I have to tell you that these pencils are a pleasure to work with. I use them mainly for doing biological and scientific illustration, but I use them for other things as well. I was introduced to them by a professional biological illustrator who's guidance was, use only the best. Of the colored pencils I've used over the years, these are the best I've found.
Prismacolor Premier colored pencils have a soft lead, so soft that you need to tread lightly as you apply them, or the lead is easily broken. On the other hand, the soft lead makes these colors much easier to blend once they are on the paper, and allow you to put down your colors layer by layer and produce the effects you are after.
I find that for my work a good companion investment for these colored pencils is an electric pencil sharpener, because a sharp lead allows you to put the color down onto paper with greater precision, and gives better results.
I have used these pencils on a variety of surfaces ranging from drafting velum to mat board to Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Board Pads - 14 x 17, Bristol Pad, 20 sheets, Vellum, and Canson Mitientes 122 Flannel Gray - 19x25 Inch Sheet which comes in many colors, as well as hot press and cold press board, 300 lb. water color paper, and a variety of other art boards.Read more ›
First, the bad. The variety of colors in the 48 count set was fine although I would have liked more yellow or greys and the 2 metallic pencils ( silver and gold) were completely a waste in such a basic set. The pencils were packaged in two flimsy plastic trays which allowed the pencils to flop around in the tin. The pencils now come sharpened - a change from older sets and open stock. Upon opening I did a quick examination of the pencils and I must confirm that indeed the quality control at Prismacolor is in freefall. In the set there were 2 pencils where the pencil barrel had been crushed/chipped before the pencil was painted. I found another pencil where the Prismacolor branding, color name and number were blurred/ distorted in a printing mishap. While Prismacolor pencils fall in the more affordable range of artist quality pencils these production issues are inexcusable.Read more ›
As for the quality of the product, overall... I know from prior experience that PrismaColor Premier pencils are great. They blend well and look beautiful.
Unfortunately, they do have the problem of the core breaking too much, which is frustrating. I'm not sure it can be avoided, though, since they are soft core pencils, after all. To me what's worse is when one of the cores is off center, and it's just a disaster trying to sharpen it, as the lead keeps breaking AND big chunks of the wood keep splitting off. These look alright in that respect but of course I can't be sure yet. And that's rare, anyway (maybe 1 in 30 pencils is like that). If you want something harder, try the Verithin. I don't think the occasional broken core means the pencils are a bad product, and especially not when they're been shipped.
