    Congrats to the winners! I guess it is better luck next time

    Oh darn – but congrats to those who won! And for those who didn’t and live in the US, I *just* checked Amazon again and there is a new seller offering the set of 36 and shipping is less than $5. We will need to wait 4-6 weeks, but y’know? I think I’m gonna give that a shot! (I don’t know if it’s ok to include a link here, but if you search for “micador colored pencils” (yes, the American spelling), then click on the pack of 36, then the link for “available from these sellers” and there is one new vendor! Woo-hoo!

    1. Tracy

      P.S. The seller is “Art & Frames” in Australia…and they have a selection of Micador products (I have absolutely no affiliation, but am delighted after hearing all Peta’s great info on Micador to be able to try some things out!)

      1. Paula

        Thanks for the info, Tracy!

    2. Sarah

      Thanks for info

    3. Joyce

      Tracy, I tried finding theses pencils. Amazon had several Micador products including water color pencils but I could not find these pencils from any other sellers and the Amazon site actually had them listed but it said they were no longer available and they did no know when or even if they would be available again.. Am I missing something?

      1. Melissa K

        They ran out but they did have some. I grabbed a set before they were gone, but saw later it said unavailable. Maybe since they sold so quickly they will restock!

  3. Chaypeta (Post author)

    Thanks Tracy. I don’t know anything about this seller at all except that they appear to be a new listing and they sell a number of Micador products.

    Mazel tov winners!

  5. Jaecel

    Congratulations to all the winners! 🙂 Hopefully I’ll have better luck next time. 😀

  6. Teresa

    Congratulations to the winners!!!

  7. Angie

    Congrats to all the winners. Looks like I will be checking out the Amazon site. Thank you Tracy for sharing this information.

    1. Angie

      Got them! Only 7 packs left!

  8. Nido

    Congrats to the winners.
    well….i guess i just dont have the luck for winning in contests.
    But i wouldnt be buying them, even i would like them, since the shipping alone from Micador cost $35. Not not worth it, since for me with the cost of the set + shipping, i can easily get a full set of Lyra Rembrandt.

    Anyway, was hope to get a set of Micador colourush so that i can compare them to Marco’s kiddy grade pencils. Which i suspected were the same.

    1. Ren

      It might be $34 AUD shipping but consider where you are, after the exchange into your local currency it’s probably much less. So that with the discount might make it a bit better for you – and the discount applies to everything.

      Sadly we can’t all win competition draws.

      1. Nido Kin

        well….either way, its pretty pointless to buy something with shipping cost about 2 times more then the product its self. And I found Lyra Rembrandt with is around the same price, but yet is a artist grade coloured pencil. But its very surprising that Lyra Rembrandt is made in China now.

        And i will settle for the assumed Micador’s twin brother, the Marco’s kiddy grade. The two are so similar just that Marco dont have colour names on the pencils, other then that they both have the same packaging methods, ways of arranging the pencils, colour palette.etc.

    I won thank you so much Peta and Micador I can’t wait to receive my pencils and play with them. I have been following your tutorials and will continue to follow any future videos. I don’t usually comment or enter competitions but I’m so glad I did this time. I’m a very happy colourist Thanks again ???

  10. Misty Rowsell

  12. Paula

    Congrats to the winners! Enjoy! 🙂

  13. Kristin

    congrats to all winners. I do wish they would sell them on I hope they do soon.
    I would buy some for sure for a budget price pencil and great gift ideas for friends new to colouring. 🙂
    I am constantly running out of some colours (spring green!!!) in my good set to be able
    to replace them with a cheaper option would be awesome.

  14. Reva S.

    CCongratulations Winners! Enjoy all that lovely color! Now some sad news folks, Amazon is all sold out of the Colour Rush pencils. And they say they do not know if they will ever get them back. I was to late to buy a set, they have some pencils that are Micador but they are pre the Color Rush Stage. However, we can hope that the seller is so pleased with the sales, maybe there will be stock again soon!

  22. Lana

    Congratulations to the lucky winners!
    Though I didn’t win, I was happy to receive 25% discount and hurried to Micador store. And they offered also 25% Mother’s Day discount! Oh, if only I could find out how to combine these two discounts into 50% off! Or maybe that was impossible…
    Anyway, this discount really helps to mitigate shipping fee damage. Thank you, Micador.
    And thank you, Peta!

  23. Chris Sadler

    You should be getting commission on all products you work with Peta. I’ve just spent about £35.00 getting the pens and pencils this morning. LOL. At least I was able to order through Amazon which I couldn’t before so YEAH! Many thanks as usual, you need more followers. You’re the best out there and don’t rubbish adult colourists. A lot of work produced is outstanding and all that talent would still be hidden if not for your blogs and videos, so thank-you.


  24. Melissa K

    FYI to those in the US. Amazon has these in stock now with Prime shipping so they have them in a US warehouse now!! No long wait even to get them. I hope to be coloring with these on Monday! 🙂

  25. Lo

    Congratulations to all the winners. Enjoy those great pencils. Thanks to Peta and Micador too.
    I’m learning so much from you Peta.
    I purchased their metallic pencils and I love them. So soft to use and gorgeous colours.
    I’m very fortunate in that I have many brands and now I want to add their coloured pencils to my collection,
    I’m addicted to colouring pencils and books now ?

  26. Lucy Mendes de Moura

    Dear Peta,

    I’m sorry but unfortunately only today (may,20) I was able to check your site for the winner of the Micador contest. I was excited to find my name in the list, but then I learned that an e-mail was sent to the winners with instructions on how to receive the prize. I checked my e-mail but found nothing and thought that maybe the Lucy in the list wasn`t me, but at the same time began to wonder if that e-mail couldn`t have dropped in my junk box which is emptied every week…
    So, I would like to be sure if I am really the lucky one or not. If it`s the case I ask if you could kindly resent the e-mail with the instructions. I`ll be checking my e-mails daily from now on.
    I thank you for your attention.

    1. Lucy

      Hi Lucy,

      So sorry – the winning Lucy was me 🙁

      Received them today – they are amazing. Thankyou so much again Peta!

  27. Diana Behne

    Hello from South Carolina, USA
    Just wanted to let you know that I recently purchased a 36 pc set of
    Micador ColouRush Pencils through Amazon. What a surprise! There
    were only two sets left so I immediately placed my order. My cost
    was $23.99 for the pencils, shipping cost is between $7 and $12.00,
    there were no taxes added. I hope many others will be able to place
    orders in the future.

  28. Heather Wilson

    Thanks Peta to you and Micador for the contest , I ordered two sets of pencils and yes the shipping was more than the pencils, but 34 dollars to Canada in less than a week, awesome service, the pencils are great! So smooth for a budget pencil!

  29. Ysabel

    Congrats all winners!!!!
