Unusable rock masquerades as pencil
By Cody, Illustration Student
Comments about Prismacolor Col-Erase Pencils:
I bought the Non-photo blue pencil in this line. What I received appears to be a hard blue rock encased in wood. It does not want to give off pigment unless you really push hard - as in hard enough to gouge the paper! If I go just light enough to not gouge the paper I cannot see any blue lines at all. On top of this, if I try to ink over the lines it acts as a resist. Ink skips right over its waxy surface. For me, this was completely unusable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great to sketch in line drawing
I wanted a colored pencil to lightly sketch my line drawing in preparation for colored pencil painting. It erases easily and allows me to map out my sketch and color. It is not the quality of pencil of artist grade pencils. However, It is exactly what I expected and fits my purpose exactly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
prismacolor usually means a good standard

I would buy this product again and again
great product and great value
Awesome colored pencils for sketching
When I looked up erasable colored pencils on Google this product was the most popular and probably the only product that came up. Knowing the brand Prismacolor I wasn't surprised, I've used their colored pencils many times even along with their markers. These Col-Erase colored pencils are fantastic, they erase quite well and make sketching a lot more colorful. The variety of colors these pencils come in is decent and I haven't any complaints to make I just really enjoy them.
Good product, great price
Prismacolor pencils are typically super expensive; over twice this price. They are well worth their normal value, so this is a steal

I couldn't understand the appeal of an erasable colored pencil until I got into sketching on toned paper. Using two contrasting shades is the perfect way to lay down an undersketch. Red and blue are popular in online video tutorials but I've found Terra Cotta and Violet to be the best combination on toned Tan paper. I do wish there were more colors. Bright yellow isn't terribly useful in an erasable pencil, but a french gray would be divine for toned Grey paper.

I love these
By Yade Vanian
I like to draw with these ones. They are so soft and easy to erase. I tend to erase a lot so these pencils dont leave marks. The light gray one is my favorite. This is a most have for any portrait artist or cartoonist.

Luckily, I only purchased three of these pencils to try out and am glad I did not purchase the entire 24 pack set as I was initially going to do. These pencils do not erase. In fact, if you own the Prismacolor Verithins they look exactly like them. They erase the same amount off the paper as Verithins which is most, but not all, still leave color on your paper and are the same width circumference as them as well. I think they just smacked an eraser on the end of Verithins, changed the name, and marketed them erasable. I already have the entire set of 36 Verithins and they perform the same - had I known this I would have used my money elsewhere with Blick. Don't waste your money.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that these pencils didn't perform as you expected, and we're happy to assist you with a return. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Agents who will be reaching out to assist you.
Nice for Sketching, If Used Lightly
By The Perpetual Novice
I got one of these in light blue to try out as a sketching pencil; I thought it might be a fun change up from plain old graphite. I was right, for once: I really enjoy using the light blue as the first layer for a drawing. I have a heavy hand, though, so I have to watch that I don't layer it too thick. If you press very hard, it does become more difficult to erase, but that applies to pretty much any sketching pencil. As long as you keep the application light, you should be able to go back with the Col-Erase's eraser and get rid of any lines you don't want. I'm definitely thinking about buying more of these at some point, just to add a little more color to my sketching.
