Prismacolor Lightfast Colored Pencils Set of 12
Prismacolor pencils have brilliant, blendable, permanent colors. Lead texture is soft and provides a smooth "feel" with excellent lay-down of color. These pencils are thick enough that when using a blunt point, larger areas are covered quickly. For beginning artists to advanced professional artists, Prismacolor products are designed for every level of expertise.

    Fantastic color saturation and ease of use January 11, 2011
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Alameda, CA United States  
    These are not the sad colored pencils I grew up with.  These pencils lay down a thick layer of saturated color.  The color goes on smoothly and even blends.  The only downside is that regular pencil sharpeners will destroy these very soft pencils, so take care and use a good sharpener made for colored pencils (there is one on this site, and it makes all the difference in the world--why buy great pencils, then use a sharpener that eats them?).

    We don't even use crayons anymore December 1, 2010
    Reviewer: Paul W Jackson from Oberlin, OH United States  
    I finally took the plunge and ordered Prismacolor pencils for our 5 children.  I had been very hesitant, because I have not had good experiences with (cheaper) colored pencils.  Prismacolor opened up a whole new world for the entire family.  They are easy to use (no more coloring with all your might for a tiny bit of anemic color) and the colors are very rich and vibrant. They are much easier to control than crayons and don't end up in little broken pieces all over the floor.  I wish I hadn't waited so long to pruchase them!

    Excellent pencils! October 26, 2010
    Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    I used these pencils after having been using the cheap regular color pencils.  The difference was not even comparable.  It was amazing how the color stood out.  These pencils draw so smooth, as well, and blend amazingly.  These would be an outstanding gift for your budding artist.  Prisma color pencils will definitely improve your confidence in your drawing.  It really is amazing the difference in the quality of these pencils, and how much improved the end result is.

    These are the best colored pencils ever! October 19, 2010
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    My artistic daughter really loves these pencils.  She is very good at sketching, but always resisted coloring her drawings because she felt that crayons or regular colored pencils ruined them.  She loves how blendable the Prismacolor pencils are and loves how the color goes on.  Now her science notebook is bursting with color.  The case is also very nice.  We highly recommend these!
