Product Review – Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils
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
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.
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.
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
