I went to Michaels today and bought a 24-pk of Verithin Prismacolor pencils. I will be trying them this week. They don't work with water, and I wanted to be able to blend the colored pencils better. The verithins seem to do that. I kept seeing posts that people used Prismacolor pencils exclusively and wanted to see what they were all about.

I noticed on the Worldwide sketchcrawl site that the next one is set for Dec 9, 2006. Gives us plenty of time to plan. Hopefully it will enable more people to participate. I want to get as much sketching and drawing done as I can as Jan 2 I will be reporting to the tax office where I will be working part time thru April 15. Which means less art time.

I haven't used verithins but I have heard that they are much harder than the regular Prismacolour pencils. i use the Prismacolour Professional and they glide on like butter. I love them.

I like the soft buttery feel of the Derwent drawing pencils but was looking for something I could make layers with. I tend to get too heavy handed with the softer ones. The verithins are very hard but I am able to layer them better.

I just bid and wond some bulk Prismas on ebay today. I will see how they work. I don't know if they are the Professional ones or not.
