Prismacolor Creamy Soft Lead 48-Piece Set
Artist-quality colored pencils for every level of expertise, Prismacolor Pencilsí substantial cores of colorful and creamy soft leads can be both vivid and intense or subtle and soft. Each Prismacolor core is enclosed in a round cedar casing that is lacquered to match the rich core pigmentation.

More Information
Why use colored pencils? Colored pencils are convenient, easy to transport, and practical to work with anywhere. Colored pencils will allow you lots of control so that it is easy to keep your lines clean and precise. Unlike painting, your child can work all day with the vibrant colors of colored pencils without any of the mess.

If you grew up with the same colored pencils I grew up with you may be thinking, "I don't remember colored pencils having particularly vivid pigments." Don't let thoughts of the typical school-quality colored pencils influence you. Those inexpensive pencils are of poor quality with hard, gritty leads. They will not only waste your money, but also your child's time and effort.

Professionals Agree: Prismacolor Is the Best!
Using top-flight colored pencils is a lot like painting with watercolors. Because the pigment is somewhat transparent, the hue of one pencil applied over another will combine visually to create a new hue. Such complex compositions are pleasing to the eye. On the other hand, unmixed colors often convey rawness and lack of subtlety. So where does a mom with little art background go to find a high-quality colored pencil? As with all of our products, the first step was research. No matter where we turned, resource books, art courses, artists, even sales representatives for competing manufacturers, the recommendations were all the same: Prismacolor.

Best Pencils Ever January 1, 2014
Reviewer: Reyne H.  
I have been buying Prismacolors for my kids for at least 10 years. They love the soft leads and beautiful colors. I bought the 48-pencil set for my 15-year old daughter's birthday and the look on her face when she opened them was priceless! She was so excited. Thank you for offering this set at such a great price.

Berol Prismacolor Pencils are the best! November 20, 2012
Reviewer: Mom of 8  
We have used these pencils exclusively for over 20 years. Once you try them you will be dissatisfied with any other brand. These pencils are unique in how the color lays down on all types of paper. We use these pencils for all our drawing needs, for instruction in art. A big set will last several years even in a large family. Well worth every penny! On sale? Do yourself a favor and try them. I promise you won't regret it.
