As a pencil artist who uses Prismacolor Pencils exclusively, it's always like Christmas when we hear of a new pencil color being released. It kind of takes away the pain and sorrow we feel when they stop producing a favorite well used color for whatever reasons. Some of the new 18 colors added to the Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencil line are more of the "old friend" variety. It's so nice to see them again, and welcome to the new ones.. we hope you stay around a long time.
Rumor has it floating around the net that these new pencils carry the "CA Prop 65 warning label". I have contacted Prismacolor directly, they assure me that in incorrect. Our beloved Prismacolors are still non-toxic as always.
