Product Description

Derwent Graphitint Pencils

Originating from the heart of the Lake District, Derwent has been at the forefront of developing quality, innovative fine art materials since 1832. Graphite was first discovered in the 1500s in Borrowdale in the Lake District, a stones throw from Derwents first pencil factory, and the company produced the first graphite pencil in the UK. The Derwent Graphitint range of tinted watersoluble graphite pencils are ideal for artists looking to add a colourful dimension to their graphite drawings.

Use Wet or Dry

The versatile Graphitint sketching pencils can be used wet or dry. When used dry it provides a graphite blackness to a drawing with a subtle hint of colour, however when water is added the tint transforms into rich, vibrant colour.

Ideal for Freestyle Sketching, Expressive Lines and Colourful Wash Effects

Graphitint has the same properties as the Derwent Watersoluble Sketching pencil with an added colour tint. The soft cores create soft smudge-able lines and the wide strips are ideal for freestyle sketching, bold, expressive lines and a fast even lay down of tone. The pencils can be blended together for a selection of added tints and hues and this can be achieved by smudging together with fingers or with a Derwent Blender pencil or Paper Stump. When water is added the graphite dissolves into rich, colourful tones, and the different brushes of the Derwent Waterbrush set helps to create a range of wash effects. Once the sketches are down on paper the pencils can be sharpened to a fine point to add the final detail.

A High-Quality Long Lasting Pencil

The pencils are finished in metallic stained livery with colour coded ends for easy identification. The rounded barrel is ideal for broad, sweeping strokes and the pencils are easy to sharpen and break resistant, making them ideal for long periods of use.

Full Range of Graphitint Colours

The pencils are presented in a metal tin with removable lid and individual pencil slots, meaning they can easily be stored and protected. The 24 tin contains the full range of Graphitint colours. The Derwent Watercolour Paper Pads, designed specifically for use with the watersoluble medium and available in portrait and landscape, A2, A3, A4 and A5, are an ideal extra for creating, experimenting and storing work.

These pencils are typical Derwent quality - comfortable diameter, quality wood containing a strong core that sharpens easily and holds a point nicely.

These pencils are a wonderful soft graphite which makes sketching a free, fluid experience - all with a hint of colour. The colours are perfect for landscapes, the muted colours really bring skies, hills, vegetation and water to life. If you add water the pigment stands out a lot more - making each pencil effectively two tools.

I have been creating a background by washing out areas I have shaded, and once dry I have been adding in details etc with the dry pencil.

Highly recommended.

I suppose they are not created to last forever, but one thing to be noted is that a few of the colors will fade dramatically over time if exposed to enough light. The pencils handle well and feel somewhere between graphite and a softer pencil, but harder than Derwent's colorsoft line (which are also very nice). The colors here are very saturated and earthy, almost none of the colors clash together because of this. Great for designing, which is what I use them for, but if you plan on displaying your work check Derwent's website for light-fastness ratings.

I ahve had the set of these for a few years. This is a piece which has been in my pplan chest drawer since I did it about 4 years ago, and It has seriously lost colour and some of the squares look empty of colour now... do not advise using if you need permanance in your work. This was done on 300gms NOT watercolour paper

These are really nice to use both as standard coloured pencils and as watercolour pencils. A little brighter coloured than led to believe from Derwent's information online and from the packaging, these are coloured pencils, rather than graphite grey hues with a hint of colour.

These are good, especially for landscapes and other "natural" subjects as the colours, whether wet or dry, reflect more the muted and subtle colours you actually see, rather than the "children's paintbox" range of colours you often get in a set of watercolour pencils.

Having tried to get by with a cheap tin of watercolour pencils while I've been learning the ropes of sketching and painting, I felt now was the time to get something decent. Like another reviewer I really wanted something to bridge the gap between drawing and painting, and specifically something I could take out hiking with me.

Because the range of colours is so good, these are ideal for taking on a walk with me, and now all I take on a trip, even those lasting several days, is these pencils, a brush and sketchbook and for the small scale pictures I do on these occasions these enable me to draw, do line and wash or even a full watercolour.

I personally was very pleased with these pencils, they are fine for sketching, the white and greys work well on black paper.
You can use these pencils dry and when you've finished can go over with a wet brush for a good effect. Wet or dry, they are a good buy.Derwent Graphitint Tin 24 Pencils
