  1. Tina, I was looking online for information on Design watercolor pencils 1605 and came across your posts regarding them. I work at a resale store in Wisconsin and came across a set of 24, but no prices. What would this set go for? Carrie

    1. The Design Watercolor pencil are relatively rare! If the set is new, you could easily get $48 for a set of 24. If used, then probably more like $25 - $30, depending on the condition. You might want to search eBay for current prices.

  2. Hello I hope you see this, but I used some of my Nana’s Utrecht colored pencils and I just loved how they laid down on paper… I saw they were bought by Blick, which colored pencils would be the closest to the ones my Nana has?

    1. According to Blick, their own brand name (Blick Studio Artists) colored pencils are made by Utrecht in the Czech Republic (or at least they were several years ago), so in theory, they are the same.
