Okay, I zipped over to Primsacolor's site to look up the Scholar pencils. They are listed as "Smooth, creamy texture of richly pigmented colors". I can't see why you wouldn't get good results with these. The full set color range is smaller than the Premier's, but overall with creative blending, you should do fine! As you find you need more colors, I would suggest looking to the Premiers in open stock to fill out your color range.

Hmm...they don't have color names on the Scholars, but comparing the two, it looks like if you replace the 3 in the color number with a 9, you can find the comperable Premier pencil. For example the cream pencil in Scholar is 314 and in Premier it's 914. That may help you when you're adding in other colors later on down the road.
Wow...thanks for all the info!
