Prang colored pencils are about half the price with the same quality as
Prismacolor..of course every now and them you will find Prismacolor odd
colored pencils on a terrific sale...I have purchased copper, gold, silver.
A good source for art supply sales are university bookstores. Naturally I
am speaking of things that you purchase yourself...somewhow they don't do
purchase orders for "final sales."
