  34. It took me all afternoon but got them all counted LOL. Between my full sets of Caran Dache, Prismacolors, Derwents, etc...I have 690 colored pencils. Wow, i didnt realize i had that many and still have a full set of water color pencils i would love to get. I love using colored pencil as my medium, i just wish the upper eschelon realized that colored pencil artists are just as much artists as anyone working in other mediums...its so sad that this art medium isnt seen as important :( I would love the colored pencil stand...looks awesome and would make it much nicer than having them rolling around my art table LOL

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh my,what a question!I'm not going to count them all like Coleen Osmond did! LOL! ALL pencils? Colored,cheap,broken,mine and my family's and otherwise?? All I'd say 400 or so, and if it's just counting my good pencils it's roughly 150. ;)
