I’ve taken delivery of 2 sets of (150) Prismacolor pencils that I ordered from the US. Each box is adorned with an example of the wonderful cp work of my good friend, Ester Roi. These sets look so good that it will be a shame to use them! One is destined for my next 2 cp classes, the other for myself.
Don’t you just love boxes of new pencils! Having to choose from 150 colours is a real treat, and I’m looking forward to trying out the 18 new colours that have been added to the Prismacolor collection.
I work with Prismacolors because they are the best I have ever used and they offer such a great range of colours, but that’s where the association ends.
I have received no support from their website. I am not allowed to post examples of my work, as I understand are any other artists outside the US. Why?
My emails have had the standard replies, but I’ve never been sent an explanation to my requests to have my work featured.
If I could find a better product I’d use it without hesitation. I understand Luminance pencils are highly regarded, but they aren’t available in Australia.
In my cp classes I use and praise Prismacolor pencils, and I’m sure that I have helped increased sales in Tasmania and Far North Queensland. I get no support from the manufacturers, but I recommend what I use and that’s Prismacolors first, Polychromos second and Coloursoft, third.
It’s obvious that there aren’t enough units sold in Australia. We are a small nation and cp art isn’t as popular as the painting mediums. The funny thing is that if people like me had more support from manufacturers, there would certainly be an increase in the sales of their products.
