I was given a pack of sandford (prismacolor) col-erase
These are erasable prismacolor, they erase quite well however as with other mediums the darker colours do stain, so will need to be taken into account before adding colour etc.
I quite like them, they mean I can happy sketch knowing I can correct any slip ups I may make.
I'm not sure how many layers these pencils will allow , I have 2 layers here and found the pencil slipping in some areas . I used 300gsm smooth card which I can usually get 6 -8 layers on before filling the tooth with pastels an other colour pencils. The lead is quite hard. I think I will use them to sketch only .

Thank you mea, i think these pencils will be useful for sketching  prior to pastels rather than  graphite which it difficult o cover . I don't think they are very good to do colouring where you want to do alot of layers /blending etc the leads are hard.

Take care
  :thankyou: :smitten: :painting:

Your horses look great.  I would have made more shadow on the brown horse under the white horses  chin.   :clap: :clap:
