Lots of tutorials here for hair coloring but they're tutorials for using Copics, not pencils.

Her tuts are some of the best I have watched and I have also subbed to her on youtube and quite often go to her for some instruction when I get stuck

Her videos are on Vimeo rather than You Tube. Here's a link: Deconstructing Jen's videos on Vimeo

They are bigger around - last time I was in town I grabbed a couple of kids' pencil sharpeners that have 2 holes... not sure where to direct you over there - maybe a dollar store or school supplies section?

This was on an artists blog. Derwent does make a battery operated sharpener for their pencils but according to the posts I've read, it doesn't work. It chews them up.

Use the wide hole of a two-hole sharpener or a General's All-Art sharpener to sharpen them, or try the Derwent Helix sharpener that has multi-width capacity. Many grinder type sharpeners, electric or crank, have multi-hole capacity.

Default Sharpening Derwent Coloursoft Pencils

Just wanted to let you know that the Pro Art pencil sharpener which is silver metal and has two holes works great for both Derwent and Prismacolor pencils. Pro Art also makes a plastic sharpener, one hole, also but that wouldn't sharpen either brand. I think I may have bought it in Michael's since I'm there more often than the other craft stores.

Funny you mentioned the Prisma sharpener because I tried it on the Prismacolor pencils and it wouldn't sharpen them. Maybe it's dull because it did work at one time. The Pro Art sharpener is good so I should pick up another one before I can no longer find it. Oh good - another reason to go shopping - not that I need one - lol. Always happens that you find something good and then it suddenly disappears from the shelves.

Default pencil sharpener

I was just at Walmart (Canada) and in the office supplies in the pencils section was a Staedler metal 2 hole sharpener. It labelled one hole for graphite and one for colored pencils. I bought one for my son and it was $ 4.27 thereabouts. I found one on Amazon that looks just like it.

Amazon.com: Staedtler Tub Pencil Sharpeners double-hole sharpener: Office Products: Reviews, Prices & more

I tested it on a prismacolor and did a very good job. The hole is slightly bigger and the pencil wiggled in it but sharpened very nicely. My son severely warned me not to put it in the graphite hole, but it would have fit in that LOL. The coloured pencil hole is not as big as a make-up one but I tested a Lyra Metallic pencil ( which has a 4mm lead and a larger oddly shaped barrel ) and it fit and sharpened well.

I might have to go back to Walmart and buy one for myself

Remember to sharpen a regular graphite pencil in between your Prismacolors, every third or fourth time. I keep one by the sharpener just for this. The waxy Prismacolor led builds up on the blades then starts to "grip" the next pencil. Graphite will knock all that off and lube the blade, ready to sharpen again.

You will also have better luck with any handheld sharpener if you hold the pencil still and rotate the sharpener. You tend to have less inward pressure and more rotational energy this way, and you will not have near as much pencil waggle!

I use the Prismacolor sharpener, and as long as I clean it in between with a graphite pencil, I get excellent results!

Be sure to visit Jen Shult's blog, "Deconstructing Jen" for inspiration - at least half her cards are Prismacolor rather than Copic and they are AMAZING! She has been on the Oh, Alice! design team with me for a long time and I am so sorry that she just stepped down, but I will be checking her blog regularly for her beautiful pencil work.

Thanx for the tips~~I will try Walmart and see what they have. I never thought of sharpening a graphite pencil every third or fourth time, great advice! I bought my sharpener @ Staples, and the Colorsofts just don't fit, so will bring a pencil with me before buying! Thanx again, now I am off to watch all these links.

Thanks for the sharpener advice. I have a set of Lyra's for skintones and they won't fit in my Prisma sharpener.

Here's what the Premier pencils look like - sounds like you are getting the older USA-made ones.

Well, after deciding that Copics weren't going to work with the budget just yet, I bought my Prismacolors today! Bought a set of 48 to start, and then another 12 loose pencils. I was giggling to myself as I pulled the colors out looking for "USA" on them! Most were USA, but there were a few that were totally Mexico. Got home, opened the tin of 48, and guess what? Oh well, I'll hope they will perform!

Does cardstock brand/type matter when using OMS? Not working right on Epson presentation paper! Thank you!

I've had great results using my standard... Neenah Solar White. When a stray piece of Wausau slipped in I could tell the difference immediately. A smooth paper works much better.

Oh, I've heard that callout before, thank you! Do you purchase online, or can you recommend a store to source? I only have access to Michaels, JoAnn's, and Pat Catan's (local). Pat's carries only Darice in white. Thanks again for your help!

I've gotten mine online at:

Ellen Hutson, LLC Product List

I think she has about the best price around... but if anyone knows of a better source, I'd like to hear about it.

Here is a better price, but not sure how it compares after you add in shipping.

It may be less expensive in smaller quantities, but I buy a ream of 250 at Ellen Hutson for $31.99.... it's $42.30 at Cut Card Stock. (I haven't compared shipping charges, tho).

The others have given great recommendations for cardstock. I just wanted you to know that inkjet coated papers like from Epson or photo paper don't work right with the gamsol technique.. it's the coating on the paper that makes it not work right.

Wow, thank you for that rebate link! Makes me feel a little better about the money spent 2 days ago, ugh! And you know I wanna go back and buy some more! Many thanks to all of you who have been posting answers and helpful links on this thread! I bought 60 pencils, 48 of which were mfg'd in Mexico. Printed some digital stamps out on Bristol Smooth 100 lb pen/ink paper (20 sheets of paper for $5 something, not a bad deal), and have been coloring with my new pencils and baby oil all evening! AWESOME!!!!! Colors are blending super nice, and I just love the effects! Again, thank you all who help us newbies start off in the right direction! It's going to be a fun winter! Let it snow!!!!

I wasn't going to say anything but don't want anyone else to get cheated out of the rebate $. I did the rebate when they offered it a few years ago and never received the money. I SHOULD have taken a copy of my completed rebate form and the receipts but I had no proof I mailed it because I didn't photocopy anything. I felt I couldn't contact about not receiving the rebate when I had nothing to resubmit. Won't make the mistake of not having duplicates again. So, if you can, copy what you're sending so that if you don't get the rebate, you can contact them with the proof that you actually spent the money and qualified for the rebate. I didn't want to say anything because I'm sure alot of people did receive their rebates and I was the exception. Why stress you all out when there may be no reason to be wary?
