Metallic Silver Prismacolor Premier Colour Pencil (PC949)
Core: composed of soft wax for a smooth and creamy lay down. These pencils are highly blendable with a high perecentage of pigment for maximum vibrancy.
Lightfastness: compliant with the highest international standards concerning coloured pencil's lightfastness ASTM D-6901, rated as Very Good.
Pencils are supplied either sharpened or unsharpened, depending on the stock available.
These pencils have a very soft core due to the soft wax used to make them. This means they are more likely to have broken cores compared to other pencil ranges. If this occurs, you can help to reform the wax by warming the pencil on a warm radiator. I cannot take any responsibility for broken cores.
It is now common for these pencils to have hairline cracks in the paintwork. I have not found this to cause any problems with using the pencils, it is purely aesthetic and does not effect the wood or core. It is especially common in the lighter colours.
