I fell in love with Lyra's Aquarelle graphite pencils at the Lyra Booth
at NAEA. They seem quite durable, don't break off in the sharpener, and
were very velvety on paper. Brush over your drawing with a bit of
water and a beautiful wash is formed. The offer 50 percent off their
regular price for 100 bucks or more for schools, too. Their Aquarelles
(oilpastel like but water soluble) pastels are wonderful. I played with
their stuff for a long time.
