I read about Neocolors on one of my fav blogs Daisy Yellow.  I couldn’t find any at Michaels so I headed over to a local art supply store, Mittels,  and I’m so glad I did.  I could feel the specialness of the products the minute I walked in.  It reminded me of how nice it is to shop at family owned stores as often as possible.  So much care and love of art went into the store.  They didn’t have Neocolors but they had Lyra Aquacolors, which I was told were almost the same.  I picked out a few colors and tried them out late night last night.  What fun! I love the way the colors blended when I added water, especially the really vibrant ones.  I can’t wait to experiment more.  My kindergartners are going to love these.  Thanks for the inspiration Tammy!
