I did a similar project last week! You can find trays at Ikea or Target!

I have a similar tray, and my daughter has approximately THIRTY MILLION crayons, so, yay, I know what we're doing today! Thanks!

when I made them, they separated -- like oil and water. Ewwww. Do you think it is because I used some "washable" crayons and some regular?

It can be sketchy to even mix brands because of different melting properties. ... If you see my pics on the right there are still whole crayons visible. I thought it added to the look of it when they cooled, but I can see how something like that might make a person crazy.

Another tip that people are telling me: If you're useing unbroken crayons and are having trouble getting the wrappers off, slit them with a sharp knife (it will save your sanity and your fingernails).
