Just received these little jewels which are the Vibrants Sampler ordered from Terry Ludwig clearance section. I'm thrilled with them and with the super fast service.

Yummy, Carol! Did they include a list of the product numbers? I don't see that info on their website.

Yes Evelyn there was the usual little sheet with product numbers and little squares to fill in with color.

Wow, that is a pretty box of jewels! I added some of the TL vibrants earlier this year, wow, they are just what was missing :)

Oh WOW! Oh neat he's doing this. Dang it. Late in the month too. Drooling furiously. I love those colors and the Vibrants were too big a set for me to order... but a Clearance set of 14 wouldn't be...

I need to be strong and resist the temptation. No more pastel shopping :p

Sorry not to have been clear, Carol -- what are the product numbers? I keep track of my sticks, and I'd be grateful if you could list these so I can see if I have them already!

They look wonderful! Congratulations :) What is the clearance about? Smaller sets or lower prices? Are they discontinuing some sets? The website seems to be down now.
Thank you :)
I really need to stop being curious or think about more pastels... :D

Evelyn, I'm not in my studio now, but I will list them later.
Nick, I don't know why they are on clearance....there is nothing wrong with them and they work out at less than $3 a stick. Not really, really inexpensive, but enough to tempt me! (it doesn't take much...lol).

I think it might be that when Terry makes batches, some colors wind up overstocked and get less often ordered open stock. Or he just chose those 14 to tempt people to get more Vibrants! I know I was very tempted but didn't need 60 pinks and reds and red-violets, even though I wanted them. Nice range of values and hues in the little box. There might be some overlap with my Violets set though...
I put it in the cart. Going to watch it for a few days. If I get it, I'll be tapping savings again and I really shouldn't. There are too many small Ludwigs sets that I want - never have decided between the Ultramarine and Cobalt Blues... dang it, dang it... I have enough pastels. I have LOTS of pastels and even lots of Terry Ludwigs. But there's always more I want.
I'm a color junkie.
I need a sugar daddy or mama who loves my art and wants to throw me more new sets all the time and more paper and maybe chiropracty while they're at it...

Evelyn......Here you go....I went the easy route and just photographed the sheet showing the numbers. Sorry you have to stand on your head to read it.

In case you are having trouble getting through to Terry Ludwig, there is a good reason. Some not-so-nice people have hacked his website. :eek: That is just so sad. So if you have trouble with emails, be patient, things will be straightened out soon.

You're the best, Carol -- many thanks! And Karen, maybe that's why the product numbers aren't displaying on the Ludwig sets -- thanks to you, too, for the skinny! I hope Terry clears up the problem soon. . . .

here ya go.
08-24-2015, 05:26 PM
Thank you Ural. Quite beyond my capabilities. Lol
08-24-2015, 05:27 PM
Thanks for the heads up! :wave:

Okay... so I checked it all out... compare Terry Ludwig's web site prices against Dick Blick's - Blick's prices are cheaper in general - maybe not the actual 3 items on clearance, but all the other sets...?
