Names of Jesus Art Idea

This painting by Gwen Meharg sparked an idea... after consulting with the artist, she suggests writing the background names with marker or colored pencil and the foreground name, Jesus or whoever (could be one of the other names for Jesus) in oil pastels. The oil pastels will cover anything and they blend well. (One would not want to try and write the background names on top of oil pastels - you'll ruin your markers.)

Artist also suggests: Maybe little names in crayon or colored pencil, a wash of watercolor which would make the crayon "pop" out and finish with Jesus on top in oil pastels. 

(Thanks for the ideas Gwen!)
