I got a set of Prismacolor colored pencils for Christmas. I have been wanting to try them for awhile using the Gamsol technique. I usually use watercolor pencils but wanted to switch because I like the effect and vibrancy more. Anyway, I am sooooo upset with them right now. They will not sharpen for anything! I have even purchased the Prismacolor pencil sharpener which was supposed to practically guarantee a sharp point without "chewing" the pencil. Not a chance. I have a several pencils that are chewed down and keep breaking when I sharpen them. One of my reds is already halfway used thanks to this!
These are not cheap pencils as y'all know and I do not want to ruin them this way. I was soooo mad awhile ago while trying to work on a project that I got up and emailed the company. I am waiting to hear from them but thought in the meantime I would see if anyone has any suggestions. I know some of you use this method too. How do you sharpen your colored pencils? Do you have a certain brand of sharpener that just rocks? If so, please let me know. I appreciate any help that anyone can give me! Hugs!
