Great Pencils on a Budget
Comments about Prang Colored Pencils 3.3 mm Core:
I know a lot of color pencil artists insist that you should always buy the best quality pencils when trying to learn how to draw, so you don't get frustrated by inferior quality. Which is good advice. But some people can't afford the "Artist Grade" brands. Others don't want to invest large amounts of money into a hobby they might decide they don't like. That's where I think these pencils are perfect.These pencils are are not "soft" but they are a lot softer and have a higher pigment load than other pencils in this price range. I actually like sketching with these pencils better than some of the "Artist Grade" pencils I own. They hold a good point when sharped and I haven't had many issues with breaking. It takes a bit more pressure to get a good satiation of color on the paper, but I have no problem achieving the colors and values I want. They even work good for basic layering and blending.Now these pencils are not going to be lightfast, but if you are just practicing technique or using them in a sketchbook, they are perfect. I kept a pack of them in my desk at work so I could sketch when we got slow. I attached some of my quick sketches, all of which are completely in Prang colored pencils.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice for the price
from Victorville, CA
Good for adult coloring projects and books. They don't break easily, and they sharpen nicely. I love the Moonlight Blue shade. I gave them 4 stars because you have to press so hard to get a bright and dark effect. I got a set for my husband who is new to adult coloring, and he likes them, but he's always trying to get into my Prismas!! Lol! Even though they say "soft" they are hard, but thats what keeps them from breaking easily. Prang could do better if they expand with more of a selection in color shades.
It is exactly what it says it is
from Atlanta Ga
It's average for a good price. It does ok but I bought them to do simple stuff with and they are perfect for those projects.
Good Product, Good Value
By High School Art Teacher from MO
from Lebanon, MO
I am a high school art teacher on a limited budget and I have several students. I searched Blick for the best deal on color pencils and was a bit skeptical of the Prang brand but after reading reviews I took a chance and am very happy with my purchase. My students started using them this week as we started color theory. They blend well for a lower end pencil. I had some students that achieved nice saturation with time. We used the primary colors to teach blending to achieve a large variety of colors simply using three pencils. I was very happy with the blending results and they were amazed they could make so many colors with three pencils. Very happy with the Prang Class pack. Would definitely recommend for a basic or beginning art class.

These pencils are amazing for the price
from Hacienda Heights, CA
I got these to just see how they would work, having used them long long ago. For less than ten bucks they are an incredible deal. I use Prismacolor pencils most often, but these aren't bad to use right along side of them.
