{collecting} Felissimo colored pencils

I might have mentioned sometimes last year that I subscribed to the Felissimo colored pencils. 500 of them, sent out on a monthly subscription basis, 25 of them each month. They also have beautiful, inspiring names, it’s very much fun to make all kinds of association.

Six months have passed by (where did the time fly?) and now I have six beautiful sets of colored pencils. If you were wondering, yes, they are still unused. Part because I am a procrastinator, part because they look so beautiful, I don’t want to damage the collection. But I was forced to promise I will use them, so probably I should start practicing.

Here are three of my sets. The other three will follow soon.

Catamaran, Crocodile, Mountain Greenary, Forest Green, Greenhouse, Ethel Avenue, Irish Hillside, Virgin Forest, Flemish, Casino, Peacock, Rowena, Foliage, Catamount, Huntington, Mint Jerry, Teal, River’s Edge, Prince Valiant, Delta, Verdi, Little Lizard, Hillside, Mint Chutney, Haricots Verts

Wisconsim Sky, Sea Rock, Handsome Harry, Mountain Morn, Guadalupe, Aspen, Mermaid’s Gown, French Twist, Liz, Perfect Purple, Matelot, Lakeside Lodge, French Blue, Sailor Boy, True Purple, Poseidon, Indian Slipper, Russian Sea, Tyrol, Douglas Fir, Port-Of-Call, Midnight Sea, Salty Sea, Blue Velvet, Three O’clock

Blackberry Ice, Hibiscus, Lavender, Paris, Petticoat, Pink Pearl, Rosy Cheeks, Primrose Pink, Pretty Polly, Touch Of Peach, Sassafras, Liu, Hotline, Hortense, Baby Pink, Meteor, Prawn, Creamy Peach, Pink Salmon, Clown Cheeks, Bay Shrimp, Lucy, Bramble, Amaranth, Cavalier

What would you do with so many pencils? Draw, keep and display, give as gifts?

Have a colorful day, my friends!

    I love this idea! I’ve been looking everywhere trying to find the Aurora Display Case. Were you able to get one? How do you display them?

    I just inherited the whole set of the 500 Felissimo pencils. Brand new in cases. Is anyone interested in them? I have no use for them.
