In my zombie state today (I literally was not able to sleep a wink last night!), I managed to walk to the bookstore and splurge on these very very costly colored pencils! Can you imagine colored pencils ever costing a few thousand bucks?! Makes me rethink losing sleep ever again, LOL!
Anyway, no, I haven’t joined the craze on adult coloring books! Not yet at least.
I’m actually taking up Colored Pencil Drawing a couple of hours a day while waiting for DA in school, which is why I was on the lookout for the “Benz” of colored pencils.
After putting in extra hours of hard work, I have it in my hands! Ta-da!!
Three layers of colored goodness! I would have wanted more if it wasn’t so heavy on the pocket!
I can’t wait to try them! Tee-hee-hee!
And so I did!
Which side do you think was done with the Prismacolor?
The left was done a few days back using Pentel Arts Color Pencils Set of 24. Just to compare, I drew the one on the right today with the Prismacolor.
It really is as everyone says! The lead is waxy, which makes coloring and blending a cinch. Originally, I had to color heavily (that it leaves a mark on the next page) to be able to blend the colors but with the Prisma, adding in a few strokes was enough.
The colors seem more vibrant as well, don’t they?
I tried sharpening it also and was so glad that it did not break on the first try!
I did as instructed, holding the pencil with my left hand and the sharpener on the right. I then turned the sharpener, instead of the pencil.
I use a Faber Castell single sharpener for graphite and colored pencils.
Where to Buy?
I got mine at National Bookstore in Greenhiils for P2,130 for the box of 36. When I first checked it out, it was only P1900 something but when I checked back a few days later, it was already P2130! Waaaa! Ahuhuhuhu!
How about you? Are you into coloring as well?
