Sanford Prismacolor Premier
Verdict: These are wonderful pencils to use, but their soft nature means that they do not hold a point for long, especially on coarser drawing surfaces.
I tend to use them for applying delicate layers of transparent colour over detail created with Polychromos.
Although they are a mid range pencil in terms of price, for artists outside the USA the cost (including shipping) will be similar to that of Polychromos.
Number of colours:
Soft (Can break with vigorous use or sharpening)
Colour name & number on pencil. (However, they are sold unsharpened, so it is important to sharpen the opposite end to retain colour ID
Price (single pencil)
$2 (approx) shipping from the USA adds substantially to the price.
