This list is unique to The Underpainters. We're using more colors than the Allium for Color Wonk.

List to be updated as I find the need for other colors/supplies but nothing will be removed.

BTW: I'm using Prismacolor 934 Lavender which is discontinued. Newer sets contain Orchid 1105 as the replacement pinkish lavender color. The Lavender links below are just for reference, they will not work as the pencil is no longer available.

Many students have noticed a marked improvement in the smoothness of their blends by making this simple switch.
