SAVING ART SUPPLIES FOR A RAINY DAY

 

I got these amazing Caran D’ache Luminance Colored Pencil Set some time ago. They are some of my favorite and  most cherished color pencils. I love their creamy texture and how I can create color gradients with them.

But there’s a huge problem. I love them so much that I don’t want to use them. So they stayed in their box, and I only too them from there on special occasions. Kind of like the Good China our grandmothers used to get out of the cabinet on Christmas.

But no more. I decided that color pencils should be used, not staying on a box waiting for the perfect moment to be used.

So, I was brave and I took them out of the box and into a container I made for them. Now they are available for me when I need them, and I will use them! Oh yes! Just wait and see!

  1. Oh I’ve done the same thing. I have a set of 72 (I believe it’s 72 – 3 trays of them) Faber Castel coloured pencils and they’re still in the box!! I’ve had them for about 2 years maybe longer and like you I only take them out for special things. I am going to follow your lead and take them out of the metal box and set them out to use them more regularly. Thanks for the inspiration.
