Good quality crayon set
« on: November 15, 2020, 03:57:52 pm »
My elder daughter is a good, amateur artist. I'd like to get her a decent set of crayons - or any other, non-oils - drawing kit. Any ideas - I'm clueless?

Caran D'Ache water soluble crayons.
Favourite of mine, and also favourite of my good buddy Sir Norman Foster.
They're a joy to work with.

I think there will be a few sets up for grabs once Trump leaves the Oval office

Aye, but there won't be any green ones left.

ETA - I use Derwent Inktense (bloody silly name) and they seem pretty good to me.
