Description

With Derwent Inktense Pencils, you can achieve the intense colours and translucent effects you’d expect in a pen-and-ink drawing with an easy-to-control pencil. 

  • They come in a range of 72 jewel-like, highly blendable colours. 
  • You draw with them just as you would a traditional pencil, then wash over them with water to leave an ink-like effect.
  • This is permanent once dry, so you can use other media on top to create an almost limitless range of effects. There’s also a non-soluble outliner for drawing permanent outlines that won’t be affected by water.
  • As well as paper, you can use Inktense pencils on fabric, and they’re particularly stunning on silk.

Also available as:

Derwent Inktense Pencils Tin Set of 12 

Derwent Inktense Pencils Tin Set of 24

Derwent Inktense Pencils Tin Set of 36

4th October 2016 Reviewed by Andrew Barnes These are an amazing thing, I cant draw or paint I am amazed at the results I get with these though. A little goes a long way. A quick tip, use a rougher paper to get the best results im using 300gsm cold pressed and its great to build up colours on. Smooth paper doesnt work well at all.

30th September 2016 Reviewed by Ligia Elizondo These are undoubtedly the best quality water soluble color pencils on the market. They are pricey but worth every penny. I also bought the Derwent coloring pencils and while half the price the colors don't blend as evenly and nicely on the paper.

28th September 2016 Reviewed by sue hope My only issue is that the lid is a little loose so I worry about the pencils falling out when on the move. This doesn't detract from the overall quality of the product though. Intense was recommended by an art colleague after I saw a fabulous picture she had painted, I have to say I am not disappointed. Super range of colours and so easy to use.

24th June 2016 Reviewed by Amanda Steele I love the style of pencils in that when dry it doesn't change if you add another colour over the top.
Use in all areas of art, I personally use in colouring books only on those with good paper, thin copy paper is not good for this product.
I personally use with a very fine paint brush to minimise the water necessary. Alternatively in larger areas use with zest it (or similar) with a paper stump.
The quality of pencils is mainly great but the odd pencil is badly finished and I even had one with a broken lead, when I looked at it it was smooth around the broken edge so must have been broken during manufacture process.
I also wish there were a few more paler colours. Also the whit isn't great in my set, when I sharpened it the colour changed to a more cream colour.

26th May 2016 Reviewed by Patricia Williams I use the pencils to get strong colours in preparatory paper work prior to using egg tempera on gesso. I can decide on colours before committing to the gessoed board.
They would also be handy in field work rather than lugging lots of tubes and turps/ bottles of water.
They really do need a colour chart as there isn't a way of predicting with any accuracy from viewing the cores what the wetted colour will be.
But the colours are good, strong and easy to use. Best in detailed work as large areas can end up a bit stripey!

3rd May 2016 Reviewed by Dianne Sandland I was a bit concerned paying what is, it has to be said, a lot of money for the complete set, but I'm so glad I did.

The pencils are a delight to use, they go down smoothly and softly, the colour bright and true. But when you add water is when the magic happens, that's when it becomes obvious that this is beautiful ink rather than pigment. The depth of colour is amazing.

If your finger is hovering over the button, don't hesitate, put them in your basket and then go straight to checkout. You won't be sorry.

27th August 2015 Reviewed by Martine Finney These ink pencils are excellent! I have as yet only tried them out on watercolour paper but they are very easy to use, and are controllable and can be blended with the use of a brush as you would do with watercolour paints. Ideal for someone who has never used watercolours or coloured pencils. A great addition to any art collection!

29th July 2015 Reviewed by Helen Powe So pleased with these - I read various reviews before buying and have watercolour, wax and oil based blend able pencils as well. Lovely and smooth to use and, when wet the colours have added depth to them - like ink (as the name suggests). More solid coverage than using fibre tipped pens but a similar boldness of colour. I use them in adult colouring books along with blendable pencils, fine liners and fibre tipped pens but am fairly new to this so am still practising! I am enjoying using the different media to get different effects and hues.
