Debbie, how are you getting on with these? Question I bought a big tin of Prismacolour pencils but my son dropped them when he collected them from the PO so a lot are broken, not that I will use them all up any time soon!

I see a few offers around on them too.

Cazzy I just lurve my coloursoft pencils - I colour all my images with them, sansador fluid and paper stumps. Smile
They are so easy to blend and do come in a good range of colours. Smile I have got the nice wooden box of 72 pencils. Smile

I have never tried the Prisma's so cannot compare - other say that Prisma's ar more superior to coloursoft but like I said I am thrilled with mine and would be lost without them. Smile Smile

Thank you Debbie, I would probably have got them and not Prisma's but then there are more colours in Prisma's as I bought a tin of 120 colours, and then another 12 to make up the full 132 range, then I got some metallic colours that were extra again.

I do have some Derwent watercolour crayons that were my first tin of these and I love those, the ones I bought later in Hobbycraft are not as good in my opinion.

Wow you did have a great selection Cazzy..Smile

I think it is just a matter of personal choice - what works for one person, doesn't necessarily work for the other. Just the same as die cutting machines - I just love my wizard and it is so robust and easy to use - but others don't like it!!

Well lets face it I am no artist and will probably never get the full use from all those colours! Everyone was raving about them, I hadn't heard of Coloursoft until today and found a post you made about buying them over on UKS.

Cazzy I think perhaps the coloursoft is the UK version and the prisma's are US???
I got mine on offer from Hobbycraft I think??????
