I use coloured pencil for my art. I own Faber Castell Polychromos, and Caran D'Ache Pablo artist pencils, and whilst browsing other brands, I came upon Prismacolor Premier. I nipped onto YouTube, and it seemed like everyone was using them, and raving about them, and quite frankly, I was getting fed up hearing people going on about "how smooth" they are, and "how buttery" they are, and " the best pencils ever had" etc.. I couldn't sleep for wondering what they're REALLY like. Then I read about the persistent problem of breaking lead, and how they were impossible to sharpen, but they were still fab! So I put myself out of my misery and bought a small set. I was VERY nervous of them, but when I started to use them, this is what I found... They are exceptionally smooth, They are sooo buttery! And they are now ranked as one of my favourite pencils I own ( Polychromos may still be number one) I was really scared to sharpen them, but I haven't had one breakage so far. They really are lovely. Now the downside for me, which isn't much. Firstly, the look of them. They haven't got a sealed end, as with other brands. I had a couple in the set with a few gouges in the shafts, and the printing on the pencils are not uniform. Most of the pencils have silver writing, but a couple have black writing. None of which bothers me. I liked the pencils so much, I invested in this 150 set. I felt very extravagant, but delighted when they arrived (which was within 4 days) in the entire box, I think the colours are beautiful. It includes 3 neon colours, which are amazing, but probably won't use, and one pencil has a slight hairline crack running down the entire length of the pencil, I've sharpened it with no problems up till now. I use a staedtler pencil sharpener which collects all the shavings.Read more ›

i bought these a while ago and i must say I'm really happy with these pencils. definitely worth the price. Im an illustration student and i needed a good set of pencils for my work. their oil based which makes them smooth and easy to blend. Really good for portraits. I don't like the box it comes in, you have to hold it flat when you transport it because all the pencils will fall out.

I also purchased the prismacolor pencil sharpener because of the soft core pencil. if you use a normal sharpener you wont get anywhere, they snap all the time.

but over all i have produced loads of pieces with these and I've been proud of the outcome every time. Best paper to use with these pencils is bristol board because of the smooth texture. Easier to build up layers.
Ive attached pictures of my work with prisma. Hope this has helped future buyers.

I was delighted to finally own a full set of the Premier after testing three singles.

It's important to note these are the ones manufactured in Mexico, changing the quality of the pencil and the width of pencil ever so slightly. The originals are nicer however very hard to get hold of as singles and I haven't seen a set at all. Despite these feeling cheaper to their predecessors and in comparison to Faber Castell Polychromos, they are still every inch a wonderful pencil. I use them for art and colouring regularly, getting used to the difference blending with a wax to an oil.

These are wax based pencils and allow for amazing blending abilities, laying down colour vividly and well on a range of smooth and toothy paper. Some cheaper wax pencils don't lay down well, these are very creamy and easy to use. If you're not used to wax pencils ... persist, I did and I love them. It always takes some time getting used to a new pencil brand, especially if you aren't a full time artist.
Being wax they do wear down faster than my oil pencils, however it is easy to buy single stock online and amazon often do great deals on some of the smaller sets.
People often complain about pencil tip breakage - this is something I was deeply concerned about before buying my own. There really is no need from concern - at least from my experience of both my single and these. Find a sharpener that suits you .. I've tested many and my favourite is the TGAAL - using the number 1 setting keeping the tip short and protected but still are a fine point. I've had one breakage so far and this happens to my other pencils too sometimes.
The blending ability allows you to make a whole new range of colours from what you already have.
The colour choice is one of the largest out there.

Prismacolor used to be the best that a coloured pencil artist could get, but since they moved production their quality has suffered to the point that I won't be buying them again. My current collection will gather dust. They are impossible to sharpen with either hand held sharpeners or electric sharpeners without breaking the cores over and over again. In recent pieces, I have reduced pencils by half, just by sharpening them to get a sharp point with the cores breaking every time. It's hugely frustrating and that's why I will not be buying Prismas again. It's a shame because their core, when it does work, is one of the best coloured pencil you can get. But there's plenty of other fantastic pencils out there that don't continually break. Shame on you Sanford.
