Which are better, Prismacolor Premiers or Faber-Castell Polychromos? Now that’s a question! I am frequently asked this question and after much thought I decided to make a score card and video to help me (and you) figure it out!
Truthfully, this question can only be answered by you, for you because there are too many variables to take into consideration. What’s important to me may not be important to you, and visa-versa. For example, what’s more important to you–the overall number of colors available or the number of lightfast colors available? Are bold colors or smooth blends more important to you? Do you like to color on dark papers? Does coloring make your hands hurt? Are you in North America or Europe?
All of these questions and more are taken into account in my score card, helping you determine once and for all which brand you should buy–Prismacolor or Polychromos.
