150 Prismacolor Premier Soft Core Colored Pencils

My husband is always talking about how amazing Prismacolor colored pencils are. He has a set of 24 he bought years ago. Why are Prismacolor colored pencils so good? They have superior lay down characteristics, blending capabilities, shading characteristics and come in rich saturated colors.  I decided I wanted to put them on my website, but why just put on the 24 pack when I could get the 150 set? I scoured the internet and found the Dick Blick Art Materials website. I had never seen it before. They had everything and really good prices. The best part is they were listed as a official vendor on the Prismacolor website. I decided to give the website a try. They came super fast.

First off I love the box. It comes in a long box with a magnetic lid! This means it will not open up and have pencils spill out everywhere, which happens quite often. The pencils are in trays in individual spots. They come presorted in color order. There are six total trays. The back of the box feature all the color numbers with swatches. I did a YouTube video of all the colors. There is also a swatch chart for all the colors. Click here to sign up to get that chart.

  1. I love this set, and, when I first got it back in 2018, I loved the box, too. Not anymore though. The magnetic closure is not as secure as I'd like. It can open up, and mine has done so several times. The result was about a hundred of my pencils falling to the floor. Fortunately my art room has carpet on said floor. The trays are flimsy, too. They don't hold the pencils in place very well.

    The pencils themselves are great; I could not ask for better pencils at a reasonable price.
    To keep disasters under control, I now work with sub-sets of colored pencils; usually not more than about 40 or so at one time.
