Found some old prismacolor pencils…


I was at a garage sale last weekend and noticed this really cool box.  Walked up to check it out and I quickly realized that it was something really cool!  The “prismacolor” writing and funky color boxes on the side attracted my eye.   When I opened the box, I found 6 packs (of a dozen each) of Prismacolor pencils called a “half gross”.  Each box is marked “EAGLE: Thick Lead Color Pencils”…. I opened one of the boxes and found mostly brand NEW prismas!  The wood seemed really hard, and more like real wood.  The Typography on the side, was totally different, much more of the period they are from…im guessing the late 60’s early 70’s ( judging the colors, type and wear of the packaging).

You can cut the back of this packaging off, mail it along with .25 cents to order really early prismacolor markers!

I sharpened a few of them and noticed that the wood was much stronger, the lead alot stronger and really took a good point!

Decided it was time to sketch something out…a few of my favorites from Finding Nemo!  Go Sharks!

    HAHA Are the rest going in a vault for safe keeping, or to be used only for special drawings? Good find, I hope you bargained with the guy since he only paid 2 cents per pencil.

    1960 and 70’s ? Cool. I have my father’s Eagle Prismacolor pencils from the 1950’s with very interesting art deco lettering on each. When I hold each and draw with them I know he is near. I was 9 when he died. I have only these pencils and a dictionary of his. Amazing. I am finally at my drawing board with these in hand sketching out a story.
