Arguably the worlds best pencil, Prismacolor are the finest quality pencils around. Made in the USA to a secret formula these pencils are known for their superior pigment load, wax base, ability to blend and strength of colour. They are soft and easily blendable.
i have the entire set of course (which is 132 colours - which we can get in for you!) and mix them in whith other pencil brands...but my Prismas are my 'go-too' pencils.
The Portrait set has a variety of hard to find 'flesh' colours and is a wonderful option if you love to draw faces.
These pencils can also be used by fabric artists, as they can be heat set with a hot iron on fabric which makes them so versitile.
Also available is the Prismcolor brand pencil sharpener which sharpens pencils to a rounded point, these pencils are not designed to be sharpened to a very fine point. For fine lines and detail it is best to use Prismacolor Verithin Pencils.
