Alas my $20 Staedtler's win out yet again.
My understanding is that Prisma quality has really dropped in the last few years. If you look at the pencil you will notice a lot of the pencils core's are not perfectly centered. I had not noticed this until Lachri (youtube) pointed this out. This is one reason why you will have some pencils that really break over and over again and are extremely hard to sharpen. This applies to all their pencils. And if you find defective pencils and report it to the company they won't do anything about it. So word of warning there.
These are VERY smooth colored pencils. Like colorful butter on paper. And they are by FAR the best watercolor pencils I've ever used. They are so water soluble, you can't even see the pencil strokes when you are done. It looks like a painting; not a colored pencil, slightly painted mess. They blend incredibly well, both wet and dry, and if you are an adult coloring enthusiast, gradient effects are VERY easy to achieve by just running a little color along one edge of your section, then using a wet paintbrush to draw the color across. You can also use the shavings to paint with; just dip a wet paint brush in the shaved off lead and you have a more traditional watercolor look AND you save waste! They match seamlessly with the regular Prismacolor colored pencils and markers, so you can have a variety of effects in your coloring and not get bored.
Since you'll be adding water to your coloring pages, I suggest you put a piece of paper between the page you are working on and the one behind it; sometimes it can bleed through and ruin the page behind it.
As always with Prismacolor colored pencils, these are incredibly soft. Care needs to be taken when sharpening or you will break a lot of lead and say a lot of words that will embarrass your grandma. I like a regular, no frills, Sanford sharpener. I find the fancier ones tend to break the lead more often and dull a lot faster. Best to keep it simple in my experience.
These will blend with your other Prisma Pencils. They will work in coloring books if you are using blending markers like Copic or Spectrum Noir so that the water doesn't mess up non water color paper. Or I suggest printing onto water color paper your design of choice. You can also try putting a thin gesso over coloring book pages to water color with, but you will need to learn to apply gesso in a delicate way.
For artist sketches, and water color journals these are awesome. I do feel that Prismacolor has quality control issues that are well known in the art community at this point, and hope that they can get their pencils back to their former premium states so we don't have broken lead, and cracking wood.
The colors are extremely bright and beautiful, and are easily layered.
I would recommend these.
