I just wanted to tell you all I did end up getting the prismacolor colored pencils. After sitting there for over half an hour I finally decided to get the box of 96 along with a box of 36 of prismacolor verithins. I hope I did the right thing
I have been sharpening pencils for an hour now
I feel like a kid with a new toy. I only hope I can do all this wonderful art supplies justice. Thank you everyone. Oh I also found this neat pencil at the art store called a Splendor Blender. There was a man shopping there and when I went to check out he said he has one and uses it all the time.
Okay I guess I have yacked my little head off long enough now. Again I can't thank you all enough for all your sage advice
Ivy, Lulu, Arlene and TeAnne. You have all been soooooo great.
