I have some old rainbow (mulitcolored) pencil leads but would love to get more. Does anyone know where you can buy some?

Thank you for the link Neo. :) I'm looking for a single lead with all those colors in it at once -- so it writes like a rainbow. I didn't see that there.

I'm afraid I don't know where you can get those rainbow leads, which is very unhelpful of me! But I do love the look of these; they look great fun http://www.cultpens.com/i/q/KH28032/koh-i-noor-magic-lead-pencil

Those look really fun to me too!!! I'm sure I'm going to want to get those as well. :)

Pentech used to make something called a Rainbow Stix which was a mechanical pencil with 1.3mm rainbow lead but no one seems to carry them anymore. I haven't even turned one up on Ebay yet.

I hope you find some. That is pretty cool! I have a wooden pencil that does this (I bought it from a museum). When I get home I will see if I can tell who the maker is; perhaps they sell the lead by itself, too.

That's very cool.

I have the wooden pencil with such a lead but a mechanical pencil will be much more convenient.

I had a pencil like this as a kid! Now I want one again!

I've stumbled upon something that strikes me as similar while browsing CultPens.

That's the pencil I have. I wondered if the company made just the leads.

I don't know if the width is correct....http://www.cultpens.com/i/q/KH27972/koh-i-noor-56mm-magic-lead

The lead I'm looking for would fit a mechanical pencil so it would be about .9mm to 1.1 mm

You could put those in a leadholder though, right?

This is an awesome idea!
