"I recently bought a set of Caran Dache museum aquarelles - and they are simply in another class. I use the Faber Castell polychromos for non-water colour work. I use Lyra Rembrant aquarelles in my travel kit. A brand you might also like to…"
"I've been using Prismacolor colored pencils for years. I love them and won't use any other brand. They blend so nicely. Also I like that I can go into the art store near my home and buy them individually whenever I just need a few certain…"
