Second was price. Oozark.com seems to have the best pricing but many items are out of stock.

But I am completely bewildered and overwhelmed by the color choices. I like the way Flourishes has gropued them into families and that might be a possibility.

Are there certain colors to start with or should I just choose individual colors that I like?

Please help!!!!
If 144 colors is enough for one collection and you're on a budget the best way is to go with the Ciao. I love the color selection so I personally like Copic Sketch (334 colors).

Price - I shop at dickblick.com, iCopic.com, & eclecticpaperie.com - just like you ooz have to many out of stock colors and I like to shop at a store that have everything I need "IN STOCK"

How to choose the colors: I would suggest starting out with color that you usually use for your artwork. I like to color a lot of flower so i tend to buy a lot of green, brown, blue, red, orange, pink, violet, & gray. But I only buy 2 or 3 per color (different tone so you can blend them). A must have is your black and the colorless blender (ohhh boy..I love the colorless blender). Hope this help.
