find out.

I have also wondered about how he does the smooth look. I have tried heated tools without much luck. I got these odd layers of thin wax. The heating the whole crayon is an interesting thought but sounds like it would be hard to control. I bet he just does it really carefully.
