I purchased my set of Prismacolor Lead Pencils at Hobby Lobby for approximately $160.00. This set holds 120 soft lead pencils of every imaginable color. My husband used these pencils for projects he had to do in his art studies, and I use them for sketching. This is a professional quality set, in a sturdy box with a pull-up, flip-open lid. These pencils are really beautiful and easy to use. They would make a great gift for anyone who is an artist or an aspiring artist. They are rather expensive, but of very good quality, and as I said before, they are professional quality, not something for the children to play around with. I and my husband have gotten much use out of this set and intend to get much more use out of it. A really great set of professional quality color pencils.
Update On Mar 02, 2010: I just used these pencils the other day for some artwork I was experimenting with. I really do like them, and when they need replacing, I will invest in the same in a heartbeat.
