Hi....I use the 12 color boxes of Prismacolor and order additional colors
such as flesh tones, silver, gold, etc. After keeping the pencils in their
boxes for several years, I put all the pencils in flat cookie sheet so my
high school kids could come up and pick the colors they needed It worked out
artistically fine except for the fact that so many pencils were stollen.
Call it stollen or borrowed, the fact is still that they are gone. So my only
recourse is to keep the pencils in the boxes so I can check them at the end
of class. EAC
