Welcome to dickblick
Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils are the most popular colored pencils we sell. Each colored pencil features a thick, soft core made from brilliant, light-resistant pigments, to ensure smooth, rich laydown and color saturation.
The colors are easily blended, slow to wear, break-resistant, and waterproof. Each 3.8 mm core is enclosed in a round cedar casing that is lacquered to match the core.
Note — Manual sharpening is recommended for these pencils. Clogging can be prevented in electric sharpeners by periodically sharpening a graphite pencil to keep the blades clean.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Great coloring pencil
By Color me M

Comments about Prismacolor Colored Pencils:
These Prismacolor pencils are great. Order the blick manual sharpener, the lead is made of wax and it is easy to cut too much.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Prisma Color Pencils
from Raymore, MO
Comments about Prismacolor Colored Pencil Sets:
Love them Easy to sharpen to a point. Easy to color in my Adult coloring books. My husband who is retired thought it looked like fun, so I ordered him a new set of his own.
Great pencils for card makers
I use the Prismacolor pencils to color my stamped images for handmade cards. I use Memento ink which does not smear. I have used Gamsol as well as the blender pencils to blend the pencils. Both work well, but I prefer the Gamsol (Gamsol is a GREAT deal here at Dick Blick vs Michaels). The pencils are much more economical for the card classes I teach than the Copics which I use too.
love the pencils, however they do break.

By Heart Art
from Lake Jackson, TX
I love the combo pack of the Prismacolor colored pencils and Strathmore sketchbook bonus. I would give these away to my art students as a reward raffle each semester if I could. :)
By don't have one.
from You already know.
Prismas Premier Pencils are great pencils. These are the ones a lot of artists use. They are soft and provide a lot of color. I use them for coloring pictures. They blend well and are easy to use , the pencils themselves feel nice in the hand. Blick has the full line of these pencils at a great price.
By Art educator
I teach art and use this set as a portable set to bring it with me for my students. It is easy to transport and a great addition to my teaching.
Great value and fast shipping
from Lincoln, NE
Prismacolors are amazing products and they're incredibly expensive everywhere else I looked. But at Dick Blick I saved a huge bundle. And they arrived earlier than expected! I'll always use Dick Blick from now on. 10/10 would shop again!
Good value fast shipping

Had colors in stock super fast shipping
Thought I'd order more of the ones that were getting short.
Since I was ordering I thought I'd get the ones that I use the most. I couldn't be happier with the prismacolor. They go down so easy and creamy I haven't been at this very long but I get lots of compliments. If it wasn't for the information you give and intro to tube I can't believe how much I have learned in such a short time. People are so generous with sharing their knowledge, it makes your project so much more attractive. The emails are always appreciated for the info you share, thank you. No complaints.
