Like the Chalk and Conte brushes the Crayon group takes up the paper texture very well as you can see from the examples below.
The two odd ones are the Grainy Hard Crayon and the Waxy Crayon, both of which smear the cloned image.
The second example of the Dull Crayon brush uses a paper called Crystalline Formation from the Molecular library, which is one of the paper libraries that can be loaded from the Extras folder on the Painter program CD.
The picture above was initially painted with the Painted Crayon, brush size 108.0, opacity 28% and grain 14%. This gave a light texture over all the photograph.
The Dull Crayon was then used to bring in more detail. Brush size 78.2, opacity 9% and grain 20%.
The settings for the Dull Crayon were changed to brush size 12.0, opacity 30% which brought in more detail.
Most of these brushes show the paper texture very well when used in the Grainy Hard Cover Cloning method, as these were here.
