It wouldn't really show up. Say you were writing on black paper. Crayons work by rubbing off on the paper, leaving a trail of the waxy substance. Therefore you can see the white wax against the black paper. But markers work by letting ink soak into the paper, so the white color would just get lost in the black of the paper and you can't see it.

I feel as though I'd have more uses for a white marker.

Probably because it wouldn't show up as good. I dunno.

I used to love writing messages in white crayon on white paper.

@DandyLion I used to love writing messages in white crayon on white paper.

And then coloring over it with marker to see the hidden message :)

Because you can use white crayons on colored paper and see white but markers just bleed into it and just make it look like a wet trail, not white. Also because you can blend crayon colors but it you tried to blend marker colors it would just change the white marker's color to whatever color you were trying to blend it with.

White ink? Wouldn't work on dark paper.

I have a white marker... You use it over top of special coloured markers and then the colour changes.
