If you have been drawing since you were old enough to hold a pencil, then you would understand that you are only as good as your equipment. Whether your talent lies in shading, contouring, or sketching, having the right pencils to put thought to canvas can really impact your technique and style.
When you want the best quality tools to get you to create masterpieces good enough to hang in the Louvre Museum, you need Prismacolor pencils.
What’s so good about Prismacolor pencils?
Prismacolor pencils are made with wax, so the ability to blend the colours right on the page is a wonderful benefit. You are also able to polish a drawing until it looks like a photo. Best of all, you can erase if and when you make a mistake. It’s the vibrant colours, ease of colouring, and creamy texture that makes Prismacolor pencils the number one choice for serious artists.
Available in watercolour and regular, they are a little bit more expensive than other pencil brands, but they are worth every penny for the results you get.
How to use Prismacolor pencils
Whether you are an amateur or a working artist, Prismacolor pencils or artist pastel can be used in a number of ways. From a large, fun project with the family or a single project for a more serious assignment, there are a few techniques and tips to ensure your drawing looks just how you imagined it to be. Use Soft Core coloured pencils for optical and physical blending that look similar to glazing techniques in oil paintings. Use Verithin pencils when you need to work on intricate details and crisp edges.
