    Prismacolor Pencil Questions.

    Hello,

    I have two questions about prismacolor pencils,

    1. Does anyone know what type of prismacolor pencil Feng Zhu and Carlos Hunate use in there first Gnomons DVDs, the ones that can draw light thin lines and also shade really dark. They look great.

    2. I live in the UK and have searched the web and it seems I cannot buy these Prismacolor pencils in this part of the world. Do any of you guys know a good website (US) that I could buy these pencils who also don't mind shipping to the UK.

    Thanks.

    Over here 'Prismacolour' pencils are branded as Berol Karismacolour, but it's exactly the same product. You should find they're pretty widely available.

    Yeah, it took me a while to discover that Karismacolor pencils are just the same as Prismacolors (or near enough as makes very little difference). I bought myself a set, they've proven very useful so far. Loomis also recommends using the Black (935) for sketching, since it doesn't smudge like soft graphite pencils would, and still gives a nice range of value.

    Well I found a place that sells them so I ordered a couple a few hours ago to try them out, but I got this e-mail back

    'Sorry we are now out of stock of the black in the Karisma range and due to the brand having been taken off the market we are unable to re-stock.'


    Anybody know what he is talking about, are krismacolour finished??

    I E-mailed the same guy back and asked why this is, he replied..


    Hi Barry

    Unfortunately Sanford has decided to stop the manufacture of the range completely.

    So far I have not come across any of the other pencils which have the same qualities.

    Cheers

    Kenny

    Aww, crap, say it ain't so!

    That's where I got mine from - is that where you tried? If not, it might be worth a shot - they should have some left in stock. You can buy individual pencils there, too, but I just got the 10-pack when I got mine. Bloody expensive, for pencils, but worth it!
