Default Coloring mediums - how many

Hello everyone!
This weekend I worked on creating birthday cards for a Ronald McDonald house for a fellow SCSer. As I was creating and looking at my supplies I realized all the different coloring tools I own and then realized I do not use them all.
I own

Watercolor crayons
21 Copics- 24 Prisma markers
MANY Prismas Pencils
Bic Markers
Sharpies
almost all of the SU markers
ALL of the CTMH markers (I won the entire set in a blog candy)
H20s
Stargazer shimmers (like H20s)
Metallic colored pencils
regular colored pencils
chalk pencils
SU chalks
Pebbles Shimmer Chalk set
SU watercolor pencils set

So I think I am set for coloring. Now I really need to start using them ALL more!
How about you? Do you have many coloring mediums also?????

I thought I had a lot, but not that many. Here's my list:

The full set of Prisma Pencils
Full set of Sharpies.. both the medium and the fine tips
Full set of Bics, medium point
Chalks
About 50 Copics so far
The whole SU maker set
A set of 12 Tombow markers
Skin toned chalk pencils
Glitter pens
Glaze pens
SU's Watercolor pencils
Re-inkers that I use to color with blending pens or H2O pens

(I think that's it). But yes, for coloring now, I mostly use Copics and plan to use my PrismaColor pencils more often. I do like watercoloring, I just don't do it much. I should unload my other markers, my kids would love them.

I have pretty much everything...though never got into any Prisma nor CTMH markers, and my daughters (12 & 8yrs) are the only ones who use the Bics and Chalks now...since I mainly use my Copics.

My other coloring medium of choice is watercolor pencils or the inside of ink pad lids with aqua brushes (BrusH20s).

I can't tell you the last time I used anything besides watercoloring or copics....with the exception of an SU marker here and there.

I have
Copic over 200, I think?
Prisma Pencils
Water color crayons 2 packs from SU
CTMH markers-though I don't color much with these I usually color the edge of my white core cardstock
Sharpies-bought before copics rarely use
Koh-I-Nor pencils-I really like these

I mainly use Copic, Prisma and Koh-I-Nor.

What a fun thread.

Wow, I'm glad to know that others have lots too. Sometimes I think I have way too much, but here's my list:

SU watercolor crayons
SU watercolor pencils
Bic markers (the 36-set)
8 Gellyroll Stardust pens
SU incolor markers from this year
and my favorite of all: about 60 Prismacolor markers, with another 55 expected to arrive any day now. I really, really like the Prisma markers.

I'm soooo glad I'm not the only one who has this problem. I use whatever I have that's closest. I use my chalks the least and probably my SU, Marvy and Tombow's the most. I've had them longer, so I'm a little bit better at blending them.

I currently have, or at least what I can remember at this hour:


Copic Sketch Markers - All of them including all of the Atyou Spicas
Marvy LePlumes - All of them w/ some duplicates
Tombow - All of them w/ some duplicates
Stampin Up - Complete set plus the neutrals and in colors available
CTMH - 12 pastel colors
Lyra Watercolor Crayons - Set of 48
Prism Colored Pencils - All of them plus my original set of 48
Derwent Water Color Pencils - Set of 36
Sargent Pastel Chalks - set of 48
SU Chalks - Set of 48
Chalk Pencils - set of 24
Sharpies - both the regular and ultra fine sets of 24
Several Water Color Paletes
H20s - Set of 12 bright and pastel colors

I think that's it, but there could be more. I'll have to check underneath all of my cardstock scraps when I clean up next

I collect writing and art tools. I have a large bookshelf full of them. I honestly do collect them. I even found a book in the library today about collecting writing and art tools. Name it and I have it.

I have a lot of those things posted, but I also have something called "water color STICKS." Can anyone explain to me what water color sticks are? Why would I need those in addition to wc pencils and wc crayons? Are they the same as either of those? They look like pencils w/o the wood. Yep, it was a silly purchase.

I am so out of it! Coloring has never been my thing so I stick to the basics -- ink with blender pens, watercolor pencils, some "real" watercolors, Pearl Ex, SU! markers, SU! pastels. Never tried watercolor crayons or Copics.

They are watercolor pencils without the wood. I think you'd use them in larger areas. There are definitely advantages to them over the pencils, but since I use tube watercolors a lot, I don't need the sticks.

I have a number of different coloring mediums. Each is used depending on the situation. I just don't keep track of the exact number of each. How many of what ever is not important to me. I use what I have is what's important.

i'm hooked on the smooch accent inks and i don't see that anyone mentioned them...

if you want to fill in your design with something bright and shimmery they are FAB! and they have a great precision tip so you can get into the tiniest spaces!

i like to emboss my design so first - no matter what i'm using to fill in - it helps me stay in the lines!

i have several projects using the smooch inks on my clearsnap blog.

I went through and cut and pasted from your lists - cut out what I didn't have - I can't believe I have as many mediums as I do - I need to get busy using some of this stuff -

Watercolor crayons
Prismacolor colored pencils
Bic Markers
Sharpies
SU markers - 2 sets (one is old that is DD, one is new that is mine)
A few CTMH markers
H20s
Metallic colored pencils
regular colored pencils
SU chalks
SU watercolor pencils set
Normal watercolor paints
Skin toned chalk pencils
Re-inkers

I am thinking it would be fun (now that I am thinking of it and seeing this list) to stamp an image many times and then color it with the varied mediums to see how different I can make it, LOL -

I just bought some Prismacolour pencils and an odourless solvent and they work wonderfully. I can use my regular ink and it doesn't smear and my paper doesn't get wet and warped.
