Prismacolor Premier Soft Core Colored Pencil, Sharpener and Blender Pencils
Explore The Soft Side!
Thick cores of color last long to bring bold statements to life, while soft leads make them the best tool to blend in or shade away. They’re vivid and intense in one stroke and subtle and soft in the next, making them perfect for any project, big or small. Smooth coverage and a wide array of colors to choose from make it easy to find a soft spot for these premium pencils.
Not So Harsh - Blender pencil
Bring the colors in your artwork to life with this non-pigmented, wax based pencil. Perfect for blending and softening edges of colored pencil artwork without altering your palette.
Get on Point with Pencil Sharpener
The life of an artist is never, ever dull. Make sure you’re ready with perfectly sharpened pencils. You will be equipped for anything with the two different blades on this sharpener. One blade is for sharpening a wide point while the other blade is for sharpening a thin point. The black, yet transparent body of this sharpener allows you to see when the sharpener is full.
Bring out the soft side of any illustration, create effortless blends and ensure your coloring pencils have the perfect point with the Prismacolor Premier Soft Core Colored Pencils, Blender Pencils and Pencil Sharpener Bundle. Inside the box you’ll find 48 colored pencils featuring creamy cores that are the artist’s choice for blending, shading and layering. Prismacolor adult coloring book pencils have pigments of unmatched quality and leads that are strong enough to be sharpened to a precision point. That means you can effortlessly switch between powerful lines, delicate blends and silky shadowing. Your Prismacolor coloring book pencil set also comes with two Premier blender pencils and a pencil sharpener. The colorless blender is ideal for softening edges and laying down texture. And thanks to its colorless wax-based formula your blends remain dazzlingly intense. The colored pencil sharpener Features two different blades, one for a fine point, the other for a wide point so you’ll always have the right level of sharpness for your art projects.

Top customer reviews
so first of all it is AMAZING soft , blend easily and the result is great . about the breaking issue honestly I sharpened many colors of the set many times and it didn't break not even once .
a tip before you start using your set take a hair dryer and try to move the heat all over the pencils then leave them for 15 to 30 minutes to cool down . this way you will avoid any breaking issues while sharpening your pencils .
I definitely recommend prismacolor pencils for anyone who loves to draw
If you are having challenges with sharpening them there is a you tube video about it and how you should always turn the pencil, not the sharpener, in the same continuous direction. Don't be wobbly or rotate back and fourth. There were even explanations on how many you should put into an electric sharpener and then manually sharpen one because they overheat and break the leads! Even to follow up a couple of colored pencils that have been sharpened with a graphite one to lubricate the gears again! Wow, I had NO Clue why electric sharpeners seemed to sometimes work and then not.. It makes perfect sense now! (Very important to know if you have an entire set that needs to be sharpened like the Verathins... )! There were also recommendations regarding pencils that have leads that seem to be broken within, warm them up in the sun a little bit before you sharpen.. You'll have a whole new solid lead from within on e the wax melts together.. Problem Solved!
I've included a picture of the Verathins 36 count set and a 48 count set of Marco Raffine for anyone curious of the differences. There are pictures of the 50 count Prang set vs the 50 count Crayola set on the 50 count Prang review of mine. I provided a picture of the colors in the 132 count set in the last picture. The entire template is colored, just some of the colors aren't showing up well in the picture. FYI
* If you're a professional artist that requires multiple shades of one color, the set of 150 colored pencils is for you, especially if you are working on people's portraits. This set has so many variations of yellows, blues, reds, orange, greens, browns, creams, etc, that it's difficult to distinguish the difference from one shade to the other. For example, this set has 12 shades of gray, so unless you're a professional artist, chances are you will not use them all.
* If you're not a professional artist but you want a set of amazing, great quality colored pencils for school, arts and crafts, coloring books, or any other project, I recommend purchasing a smaller set. I believe that a set of 48, or at the most 60 colors, is more than adequate. Prismacolors are easy to blend so by combining colors you'll be able to achieve the colors you need/want.
* If you purchase the 48 or 60 color set and you want a color not in the set, Prismacolor Premier Soft Core Colored Pencils are also sold individually, so you can buy any additional colors you need.
It is less expensive buying a few additional colors, than buying the big set and not using 30-40% of the colors in the set.
*** If yo want to save money, review the 2 pictures I posted and you'll notice there's not much variation between some colors ***
These pencils are of the highest quality. They come in a gorgeous box, stacked up 3 high, and well organized. I do wish the plastic base level of each set of pencils was of harder more durable material, but eh. It works. There are no duplicate colors, just shades of similar colors. The outer box is beautiful, durable, and high quality.
I was also able to use the Prismacolor pencil sharpener with these pencils. It was fine, not the greatest match of pencil to sharpener, but I'm still experimenting on that front.
When you color with these, you apply just enough pressure as if you were writing. The color comes out rich and beautiful. Loose powder from the pencil will come off but it's minimal, blow it away and move on. All the colors are gorgeous. I noticed also that the color is as close as it gets to the pencil color itself.
Below is the first use of these colors in one of my favorite Adult Coloring books by Blue Star. The creative energy emerging from using the pencils and coloring in peace is a feeling you would want to repeat. Enjoy and don't go cheap when it comes to your art and creativity. I LOVE Prismacolor.
Update: March 12th
I am soooo frustrated with Prismacolor pencils - the lead BREAKING again and again after sharpening using their own CRAPPY pencil sharpener, and also another one, which leads me to believe it is the pencils themselves. I spent 20 minutes sharpening pencils tonight and they broke over and over. I'm reducing my rating to TWO-star from what I had hoped would be a permanent raving FIVE star. If you can't sharpen them long enough to use them, what good are they?!
Update: July 19th
I'm going up to 4-star rating on the Prismacolor pencils again, why? Because the issues from March were ENTIRELY the fault of the Prismacolor CRAPPIEST-EVER manufactured pencil sharpener. I am shocked they are risking their brand with such a piece of garbage but alas, the pencils are good. I bought 3 new pencil sharpeners. Here's are the 3 sharpeners that I recommend and use all the time: Portable Battery Operated Electric Pencil Sharpener Best for Office School Teachers or Coloring as well as Laneco Heavy Duty Electric Pencil Sharpener, Battery Or Adapters Operated, Including Replacement Blades, Great For Classroom, Office, School, Kids, Adults And High Volume Use and last but not least, my most favorite: X-Acto Model KS Table- or Wall-Mount Pencil Sharpener (1031)
