I love to color, but avoided copics because of the expense. To spend $20 to be able to correctly shade one specific color isn't in my budget. I then discovered the Spectrum Noir and fell in love. If you have a Joanns, they do carry the packages of 6 for $15. With coupons, they're $9. That's the same price you can find them online. The 6-packs are also coordinated to help with shading and coloring. I think they're a great deal.
Save your drama for your llama.
