Prismacolor Colored Pencils
We have used these colored pencils for years. They are wonderful, with soft thick leads in a spectrum of vivid, blendable colors. Pencils work smoothly and colors are lightfast and waterproof. These are the pencils we prefer for use with nature or history coloring books or as a drawing/sketch medium in art. Professional quality pencils, they are also more expensive than the hard-leaded colored pencils you may have used as a child. Once you try them, you'll see (and feel) the difference!
