Hi There!

Welcome to an exciting moment of my blog: my 1st guest post. Without further ado…please welcome to the post…*da dum*…Emily Grace.

I have known Emily for eight years. She goes to our church and is a very good friend. In her free time she enjoys archery and horseback riding. I’ll turn it over to Emily now.

hi… Today I will be reviewing… dum dum dum… Prismacolor color pencils! These pencils already get a lot of praise, but I want to just add my 2 cents in…

so pretty…
  1. Why are they so much more expensive than other brands? (I’m lookin at you, Crayola and Roseart  🙂 ) Well, Prismacolor pencils give off a waaayy better pigment and are more vibrant than other brands. They have an almost pastel-like texture. Buying Prismacolors is an investment, but they will last longer than the average brand, and also give a better performance… (i.e. gritty texture) which leads us to my next point…
  2. Blending. Blending. Blending. These pencils are very  good at that.

  3. my one complaint about these is that you have  GOT TO BUY A GOOD SHARPENER. (yeah, if you don’t, they are more liable to break…)

    The ridiculously expensive $6 pencil sharpener.

    Summary: So in the end, here are the pros and cons…

    Pros: awesome pencil, amazing blending, pigment, durability, etc.

    Cons: Expensive. Be prepared to spend your money  😦  $$$ 🙂                                                I would recommend these pencils for ages 11 and up. These pencils are for people who will not waste them:) *mischievous grin*

All in all, these pencils are great.
