Just like there is a big difference in the smoothness of application between quality and discount eye liner pencils, (the guys out there will just have to take my word on that) there is also a big difference in how the color lays down between true artists colored pencils and colored pencils designed to be “good enough”. Good enough for color coding charts or school projects, but not designed for blending or having good color saturation. ~ Jackie Mattingly



A Rose of 5 colors

Prismacolor Premier have a softer than average core that can give you multiple shades of the same color depending on how hard you press and it blends from one color to another with minimal technique or practice. It can give you superior saturation of color no matter what the tone range.


Prismacolor Verithin


The down-side of the Premier Pencil having such a soft core is… if you like crisp details and sharp edges you will need some hard-core pencils as well. The Prismacolor Verithin Pencils, comes in several size sets or you can buy a few individual pencils in the colors you would use the most. These pencils will give you an edge that will impress.


Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener


Additionally, the soft core on the Prismacolor Premier Pencils means you need to use a helical blade sharpener (either manual or electric) READ MORE HERE ABOUT HELICAL BLADE SHARPENERS




The Prismacolor Verithin Pencils hold a much sharper point for detail work and lettering.

My Pencil Choice! Overall, the Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencil is one of my preferred brands of colored pencils. I feel they are worth the price, and now Amazon has sale prices for well below half of its normal price. Sounds like an excellent time to buy yourself a Christmas Present before the stock runs out ! Have a Blessed Day ~ Jackie Whedbee-Mattingly

    Did you know that you can fix your Prismacolor Pencils? Colored pencils are very fragile & the core can break if dropped. It’s not unusual to keep sharpening down to a stub just to find a part of the core that isn’t broken. Well, STOP!! If you own Prismacolors, get out your hair dryer & heat up the pencil all along the shaft. They are soft enough to repair themselves! Gone are the days of sharpening down to nothing! This tip is one of the reasons spendingvthe extra money can be worth it!

      Heidi, Thanks for sharing this “Hair Dryer helps melt the broken pencil back together” tip!

    Primsacolors really do live up to the hype. I find that a lot of people enjoy the softer pigment because it is far easier to blend, but it can also lead to problems – I’ve heard stories about people in hotter climates actually having their pencils melt!

      ColorGaia (I’m not sure what your first name is??) thanks for your input with the Prismacolor Premier. Yes, their Verithin pencils are harder and better for outlining, but not blending. Hmm, “pencils “melting”… In Alaska we only have problems with supplies “freezing” when left in our cars!
      Have you done any of the projects/activities here on the website?

    My son just bought me some for my coloring books and I haven’t tried them yet since I use Crayola’s and gelpens now. Can’t wait to try the set which I’m sharing with the other half who does artwork as well. Excited!

      Kimberly, how exciting! Opening new pencils is like getting a new package of socks, can’t wait to “try them on” LOL. Let us know how your new set feels!
