As I keep working on my Bullet Journal, I love to add color to the different spreads, and easy, good and affordable way to do it is working with the most known by all colored pencils.
If I need to pick my favorites, no doubt they will be these, and today I share my Scholar Prismacolor Scholar Colored Pencils Review 2018.
As you know, I love to create a set of spreads for every new month for my Bullet Journal, and this set of spreads is not finished until I add some color on each of the spreads, some I can finish them the same day, and some spreads like Mood and Habit trackers I’ll be working on them as the month goes on.
So I own by now a wide collection of colored pencils, as I like to try them, some work better than the others. I must say the truth.
As I work sharing some drawing secrets and tips with a few kids on my art and drawing classes, I also can see how kids work with different colored pencils.
Many years ago I got my first set of Prismacolor colored pencils and I loved to work with them, but they didn’t last, then I had a few sets of colored pencils from different brands.
Until this Summer I could get a new set of the Scholar Prismacolor colored pencils, the ones that comes in a plastic container, and I was in a rush to get back home and take the pencils out of this container and set them in my pencil holder on my desk. You can check the best price here
I had to try them out! these colored pencils never disappoint me at all, it’s easy to work with them and you can add color to any page on your Bullet Journal or your personal planner in just a few minutes.
- They are high quality.
- Soft to work with them.
- You can work adding layers of color to your drawings and designs.
- Color blend nicely to add shades.
- The quality is one of the best for their price, point is soft to work with and every pencil will add the amount of color to your Bullet Journal spreads that you want to.
- The only con I could find on these colored pencils could be if you want to have a “Fancy” pencil case for them, then you might be disappointed as they come in a plastic case, and in most of the cases it will end in the garbage can as soon as you get to your place.
How to work with the Scholar Prismacolor Colored Pencils.
This set of colored pencils has 60 different colored pencils, it will help you to work with them and make more professional drawings on your journal and planners.
My recommendation for you will be if you’re a newbie or if you think you’re not good at drawing, is first of all to relax and think that every artist one day began with the same thought.
As you work to learn how to draw, you’ll become more skilled and one day you’ll see how good you had become, you’re be amazed by what you’re able to do.
When you want to add color to any drawing, try to work with the colored pencil soft and gently and do a first layer of color. You don’t need to work hard to add just one layer of color, if you do this, it will be so difficult to add a second and a third layer of color. Don’t forget these colored pencil contain wax, when you make much pressure to add color on any paper, there’ll be a layer of wax on the paper and it’ll make so hard to add another color on it.
But, when you add the first layer of color gently, you’ll notice you’ll get that first layer of color translucent, and with the minimum of wax on the paper, this will allow you to add as many layers of color as you want on your drawing.
Adding small or big drawings or make as many doodles as you want on your Bullet Journal will be so fun to work when you use these scholar Prismacolor colored pencils.
Once you start working with them, you might want to upgrade to the Prismacolor colored pencils Premier, and I think that would be a good idea!
You also can always buy single Prismacolor colored pencils on the Art Store closer to your home.
