An Introduction to Prismacolor Pencil Crayons

Colour Your World With Prismacolour


One of the best things in life is opening up a new package of pencil crayons. Not just any pencil crayons. Prismacolor pencil crayons.

Prismacolor Primier pencil crayons come in packages of 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120 and 132. This pencil crayon is made up of high quality pigment and goes on smoothly.

The Prismacolor Verithin pencil crayon has a hard core, which makes it perfect for outlining and detailing.

The secret to colouring with Prismacolour pencil crayons is in the blending. Prismacolour produces a blending pencil which works very well. If you want to create quickly, without any fuss, then the blending pencil is best suited for you.

For the artist who wishes to spend a considerable amount of time on a stamped image, odourless mineral spirits (OMS) is for you.This liquid is 100% odourless and was developed for thinning mediums and brush clean up. Gamsol can be found in art and hobby stores. You may find a product very similar to Gamsol simply called Odourless Mineral Spirits.

If you use OMS, it is important to stamp your image with Stazon.

Thanks sooo much for this Beth. The first link didnĀ“t work thoug.
This is also the way, that has worked best for me after trying more, but I still think, that I sometimes have a few problems to make it blend nicely? But I probably just have to keep trying, cause I still preffer the pencils from any other mediums. Thanks soo much for always making sooo great lessons for us.
have a great day hun.
Biiig hugs Maryann
