Derwent Inktense pencils combine the effect of pen and ink in an innovative pencil format. A highly blendable texture, strong, vibrant colours that can be used wet or dry.

The colours will appear vibrant when dry or using a slightly wet paintbrush, the pigment can be washed out to leave an ink-like effect. From vibrant, intense dry colour to translucent, ink-like effects. Once dry, the colour is permanent and other media can be worked over it.
