Prismacolor Colored Pencils are the best on the market. Thick cores of color last long to bring bold statements to life, while soft leads make them the best tool to blend in or shade away. They're vivid and intense in one stroke and subtle and soft in the next, making them perfect for any project, big or small. Smooth coverage and a wide array of colors to choose from make it easy to find a soft spot for these premium pencils. Each 3.8 mm core is enclosed in a round cedar casing that is lacquered to match the core. 12 brilliant colors: blue, green, light green, yellow, skin tone, red, purple, dark blue, black, white, light brown, gray/black.
