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.

They do make a wonderful pencil but if I am going to use OMS I like the Koh-i-noor better granted not as many colors as they only come in a 24 pack! Great links!

I love my prismacolor pencils. I've never used OMS. Instead, I use the Debbie S method of layering lots of colors. And, I cheat by using a foundation of marker ink. Like, I'll color the strawberry with red marker then go back in with pinks and red prismacolor pencils.
