From the manufacturer
Derwent Inktense Watercolour Pencils
The Inktense range combines the intensity of pen and ink with the versatility of line and wash. As highly pigmented colouring pencils when used dry or ink-like watercolour pencils when wet, Inktense offers vibrant, intense colour for bold expressive drawings, without the mess associated with traditional watercolour paints.
A watercolour painting can be created by applying a light wash to the dry colour to wash out the pigment for the ink effects. When dry the colour is permanent and can be worked over with other media allowing for finer detail and areas of vibrant colour to be added. A non-soluble outliner pencil is included within tins of 24 and above, which allows permanent outlines to be added, even when water is applied.
Ideal for a Diverse Range of Pencil Art
The 72 tin contains 71 Inktense water-soluble colours plus the non-soluble outliner pencil. The pencils are easy to sharpen and break resistant, making them ideal for long periods of use. They are incredibly versatile and are ideal for a diverse range of pencil art including Japanese manga, silk painting and unique quilting projects, suiting illustrators, flower artists and fashion designers amongst others. The diverse colours also make it ideal for use with Adult Colouring Books and Relax Therapy Art Books.
Key Product Features
- Soft leads allow for a quick lay down of colour.
- Vivid translucent ink-like effects are created when the pigment is washed out.
- A highly blendable texture ideal for rich tones.
- Once colours are washed out they dry quickly meaning very little bleed occurs.
- Rounded barrel ideal for broad, sweeping strokes
- Colour coded ends for easy identification

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.
Oh one last thing, these wouldn't fit in my regular sharpener, i purchased the Derwent Blender & Burnisher kit at the same time and that came with one, that they fit into fine..
I do hope this helps you figure out if these are for you or not..X

Derwent Coloursoft Colouring Pencils Tin (Set of 24)
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. I would dearly love it if Derwent did a secondary 36 set with the rest of the colours so that I didn't have to double up on half of my colours or resort to buying them open stock. But open stock is an option and thus, the smaller sets are worth buying if you want to spend less just to try out a selection of the colours.
The packaging for this was well thought out. Not only was the tin sealed with plastic and some easy to peel stickers on either end of the tin, but inside had a seperate plastic covering over the pencil tray and strips of cardboard over the pencils to hold the pencils in place on the tray, thus not allowing the pencils to move around during transit. Well thought out and such a nice touch.
One other thing to note: If you're a serious artist and intend to hang or sell your paintings or other artistic creations, be aware that although they're permanent, not all the colours are lightfast. You may wish to look into which colours are and consider if you're going to need to use some sort of UV fixitive to help protect your work.
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)
