  1. hi everyone! The box really is beautiful, I’m currently considering selling mine and came across this post whilst looking into if there was any interest out there… It was given to me as a gift and none of the pieces have been used

  2. I’m trying to find one of these for my daughter who is an excellent artist. She started at a very young age and learned by being taught to “stay within the lines” by my mother who she is named after. She’s uses all forms of medium, charcoal, crayon, colored pencil, water color, acrylic, etc. She is amazing at what she does and to get her this set would be the ultimate gift for her!

  3. How does one inter to try to win one of these. I am a person that does not have very much money and I keep dreaming of owning a set of Faber Castell polychromous and I can not afford them I would love to be able to try to win this set.

  4. I have been trying to get a hold of a piece for a few months now. My fiance is a budding artist and I know this set is a dream that may never come true. I just hope you can help me locate a piece. I know it would mean a lot to her.

  5. I would like to order this Special Edition for my lovely sister-in-law, Diane. How do I get it? – And can it be shipped to her directly, if I pay for it on my credit card?
