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 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.
