My life is an interesting story. I am an artist at 40. Got to start somewhere. Reproductions and cartoons are my favorite.
I had started with store bought brand that was a step better than a pack of dollar store pencils.
My collection has grown over the last year and now includes this set. I have only tested them and not completely drawn anything out. Once I do I will post a completed drawing.
These are smooth, easy to erase, multiple leads ( hardness'), and easy to sharpen.
Mine came in the tin and all sharpened very well. I had no issues with splintering nor leads breaking.
The Turquoise color of the pencils make it so I can identify these quite quickly in my roll. They have a silver imprint of the hardness/softness at the end of each pencil.
My tin came dented and 1 of the leads is off center. The leads are not all the same size and I see air gaps in the wood which causes pencil breaks.
I loved these pencils before prismacolor decided that quality is not that important.....they r losing business fast! I will be buying a different brand from now on
There is definitely a noticeable difference in the shades between each pencil. The contrast between B's and the H's obviously being the most visible. The contrast among each shade of the B's is the least visible, they are the most similar and hard to distinguish among. The contrast in shade between each shade of the H's is more visible that the contrast between each of the B's. I would like to see more contrast in the B's. I bought a Prismacolor Ebony pencil for darker shading. (See photos)
I will say that I have a few older, warn out, and very used Prismacolor turquoise pencils and they do have a smoother clean finish. These new ones are slightly grainier. That being said, for me, had I not read the reviews I would not have noticed.
I didn't have any problems sharpening my pencils. My lead wasn't off center and didn't contain bubble pockets of missing lead. The wood on my pencils don't chip when I sharpen them.
I bought my daughter a cheaper set of pencils at the craft store called Artist's Loft. I can tell that the Prismacolor pencils are superior to this brand. The Prismacolor lead is smoother than these pencils and erases easier. I've not tried some of the other pencils listed in other's reviews. I will definitely check out the other brands to see how they compare. The Faber-Castell aren't significantly more expensive so if they are leaps and bounds better than Prismacolor I will update my review.
