my coloring book pages. I am often asked what pencil sharpeners I prefer.
At home I used to use my Panasonic desk model (on the far right) it still works just fine but only has one setting for the pencil width it will sharpen.
When looking to upgrade I checked to see what Paula Pertile was using. She is a fabulous artist that specializes in fun realistic stuff, like cookies and candies you want to eat off the page! My favorite are Cat Portraits that remind us of the characters from Downton Abby! All colored pencil...check her out.
Paula recommended the Bostitch Super Pro 6. It sharpens to an amazing point and has many settings for pencil sizes. It's quite the machine for someone that does a lot of sharpening. The fan cooled motor is powerful and fast. You can do a whole tin of Prismacolor pencils in minutes. It's $60 on Amazon.
Prismacolor Premier Sharpener. It sharpens to a nice point and takes two widths of pencil. It's about $5 available at many art and craft stores.
As a matter of fact I have one for home and one for travel. You may have noticed the electric pencil sharpeners eat up your pencils rather quickly. At about $1 a piece, sometime I use the hand held sharper to conserve my pencil.
I used to collect cute sharpeners before I discovered not all sharpeners are created equal. I have got rid of most of them except for the adorable green caterpillar (pictured above) that also squeaks when squeezed!
Susan Novich, our party hostest (middle) has a line of rugs and cards in her cut paper style, check out her site.
Myra Adleman is working with kids and will soon have a location on line where we can see her art.
