What type of pencils do you recommend for doing link a pix  in color?  Most colored pencils don't have erasers.

If you're looking for inexpensive ones - Crayola does make an erasable colored pencil set.  They may be slightly difficult to find until the stores get their school supplies restocked, but they are available.

I like the mechanical pencils with like-colored erasers. They can be found at verybestsupplycompany.com.

I'm still fairly new to picture logic puzzles and so far have only done the B&W ones. I didn't even realize that they made erasable colored pencils. For those of you who have used the erasable colored pencils, do you find that the erasers dry out like they do with graphite pencils? I always have a pencil top eraser on my pencil because of that issue and am curious if you think other erasers would work with the colored pencils.

The best eraser that I have ever come across, and which every artist I know swears by, is the white Staedtler Mars plastic eraser.  It's rectangular, easily fits in an adult or child's hand, and works on almost every kind of pencil.  A little expensive, but I've found them on sale a lot in almost every art supply and office supply store, often in three-packs.  They last a long time, too.  Not quite as handy, perhaps, as the eraser at the end of the pencil, but I've never had one dry out on me, not even when left in the sun.  Well worth the money, IMHO
