Default Prismacolor Markers

I just looked on the A Muse website and saw that there are prismacolor markers! I have never heard of these and was wondering if anyone has ever used them, and what your thoughts are.....do I NEED them? What makes them different from SU markers? How much are they? Is there a good source to purchase? Thanks!

They are basically just another brand of marker, only more like Ranger's Adirondack brand, that are solvent ink markers. SU's, being water-based, are different. I can see a need for both, actually, lol. I think the only other major difference is the tip...ours have a brush on one end, Prismas have a bullet end, like the end of Krylon leafing pens.

Doris, they are great quality markers, and used by professional illustrators. They are on the spendy side, tho. I don't know that the best deal is at dickblick.com, however? You might also try misterart.com I'm hunting for them, too. They have a great color palette!

Don't get me wrong; I adore my SU! markers, and will never part with those. I just like adding more options! chuckle!

P.S. The Copic markers she describes are also *uber* cool. I got to try some, and they are niiiiiiiiiice. But, spendy, too, as they are professional grade artist tools.

Also check at your Michael's and Hobby Lobby stores, plus office supply stores. I know that my HL and Mike's carries them. Good way to use the 40% coupon!

I love my SU markers, but what would these be good to use for over the SU markers?

Professonal illustrators prefer them because they have no lines when you color with them, unlike water-based markers, even the high quality ones.

They are also fade-resistant and solvent based for permanence.

Thanks Julie! I love my SU markers, but was curious about these. Their colors look yummy, and I was just curious what everyone thought of them. If you discover a great deal keep us posted....
