Size: Set of 72
Hello to all who are reading this! After reading the comments here and agreeing with the comments about the hexaganol pencils being a better quality, I contacted Derwent pencils via the main office number at 01296 397444. I spoke to a very nice lady named Sue Baldwin in the services section, who couldn't do enough for me and was extreamly helpful!
She explained that a "bad batch" had gone out some time ago and hadn't realised that any were still out there. All the quality problems have been resolved and they guarentee that all the pencils now are perfect and anyone could buy with confidence. Anyone who had any of the older "bad batch" would be issued a replacement by the company as long as the old ones were sent back to the following address. "Ms Barbara Murray, The Cumberland Pencil Company, Derwent House, Jubilee Road, Workington, Cumbria, CA14 4HS" Include a short note saying you believe that these pencils are not up to expectations and are probably from the "bad batch". Add your name and adress and they will be swopped for you.
Whatever quantity you send back will be replaced by a brand new one of the same colours, but perfect. If you purchased a tin of 72, or a tin of 12 it doesnt matter, they will exchange them for you. Mine has just returned today - Friday - after sending them back on Monday and the difference is obvious - the pigment quality is how it should be and the colours are fantastic! Hows that for customer service and feeling you can buy will confidence? I have bought Derwent sets before and never had a problem - the quality is always A+, and these are now no exception.

My Pencils arrived in a Metal tin with 24 inside.

I have included a few images showing what the colours are and just on there own and then what each colour looks like once water is added.
(On my colour chart, On the left - pencil on it's own & on the right - pencil with water)
These feel lovely to hold, as there is a nice weight to them, they are round shaped pencils.

* They look lovely and vibrant once water is added, you only need a small amount of water, So make sure to dab your brush on a tissue etc..
* Colours really do look like Ink once water is added, I was pleasantly surprised at the change.

* I have been using these in my adult colouring in books, just with the pencil mainly, but also by adding water on a few images.
* Very pleased with my results so far, My only criticism is there isn't a pink colour within the 24 pack, Would have loved one.
* Maybe i should have gone with the larger pack.

I would recommend you make yourself and colour chart like i did, as the colours on the pencils and the name written on them, can be a little different to the actual colour you end up with.

I am not an artist, but have found these a pleasure to use and am hoping my shading and gradients will improve by using these.
I would say if you aren't really looking to be adding water to most of your work and are looking for a pencil more for blending etc..then i probably wouldn't choose these particular one's from Derwent, I would probably go for maybe the Coloursoft version instead, But if you want to pencil that can do more than one job, then these are fantastic. Great for someone who hasn't got a steady hand, as these make painting much easier.

These water soluble crayons are excellent for anyone who has difficulty holding a brush steady for traditional painting. They cover well and shade neatly from pastel to darker shades. All become darker when water is added.
I haven't yet mastered blending colours to my satisfaction to create even more tones, though I am assured this is possible.
Yellow can be difficult but Derwent's "sun yellow" is a rich vibrant shade. Black reaches a reasonable depth of colour but looks rather dull.
For once I am looking forward to cold, winter days when I can stay in and create interesting pictures. (I hope)

These are inks, in glorious vibrant colours, in a pencil. Very versatile for fine work. I like to use in art journalling. A wet brush stroke, followed by the pencil marks gives a vibrant, precise outline or text. Can also lay down a background and wash over it. They are permanent once wetted, and so you don't lose layers with subsequent washes. They blend beautifully. Best using light first, then darker to achieve accurate tints. Colour range superb, with lots of earth tones and nature shades, along with vibrant brights. I just love all of the inktense range. Highly recommended. A quality product.

I love these oh so much. Do not confuse these with watercolour pencils. They are different. They are more like paint or ink than pencils. Once they're dry, they are permanent and no amount of water will activate and move the colour around (speaking for paper artwork, not other things like fabrics that might go in the washing machine). This is great because it means you can go over and add finer details with a different shade or colour without those details blending in to the layers below, like it would with watercolour pencils. Furthermore, because they are so intense in colour, you don't need to add nearly so much colour before activating with water like you would with watercolour pencils to get a lovely intense and vibrant look. But they are versatile enough to allow you to get soft looks too - just use less colour to the page before adding water or just use your brush to pick up colour directly from the pencil and then applying the colour to the page that way. Another option is to apply colour to only part of where you want to the colour to go and use the water to move the colour around, thus creating some lovely gradients of dark/intense to light/pale. So many techniques can be used that I won't even go into them all.

The only criticism I have is that the colours on the end of the pencil barrel don't really reflect the colour of the actual ink. That's easily remedied just by creating a colour swatch for yourself and using that to determine your colour scheme rather than relying on the pencil to tell you the colour. That's such a minor issue, though.

I so wish I had just jumped in and purchased the full 72 set instead of just the 36 set. I did not anticipate loving these as much as I do.
