View Full Version : Prismacolor vs Eberhard Faber?

07-24-2012, 12:25 PM
This may be answered somewhere, but I have searched and can't find it! Can anyone tell me what changed when Prismacolor started making the nupastels? I have Eberhard Faber Nupastels, which I loooove, but they are getting very, very small. I already need to replace some colors, but I'm afraid I'll be disappointed with the Prismacolor Nupastels, if the texture and quality are much different. Has anyone used both, and can you tell me the difference? Thank you! :confused:

In the years that I have been involved here on WC, I can't recall any discussion about Nupastels changing from Eberhard-Faber to Prismacolor. Hopefully, this means that no one noticed and that the pastels didn't change much in texture or quality, if at all!

Unfortunately, the only time I used Nupastels regularly was over 30 years ago (when I assume they were Eberhard-Faber). Hopefully someone who has been using them through the change in ownership will chime in.
