I'm an artist and I've started a project where I need around 4000 blue and yellow bricks, specifically bricks and plates that are 2x or 1x any length, but the longer the better. Any suggestions on where to find these for the best possible price?
NOTE: I've purchased several used bulk lots on eBay, but on a price per brick I need basis, this isn't very cost effective. I've also gone to the LEGO store, but I you really can't get many larger bricks in those little cups, plus I actually prefer the look of used bricks. Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I don't have a lot of money as I'm a college professor, but I am having my first solo museum exhibition next fall and I'd really like to include this piece. (Sadly, unless you're world famous, museums don't pay a penny for artists materials.)
