If you know what you're looking for then good pencils are important. For instance, the lead has to be strong and not break throughout the pencil if you drop it. The pencil lead has to be soft enough to get good coverage and must be blendable with other colors. Crayola, for instance, makes really bad brittle pencils. . . if you drop one, the lead is usually broken all the way through the pencil and you'll be sharpening the tip often.
Now I didn't want to buy my little one Prismacolors because of the price. But, I didn't want to buy her bad pencils like Crayola or RoseArt just because of the price. I remembered how high quality Prang watercolors were and thought I'd look to see what they made in pencils.
These are so excellent. I would say they are AS good as the expensive Prismacolors. no kidding. They are wonderful pencils with beautiful vibrant color, strong-- the lead is the perfect hardness/softness (what would you call this?). And, they are really inexpensive which is a huge surprise.
We bought the set of 48 but was sent a set of 50-- the 48 set with 2 bonus pencils.
I would recommend these for school and home and, if you are thinking of trying a new pencil for professional work, I'd recommend them for that, too. I am not a colored pencil artist, but I have used pencils professionally and I just cannot see any difference in these and the Prismacolor.Read more ›
PROS: Colored Pencils come pre-sharpened.
A good compromise between hard-leadedness; i.e., using the tip of the lead (more accurately, "core" or "color core") to draw solid lines versus shading ability (using the side of that core in a dashed, notched, hooked or swirling motion designed not to leave the strongest possible hue but allow more texture and subtlety).
Sharpens well but USE A HAND SHARPENER, even a cheap two-holer! You'll quickly get the hang of sharpening techniques with such a simple tool: center the core and use a gentle touch for harder tip and little side cedar (thus reducing shading efficacy), or apply more pressure, perhaps in a larger-than-necessary hole (throwing the pencil-sharpening a little out of round for more exposed core on the side).
Good color palette, works harmoniously with itself.
Round barrels are easier on the finger than the more traditional "woodcased" (hexagonal) style of pencil.Read more ›
Twelve- and twenty-four count colored pencils aimed at grammar school kids and up are pretty much a staple now. These Prangs are a little more "mature" (deeper-hued, less vivid) in color than the Crayola's I've seen, though still any twelve-pack will be restricted to primaries, secondaries, and a few neutrals. If crayons were moods, I would count Cra-Z-Art colored pencils the most incorrigibly optimistic, followed with lessened degrees of vividness by Crayola and RoseArt. To the "right" or more realistic side of the divide I would put Prang, along probably with Col-Erase and Mercur. In other words, the Prangs in my experience have a higher "veri-simillitude" (corresponding-to-reality) quotient than many equivalent Crayola. Crayola's evergreen shade looks more like a dark-green leafed tree, while the evergreen of these Prangs looks much more like pine needles to me. For little kids, especially in settings that stress conformity (the second-grade Required Supplies sheet comes to mind), the purchaser might want to go with the flow if teacher has mandated a more kiddie-oriented brand.Read more ›
