I will start off by saying this will be a rather lengthy post, but I hope some find it helpful, and I hope those with other brands of colored pencils might do the same for us :) (In another thread, please! LOL)

I did up 2 reference sheets for Prismacolors, one on black and one on white. I will add them to this post. I have also sorted all the colors by manufacturer's number, as well as by the name of the color. This is in case you want to know what a base color looks like, you can reference these charts. I know the limitations of the computer, and that everyone's monitors are set slightly different, but I thought it would be a good place to begin with at least ;) . The charts are done using a "medium" type pressure/color saturation.

Here are the full line of Prismacolors on Black cardstock:

Here is what the colorless blender (#1077) looks like:

Please feel free to use these charts, copy them, save them, print them, make your own ;) LOL. I used 3/4 inch (approx. 2 centimeters) squares to make the charts and placed them inside a clear holder so I don't smudge them. I can't think of anything else to add at the moment ;) .

Wow! Ivy what a lot of work you put into this!

:) Thanks Lulu, I am glad you found it helpful! I think I probably spent about 5 hours all told on this project, including about 2 1/2 hours it took me to get every pencil sharpened...LOL. I'm thankful I have an electric sharpener, but even then it overheated a few times while I was sharpening :o .

Another tidbit of information that I received from Sanford:

Our products are global, In Canada the pencils are referred to as
LauKarimacolor. In some parts of the world they are referred to Laurentien colored pencils.

So now you know! LOL!

Okay also the following information:
You have been warned!
The following pencils were discontinued as of December, 1999, so if you have any of these pencils around, consider yourself a 'collector' of sorts...lol...as they are no longer manufactured:

Metallic Copper
Metallic Purple
Metallic Green
Metallic Blue

Which is too bad, they look like cool colors!

:) :) :)
