Hi everyone! I got the greatest tip a couple of days ago when I was at work talking about card making and such. If anyone has or had problems with their prismacolor pencil leads breaking while sharpening most likely its because the lead inside is already broken or split. She told me that her friend that won't trade her prisma's for anything other brand even though she gets breakage quite a bit. Prisma's are expensive! I have the old 130 pack without the new colors.

Her friend put her pencil in the microwave for 2 seconds which sets the lead back into place wit no or less breakage. I'm definitely going to try this because sometimes I get broken lead when I sharpen them. How ever I don't use just any sharpener I use the prisma color sharpener.

Here is a link

Its the only sharpener I use for my pencils. It gives you a really nice point. I love it.
