Would I love to have matching water color pencils? Yes! Do I think it will happen? No. Here's why. Pencils are a lot harder to match than inks and paper. There is so much that goes into the making of a pencil and water color pencils that it would more than likely be very cost prohibitive to make our pencils in the 48 colors ~ or even 24 colors. My charcoal pencils cost me $45 and if I wanted all the colors the manufacturer offers, it would be well over $100. Don't ask me why, I don't know, but it seems to be just the way it is with the pencil industry. I've heard from others they've been asking for new pencils for a few years, I actually just wish SU would come up with a press release explaining their decision on this. Tell me it's cost prohibitive and I'll say OKAY! But don't leave me in the dark, please.
