One of the things I discovered whilst reviewing Prismacolor Premier pencils was their inability tobe erased, which can be frustrating when you jump outside the lines. Col-erase pencils are made with a special lead formula that erases effrotlessly with the handy attached rubber on the end. I wasn't expecting much from these pencils after hearing reports of bad colour laydown, low vibrancy and lack of blending capabilities, but I was genuinely surprised and find them to be a great addition to my pencil collection.
The pencils are very light in the hand with a hexagonal barrel to stop them rolling off the desk. They feel nice to colour with but a triangular shaft might have been better, especially on that middle finger callous point (you colourists know what I'm talking about). They sharpen really well, especially if you keep them short and sharp (try the T'GAAL adjustable sharpener on setting 2), and haven't broken or splintered yet. As I always say with new pens and pencils, take advantage of the fact that these are sold in singles and get yourself a few to try before you commit. The 24 pack is only around £20 so they're not too much of an expense if you want to dive in and buy the whole set.
These pencils were given to me in exchange for an honest review. You can find them on Chromacolour.co.uk
