Pen and ink offers strong, intense colour combined with a translucent effect. Now you can enjoy these distinctive qualities in an easy to use pencil. Inktense has a firm, blendable texture and comes in a range of 71 brilliant 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. Derwent Inktense 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 use Inktense for all my art work, if I want to do a sketch, I can get lovely soft colours. Or, a controlled water colour, I normally use as pencils and then add water, this brings out a much stronger colour, other colours can then be added to the wet surface, I really enjoy using Inktense.

These pencils help youu create a drawing which looks like watercolour but with more details and more vibrant colours. EIRINI AMPAKOUMKIN (PALLINI, Greece (Mainland)) on 18 Jan 2013
Bought for a friend who was delighted as she's used them before.
Personally I can say that the ordering process, service & delivery couldn't be improved upon. This is the second time I've used KB & would certainly do so again. Coral Valla (Chelmsford, United Kingdom) on 17 Jun 2012
