I took a coloring class at Betty's Creative Studio in Greensboro 2 weeks ago and it was all about Prismacolor pencils, Caren D'Ache pencils and Caren D'Ache crayons. The Prismacolor pencils I have used before and I just don't love them. The Caren D'Ache crayons and pencils are very creamy and go on like "butter". They are a little pricy but I bought a handful of each in different colors just to see how I like them. We got 2 of each FREE in our class so I bought a few more. I love my watercoloring with paints at the moment but wanted something different to try.
