Disclaimer* I received these markers and colored pencils for free in exchange for my fair and honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
The first time I heard of Prismacolor colored pencils was over three decades ago. Just dated myself a bit. Ha ha!
I was in 7th grade Geography and every week, we had to color a map. I had your basic colored pencils. The teacher loved Prismacolor colored pencils and using those pencils was the only way to achieve an A. No matter how well I colored, I could not achieve a grade better than a B. I waited months before convincing my parents to buy me a set from the art store. They finally decided to buy me a set. Happy dance!
Oh, how I loved those pencils. The colors went on so smooth. Light or dark or anything in between, the colors were beautiful. I finally got my A!!!!
Now I had the chance to re-try Prismacolor pencils as an adult, and I felt the same as I did when I was a teenager. The colors are just as alluring as before and work great in adult coloring books. Prismacolor makes all the colors of the rainbow and everything inbetween. The soft core is perfect for blending colors.The color goes on the paper so smooth that you hardly know it’s a pencil.
I was unaware Prismacolor produced markers, as well. The markers were a joy to use. Super fine lined and awesome colors. I think they would be perfect for handwritten invitations or calligraphy.
