Hannah Shoe: I've heard that holding a Prismacolor pencil over a flame melts the wax
core back together if dropped one too many times. Can anyone tell me if
this is true?
Tim Teatro: I've never used anything I've liked better than my KUM sharpeners.
Sandy Orozco: This changes everything---EVERYTHING
Thank you so much for this
crsseventyone: One of the most overlooked details is how to sharpen correctly.
Merry Qu: I heard on some websites that you need like a high-tech pencil sharpener
for Prismacolors or it'll break. Is it true? And if it is, what kind of
sharpener should I buy?
31T3 1337 N008: Well... that was enlightening, to say the least.
Joyce van Kan: Oooh okay ! Thanks so much !
Wendy Legeret: This has to be the best advice ever! Thank you so much! For Christmas, I
received Prismacolor colored pencils and started to sharpen them. One of
the color's lead began breaking. Now that I have your advice, the
sharpening is working great!
266sasuke: Prismacolor pencils PWN other products!! :D
babescraftroom: I bought mine over 20 yrs ago, and now I know why they cost so much. I am
now trying to find them because I have taken up some interest in mixed
media. I want to thank you for doing this video it is very informative and
I will remember not to rock my pencils..lol..
Lola Marks: I thought just because I had the Prisma bullet sharpener I was good, but my
Prismas ALWAYS break. I'm so glad you made with video and I'm SO going to
try this technique!
Karlitha Pre: @Me4EverNatalie Hahha thats alot oc work waiting for u pal!
Blick Art Materials Videos: Yes, this technique can be applied to any pencil you are hand-sharpening to
Upcomeing artists: Where can i get my set of prismacolor.
sonikdude49: are these good for a novice artist like me i do a lot of shading and
Blick Art Materials Videos: Blick Art Materials sells all the products in all of our videos. Please see
our website by clicking in the link within the video description.
John: I got the 132 prismacolor set. You have no idea how long it took me to
sharpen all of them. When you sharpen a mass of pencils, it doesn't matter
how you sharpen them. You throw technique out the door.
Queen ofCool: Can you ship it to the philippines? I want to have a set of those
daliamonica: Great video
Aldo Stevenson: I am glad i saw this video
Joe Honea: I have yet to use this technique shown, but i will certainly try it! I
found that sharpening a bit at a time & then using, prevents the breakage
that occurs during use (which reeeeally pisses me off)--I use the pencils
to color after woodburning and lead breakage seems to always have the knack
to occur right at the moment it's in that persnickity place that u need to
b sooo careful...grrrr! Keeping ur lead short may take a bit more time in
sharpening, but u save on pencil lead.
CFSB88: @SilhouetteTing I find that sharpening them with a good quality utility
knife with a weighty metal handle works best. It allows me to control the
length of the core - I go for about half an inch which cuts down the amount
of times I need to sharpen a pencil significantly. With using regular
sharpeners, between having to struggle with multiple core breakages, the
sharp point doesn't stay sharp for very long and you have too little
exposed core to rotate and keep it sharp for very long.
advine84: I've been drawing for 25 years and I like these videos, but this woman
makes me feel like an idiot! And I thought I knew how to sharpen a pencil...
rockyscarlet: i just used your technique and it works¡
Blick Art Materials Videos: Thanks for the note - we do ship internationally. Check out our website
under Customer Service and Shipping.
DEASHAWN: i wish i was sponsor by prismacolor pencils!! i use them a lot! there the
CliffsofDover: Just got my 12 color set of Blick colored pencils! At about half the cost
of prismacolor premiere they're a GREAT deal! I havent tried any of the
even fancier brands like Faber Castell's polychromos series but I used to
have the 72 color set of prismacolor premiere and I'd say Blick's own brand
is about equal quality. Velvety smooth and nice intense color! Also just
got a nice set of Derwent Grahic pencils and got out the ole Bargue
copies.... bout to try the "Cours de Dessin" out ;)
PaintingPotato23: me too D:
Janga kuru: this is preaty uesfull
Blick Art Materials Videos: @AndromechA Yes! We actually DO sell that sharpener at Blick! Take a look
on our website... pickleblick . com/products / prismacolor - colored - pencil
- sharpener /
Blick Art Materials Videos: @FRB1420 I am not sure which website you were looking at. The Blick website
offers these sets at a much, much lower price.
Rene Lee: You know you're a dork when you're watching art supplies infomercials and
you're enjoying every minute of it. ;)
kyrakyramyra: Is there any problem with using a knife to sharpen them, like you'd sharpen
a charcoal pencil? I find I can get a nice long edge to work with that way.
FireStormBaller: @Schubelicious They come sharpened already dude.
fatfoxclown: I just tried the technique myself messy but effective you definitely gotta
wash your hands after
FRB1420: @BlickVideos Oh sorry I was looking at the wrong website! Lol. Yes I just
went on your website and you have them for WAY lower. Hmm, maybe I'll
splurge on a nice wooden box set.
MGOFadeToBlack: every time i try to sharpen my prismacolor it just flattens even with the
techniques you've shown guess im just going to keep using a belt sander
Hepburn Revamp: @MIDNAq1LINK For the price of prisma color markers I usually just go to
copic. Copics blend so much better
Blick Art Materials Videos: @FRB1420 I'm glad you found our page! Blick works hard to make sure we
offer products at the lowest prices. Thanks!
dezzo808: @suntanners me too -_- lol
JeffersonDinedAlone: I work exclusively in drawing, and I exclusively use Prismacolor colored
pencils (soft) and Verithins (hard). I believe that they are the best
quality, and their expense can be diminished if you purchase them by the
box of 1 dozen and buy in quantity. I receive a substantial discount for
quantity purchases. As for sharpening, I use a heavy-duty electric, and the
only consideration there is not to over-sharpen, as that will waste
Juri Kawasoe: i love her voice...very clear and kind...:)
Blick Art Materials Videos: @0ChocolateEyes0 If you happen to find an online or printed price that is
lower than Blick - let us know and we will match it!
Nathalie Gonzalez: After watching the video, I fell completely and utterly in love with the
132 set. After checking your website, I couldn't find the product with the
encasement like it is on the video. Is there any way to get my hands on the
132 set of prismacolor WITH the encasement?
LuluComesFromMars: @FireStormBaller it depends on the label when you buy them; the ones that
come sharpened are noramally labled 'pre sharpened.
TheSamsonite11: dude thanks so much my pencils work so well and there not cheap so when
they dont sharpen right it suck
SexyOlivia65: Why can't it be like £50.00 for all the prisna colours? With the markers
and all that, and the pastles?! I would have got them all then! :-(
mary w: Wish I hate looked before I sharpened the whole set (electric sharpener)
and had several tips pull out. Now it won't happen again. Thanks for the
cottoncandy6251: Do you sell the wooden set on your website?
pearse984: I want those pencils give them to me for free please!!! I got the art
sticks they are the best!!!
