I mentioned yesterday that there are some colored pencil projects I started solely for the purpose of testing out new supplies. Today I want to share some of my absolute favorite colored pencil supplies, starting with the best pencil sharpener I've ever used. All of these came from my colored pencil wishlist.
The Kutsuwa T'GAAL Angle Adjustable Pencil Sharpener is incredible (affiliate link here and below). You can choose the angle for sharpening; the sharpest one is beyond anything I've ever seen. The point gets into the tiniest of spaces with ease. The sharpener feels great in my hand. It doesn't hold quite as much shavings as some other sharpeners I've tried, but I don't mind dumping it out slightly more often. I'm not sure how long the blade will stay razor sharp, but every sharpener dulls over time. And this is affordable enough to replace as needed.
I love the Tombow Mono Zero Eraser. The precision tip makes it so easy to get into small places and the pen shape makes it much easier to grip than a standard rectangular eraser. The round version is equally spectacular. Get both!
I got a set of aluminum pencil extenders and they are fantastic. The red pencil below is one of my beloved Eagles and it is under 2" long, which makes it almost impossible to hold and control. By sliding it into the pencil extender, I can hold it comfortably and continue to use it until there's virtually nothing left!
My BTSKY Colored Pencil Organizer is everything I'd hoped it would be and more. There are 168 slots that each hold a single pencil securely, yet it's easy to get them in and out. The organizer zips and has handy carrying strap. When zipped, it can sit on a shelf like a book. I've grouped my pencils by color; it's convenient to see all my options side-by-side like this.
Do you have any favorite colored pencil supplies that aren't on my list? I'd love to hear about them!
