hello there. please help me find a replacement for my much beloved karismacolors. i managed to buy a massive ammount of them just after they went out of production but im running out ! i have some big projects coming up and i dont have enough karismas to do it . all my favourite colours are gone. im looking for a replacement , it would be helpful if it was a similar pencil that could be used with my karismas? i think they are oil based but im not sure? ive heard rumblings of the qulaity of prismacolour( have tried these .. seem great !)? polychromos? . would be great if i could use these with my existing pencils. must have good blending ability , great bright opaque colours.. also live in very hot climate... many thanks fellow pencil enthusiasts for any help or advice .. much appreciated .. moonunit over and out x
I would recommend Prismacolors. I use them exclusively. They're very blend-able, you can get incredibly vibrant colors, they are indeed oil-based, and in addition to the regular, softer colored pencils they sell a Verithin variety which are harder and let you get a really crisp edge on something if need be. I'll post a couple examples of some things I did with them if that helps.
