Two new coloured pencil opinion polls for 2010

As promised earlier this year, today I have set up two BRAND NEW opinion polls about artists' grade coloured pencils and watercolour pencils on Coloured Pencils - Resources for Artists.
The main reason for starting a new poll is because there have been a lot of advances since the original poll was started:
  • CPSA has now published more data about the resusts of its lightfast testing of different brands of pencils
  • there are now more lightfast pencils, more people are aware of the lightfastness issues and people's preferences may well have shifted
  • new brands have been created eg Caran d'Ache Luminance pencils
  • people will have experimented with more brands and new brands and may well have changed their preferences!
Making A Mark Reviews (16 November 2009) Opinion Poll: Which is your favourite make of artist grade coloured pencil?
POLL: Which is your favourite make of artist grade coloured pencil?
Results chart as at 31st December 2009
(792 votes)

So - as of today there are now two NEW polls. Click the links below to view the options and vote:
The purpose of the polls is to identify which are the most popular coloured pencils in 2010 - hence all past votes which applied to choices available in the past no longer apply

Which means that all of you who already voted on the first poll can VOTE AGAIN! This time I want to know which brand - out of the ones which you use right now - is your favourite brand.

Note also that this is the first time I've set up a poll specifically for watercolor pencils.

As previously indicated, hopefully by providing feedback to the manufacturers about preferences there will be some incentive to continue with a good selection in the marketplace and products which continue to improve in both quality and lightfastness over time.

If any of the marketing people from the different pencil manufacturers are reading this and note that their new brands in the pipeline are NOT included please contact me with the date your product is due to be in the marketplace AND on your website.

Note: The first poll about artists' coloured pencils is being "retired" although its results will be maintained as an image (see above) on this blog and on Coloured Pencils - Resources for Artists
