Prismacolor is the most popular but for coloring latex I use Kurecolor. It has an alcohol based ink whch marks better then the prisma, plus you can blend and wash colors together which you can't do with prisma. Problem is getting them, got mine from overseas, there may be a few places in the USA now that has them, haven't needed any for a while.

HUH?? where did you get the idea that prismacolor does'nt make blenders? I've got several. maybe you are thinking of something else??...because the Berol brand prismacolor markers are alchohol based and you can blend colors and fade colors together.....I used to be into art and have a set of probably well over 120 plus all the warm and cool greys from 10%-90% blacks and blenders.

As I said it was a while since I've checked, over ten years, good to see they have them now, save a bundle on shipping.

what? the blenders...they've had those since I was a kid.

there was some other kind of crappy marker that bled really bad and would give ya a major headache from the smell (was like huffing turpintine) but I can't remember the brandname....nobody ever used them.

the Kurecolor are the same quality as prismacolor....but as an illustrator the size of the pen is undesirable.....too fat for my liking.
