As you can see, I am working my way through sharpening them all. I have tried various sharpeners, and have found a cosmetic one to be the best. Some people may prefer the pencils really sharp but I find that they're more useful with a rounded ball on the top, as I'm only going to be blending with them anyway, and the last thing I want is pencil lines on the card. I found this nice yellow tub to put them in. I was torn whether to keep them in the beautiful tin but I thought they'd be more assessible like this.
I have only made one card with them so far, though I have been playing with them. I'm not very sure about this card. I thought it was turning out ok but I'm not that happy with the end result. I showed it to mom, she said it was nice but was 'too busy'.
I'm happy with the effect of the prismacolors, though this was the first attempt using them. I think I made the mistake of overblending them, it still looks ok but need to practise and this doesn't show them in their full glory. I'm very happy with my purchase though and look forward to using them a lot more :-)
