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.

- A highly blendable texture ideal for rich tones.
- Once colours are washed out they dry quickly meaning very little bleed occurs.

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.
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.Read more ›
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)
A great product-no more carrying round bottles of ink for outdoor painting sessions. You get comparible quality of effect using these innovative pencils and a wet paintbrush!
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.Read more ›

Adds so much to very plain rubber stamping projects. Important to look at you tube for guidance to use product properly.Published 9 days ago by Margaret
Derwent quality but rather disappointed that the 'inktense' colour described isn't particularly intense. They work well as watercolour crayons thoughPublished 1 month ago by Susanbeckysam
