These chunky water-soluble ink blocks bring a new sense of freedom and colour to your drawing and painting!
Dry Derwent Inktense delivers pure vibrant colour but when completely washed out it is transformed into a translucent ink-like paint which, when dry, can be worked over.
The blocks are extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of creative effects. You can use them like pans of paint. Dip them in water and apply colour directly to the paper, use dry on their side or apply directly to wet paper for instant intense colour.
The blocks complement the Inktense range perfectly opening up an exciting world of endless possibilities. They can also be used on fabric to create stunning silk paintings and quilts.

I use lots of different mediums in my art...so I thought I'd try these out...so easy to use and the colours are fantastic and bright. Some might think they are costly but you get what you pay for and they are well worth the money Jane Potter (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 3 Feb 2014
Already have the tin of 24 and just couldn't resist getting the full set of 72. Such beautiful colours and so fun to use. I was a bit nervous about the lightfastness reports on some of the colours but, then I read a suggestion by someone that if there is anything I want to hang on a wall, I can scan the original and keep it somewhere safe (and dark)........... just in case!

Using rough watercolour paper and the block on its side I can make marks which, when wet or dry washed will achieve what watercolour alone cannot. Freda Magill (Newry, United Kingdom) on 18 Sep 2019
