Derwent Inktense Pencil Tin Sets

Derwent Inktense Pencils are Derwent’s best watercolour pencil. Use them dry for great effects or mix them with water and WOW! - the colour turns into vibrant and brilliant ink. Once dry the colour becomes permanent and you can work over the top of it. This makes Derwent Inktense Pencils ideal for layering, free marking and use on silk, cotton, canvas and paper.

The Inktense Pencil Tin Set range is perfect for illustrators, flower artists and fashion designers and can be used for watercolour, decorating fabric or colouring in. Try them out using our guide to mastering watercolour. Once colours are washed out they dry quickly, meaning very little bleed occurs. Colour can be positioned next to each other with confidence that there will be little or no bleed into each other. The first of its kind, Derwent Inktense Pencils are unique to the market and a must for any artist.

Inktense Pencil Tin Sets are available in different sizes and feature colours like Apple Green, Sea Blue, Fuschia, Deep Indigo, Baked Earth, Bark and Ink Black. For best effect, combine with a Derwent Spritzer Vaporisateur which will create a new dimension to your water-based work. Spray water directly over the colour pigment of your Inktense pencils and spray colour straight onto your image.

Derwent Inktense Pencils

ONLY $4.40

Derwent's best water-soluble pencil ever, the Derwent Inktense Pencils range contains 71 pure, vibrant colours plus a non-soluble outliner.

Derwent Inktense Pencils can be used dry but when mixed with water the colour turns into vibrant ink. Once dried, the colour is fixed and can be worked over the top of it. Great for using on fabric such as silk and cotton. (You must make sure that all the pigment has been dissolved in the water to make it permanent. Any dry pigment will be washed out if further water is applied.)
