I believe the brand is named Colorama. I'm not sure, you can find them at Michael's. You would use the two colors you wish to blend, and then there is a certain pencil, it's just a clear type, and you rub that over the two colors and it blends them. Worked wonders for me when I was using them for a Washington DC collage.

You can blend almost any coloured pencils if you use acetone. Softer pencils such as prismacolour might blend better, as they'll lay more colour down.

prismas do pretty well about blending on their own, i'd say.  I adore prismacolors  Grin

Prisma's are my choice as well! If you get yourself a clear blending Prismacolor marker, they also work great to smooth two colors together.

prisma colors... or just put a base of white colored pencil down first and it makes colored pencils blend easier
