Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils feature thick, soft cores made from brilliant, light-resistant pigments to ensure smooth, rich laydown and color saturation.
The colors are easy to blend, 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.
Manual sharpening is recommended for Prismacolor colored pencils. Clogging can be prevented in electric sharpeners by periodically sharpening a graphite pencil to keep the blades clean.
