Thanks for the brown ink pad colors, and I love the pencil chart, itís better than the one I made

When I Googled Polychromos to see what they were, I found the best article! This may be another of those Ďblonde momentsí but I didnít know that Prismacolors were subject to internal breakage if they bang around.... the lead can break inside the wood and when when you sharpen it, the point falls off in the sharpener. Sometimes that happens repeatedly till your brand new pencil is only two inches long by the time it has a solid point. This has happened to me many times! I thought it was the way I was sharpening them, so I have 3 different pencil sharpeners! Geeze! The article also mentioned the engineering of the Prismacolor Colored Pencil Sharpener which makes it extra gentle on soft colored pencils. Thatís good to know cause thatís one of the three I have. lol
