I'm a Mechanical Engineer, even if that's no longer in my title. I've done gear design, machine design, hydraulic design, system design.... These days I develop desktop applications and am starting to ramp up my web application skills with HTML5, Javascript, and jQuery. I've been programming in various languages since before the TI-99 and Commodore 64 days back in 19..(cough, cough, mumble, mumble).

I don't still have the box the Crayolas came in. Though I can tell you that when an art supply like that says 'water soluble', they generally mean, "if you scrub really hard with soap and water, it might not stain your clothes". The Crayola Gel FX have proven impervious to incidental spills, and I remember that I had a deuce of a time getting it all off my fingers when I was first coloring the dice; though soap and water and scrubbing did work for clean-up, so they would still technically be described as water soluble.

The following two products might be acceptable substitutes for Gel FX: crayola.com/products/dryerase-bright-crayons-product, crayola.com/products/…, but I haven't tested either one.

@javafueled: Crayons. I suppose it's possible that they don't make them anymore. Basically, you want a nice soft crayon that is made for use on black paper. That way, the pigment is very opaque.
