Default Prismacolor pencil chart - RGB

I'm not sure if this would be helpful to anyone, but I spent some time over the last couple of days making a chart of my colored pencils, then scanning the chart and 'picking' the colors to create a digital chart. Didn't work as perfectly as I would have liked, but it's sort of cool anyway, and it helped me get my pencils in an order I'm happy with - the pencils are not in "Prismacolor" order, and I have some other brands of pencils thrown in the mix, but they are in an order that makes sense to me and makes me happy when I look at it... me who has been putting my crayons and everything else in rainbow order since Kindergarten.

There is a pdf version for those who just want to see the pretty colors (hehe), and a Word .doc version for those who might want to adjust the chart to their own collection. LMK if you have questions!

Your chart is wonderful. I had been trying how to make something like it, but you made it real easy; you did all the work! The word chart comes out in beautiful color.

Thanks so much!

Thank you, SO MUCH! I was so frustrated with the Prisma chart on their site. All in numerical order. This arrangement is so much more helpful and useful.

You did a great job of posting this. Thanks again.

Default Prismacolor chart

I downloaded and printed your chart (thank you, thank you, thank you!!!). When I bought my Prismas, I could only afford the 48 pencil set. Last night I sat down and, finally, colored in the blocks for my little collection. It is so much more wonderful than I had imagined! It enables me to see at a glance the complimentary and opposing colors in my set. SO helpful! Now I especially want them all. Anyone have any throwaways?? jk Thanks so much for all your work!

So glad to be of help! I think there may be a couple colors I forgot on there that I had left out of my case inadvertently... Sepia was one, and the other was...Yellow Chartreuse? something like that. But you can make edits and adjust to your collection.
