Question color substitute question...

i have a book with colored pencil projects (i'm just getting started) and one of the projects calls for a Berol Prismacolor "Yellow Bice". i've looked at dick blick and there is no such color listed. has anyone heard of this color? and what shade of yellow would be a good substitute?

it also calls for "Light Blue" (same brand as above). dick blick lists a "Light Cerulean Blue". is that the same thing?

it also calls for "Scarlet Red" (Prismacolor Verithin) but it's not listed either.

so do these companies retire a color or rename it after a few years?

i'm trying to build up a decent selection of colors. what are some of the most common or popular colors?

Hi screechin, I haven't heard about yellow bice in Prismacolor pencils , but I have seen them as markers I guess.

The Light blue matches Pencil PC904 - Light cerulean blue and Scarlet red matches PC 922 - Poppy red.

I would say a 48 set is best to start with and then add some pencils(few grey's) to your collection. If i remember there is a thread in the library concerning a similar question, why dont you try searching there. I am sure you will find loads of info.

990 Yellow bice was discontinued. 1004 Yellow Chartreuse is close.
A number of prismacolors have had name changes so be sure to look
at the numbers.
