Nearly every single art instruction book recommends these pencils. This is for a number of reasons: they are relatively cheap in the artist's grade pencil shop, they are super-soft and super-blendable and in most places (not here in the UK though) you can get them very easily and in open-stock - if you live in America. Prismacolours are wax-based pencils.

Now, the pencils are good: strong pigment, buttery soft and very easy to blend. I can see why they are the number 1 choice in books. Cost are cut in the presentation though. The pencils look bog-standard. The writing is mismatched (possibly a reflection of these being readily available in open-stock leading UK stockists to create their own collections for sale), they smell a bit odd (sickly sweet) and they come in plastic trays that interlock to fit into the very standard tin. If you don't interlock these just so, then you can't get the lid on.The pencils are self-coloured, matching the core.

But...and it's a big BUT, we are concerned with the core and the Prisma's core is a delight. Particular favourites are Clay Rose and Black Grape.

Until you go to sharpen them. I have gone from using expensive battery-operated sharpeners to hand held little metal ones and still the pencils core fails to remain intact. I get about 60-70% use out of the pencils due to breakage. It is very frustrating.

I bought these pencils because most of the coloured pencil books seem to be by American authors, who mainly use American Prismacolor pencils. I got fed up with trying to match my Faber Castell polychromos coloured pencils (which are readily available in the UK) to the colours mentioned in American coloured pencil books.

Unfortunately, Prismacolor pencils do not seem to be readily available in the UK as open stock, so if you want to replace odd pencils or add to your collection to make up the full set, you would pay a fortune in postage as you're ordering from the USA. For this reason I wish I'd gone the whole hog and just bought the entire set at the start.

The Prismacolor pencils are softer than the Faber Castell polychromos I normally use, and you cannot get such a sharp point on them. The Prismacolours wear down relatively quickly and quite a few seem to be broken inside when I sharpen them. It's only the fact that most UK books seem to focus on botanical drawing and not pets (which the USA books cover) that made me buy these pencils, as I really prefer the FC polychromos.

Prismacolour are a very good pencil to lay down and manipulate and have good quality pigment loads. Populare with manyh CP artists and nearly all how-to books, especially ones by US authors will use these.
The problem is they skimp on other areas. Firstly the wooden barrels are really really thin. only about a mm and they split and are difficult to sharpen. They offer so little protection to the pigment strip that it breaks inside and then you waste a lot by repeated sharpening. The far end of the barrel is open and sometimes when the pencil gets smaller the lead oozes out of the back end. Once this has happened it becomes unusable and individual replacements are hard to source.
With this fragility in mind one would expect them to pack them tightly and safely but nope. Another area where they skimp is on the packaging. Although they do come in a tin there are 3 trays and they are so flimsy to handle and offer little protection. As you lift out a tray the pencils fall out. This is not good with how fragile the strips are and how thin the barrtels are.

This set of pencils with excellent blending quality renewed my artist-wife's enthusiasm for fine work. We are both over 70 years old.

These coloured pencils are one of the best sets, the only downside is that they are prone to breaking because they are too soft! Therefore they need sharpening more frequently to maintain a sharp point. I use them in conjunction with Faber Castell polychromos coloured pencils.
