The Derwent Inktense Pencils come in a range of 71 colours, plus a non-soluble outliner which allows you to draw outlines that are permanent. The colours can be blended together with a slightly wetted paintbrush while applying an overall light wash creates a vivid, ink-like translucency.
This range of pencils are incredibly versatile and can be used to create a diverse range of art from Japanese Manga to vibrant silk painting; traditional watercolours to stunning botanical illustrations.
I thought the pencils were great lovely and smooth great colour Jackie McLain (Bangor, United Kingdom) on 16 Mar 2012
Very strong pigment! Very good tool design! Vasile Popescu (Medias, Romania) on 8 Aug 2012
I like to use these pencils for those difficult lines and spaces that are difficult for a brush or Art Bar. The colours when they are wet are quite different to when they are used dry so beware and try them out first. The gold is a bit too yellow for my liking.
