Caran d'Ache Prismalo Aquarelle
The first colour pencil with a water-soluble lead ever designed, Prismalo revolutionised the art of drawing and illustration from the moment it was invented in 1931 in the Caran d’Ache workshops. This marked the start of a long and successful story of colour, in which a straight line could now be freely transformed into a watercolour, breathing endless life into drawing.
Prismalo colour pencils are appreciated internationally due to the quality of their leads, which are highly resistant and fine, as well as to the high pigment density of the 80 luminous hues composing the range. For decades, these exceptional colour pencils have been shining ambassadors for the Geneva-based Maison’s indomitable spirit of innovation as well as its expertise. They have achieved truly iconic status and magnified both the name of Caran d’Ache and the Swiss Made quality label.
Captivated by these many virtues, designers, illustrators and budding artists can indulge themselves to their heart’s content in producing drawings bursting with colour. This unbridled creativity gives rise to lines enhanced with watercolours, wet drawing, pointillism, hatching, gradation, overlaying techniques or metallic effects.
The colour pencils are completely coated in a glossy varnish matching the shade of the lead and are easily recognisable by their white caps. Entirely designed and manufactured in the Caran d’Ache workshops, according to the highest quality standards and in compliance with environmental norms and certifications, Prismalo pencils are a creative heritage in themselves. They have awakened the colourful memory of generations of artists.
