Used to buy coloring sets of pencils, watercolors, acryl, pastels etc Since sets is usually the same standard colors I got thinking about buying single colors in more unusual colors/hues. A few years ago I got some single oil pastels of the gold/metallic type. Now I am looking at watercolor pencils. Things like venetian red and pompeii red caught my eye. I did buy a magenta single watercolor pencil some time ago and a pink not sure what color exactly as its number is not at the site I bought it from.If anyone has unusual single color watercolor pencils would like to know what you bought?
I like vibrant colors and seldom use neutrals. What do I buy? Smiley

I usually buy the purest versions available of black, white, red, yellow, blue, and a magenta-ish pink.  That lets me blend pretty much any other color.  regular red is usually too orange to  make a good purple, so I use the pink.  Some blues are too red to make a good turquoise, so I sometimes buy that, too.

Me too, I do this for paint, particularly specialised paint like screen printing inks, textile paint etc. Good primaries +black and white and you can do almost everything. Although I have a flamingo obsession, so a flamingo pink is often purchased

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness

I would love to get my hands on charlie harper fabric.
