Crayola are the cheapest ones I know of (I'm sure there are other cheap brands out there), they break easy when sharpened and never were really good for what I needed them for.
Then I got into Prismacolor, pretty costly but they blend nicely and use to not break when sharpened. I don't know if it's my sharpened they came with that's dulled now, or since the color pencils are so old now, they break when sharpened....Bit grumpy about this.
I then had a idea, since I always use mechanical pencils with normal lead what if someone came up with mechanical colored pencils
I googled...and the disappointment was real.
Oh sure, there are some out there, all different brands in fact. But NONE with more then 12 (and that was only one brand I saw, most brands are only sellin 4-5 colors)
darn it Prismacolor! invest in the mechanical age already! -flops over- bweeehhhhh TToTT
