Portfolio Series Water-Soluble Oil Pastels ~ Classpack of 300~
Several years ago I wised up and started visiting teacher's' school supply/educational resource sites (especially the Clearance links) for bulk purchasing of "the old standards" like glue sticks, Crayola markers and crayons and #2 pencils. Not only did the one-time investment in a classroom-sized bulk box - or "classpack"- ultimately save me hundreds of dollars over yearly retail purchase prices but it also allowed me to skip the back-to-school panic of running around town filling the school supplies list and late-night meltdowns when 'Oh I forgot it was due tomorrow' art projects arise. I simply walk downstairs to the basement and load up. In fact, I haven't bought a pencil, glue stick or crayon since 2002! With winter upon us and long hours of "Moooom, I'm booored" ahead, maybe it's time you had a look for yourself! *From the site:* This set of bright, vivid colors can be used wet or dry to create a variety of effects. These sticks have a creamy consistency, and are easy to blend into true secondary colors when used dry. Wet, they can be used to create subtle watercolor effects. Excellent for rubbings, wet-on-wet, scratch art and color overlays. A great set for the student artist from the makers of Crayola® products. Non-toxic.
