Prisma Colored Pencils

 

Pros & Cons of using Prisma Colored Pencils

One day I was inspired to create food art using colored pencils. My first attempt did not turn out that good, but when I tried Prisma colors for the first time, this happened!

Pros

Rich in pigment, easy to layer, easy to blend, and a wide variety of colors to choose from. Also very convenient - you can take this type of medium on the train, car, plane, anywhere really without making much of a mess.

Cons

Expensive. Very expensive. Almost $3 per pencil. Can smear sometimes. Pencils are waxy and don't last very long, especially for larger pieces.

Take home

I will always stick with Prisma colors, but I wouldn't recommend buying an entire set if your only going to do a small project.
