Re: Is the Faber-Castell Polychromos Hard Pastel line being scaled down
I just checked Dakota, Fineartstore.com and the Faber-Castell websites and there seems to be no mention of any scaling down. All 120 pastel sticks are still available in open stock. The only thing that seems to be discontinued is the 120 set in a metal box. The other websites don't mention that set at all, so it's possible that this was only a Dakota offering. Jerry's seems to have a 100 piece set, that isn't available anywhere else that I could see. I realize that this is not a definitive answer. You could always call Dakota and see what they say.
