Derwent Inktense Pencils, 24-Ct. Metal Tin

Fish
Vibrant Color with the Performance of Traditional Pen and Ink

Derwent Inktense Pencils are as versatile as watercolor pencils, with a firmer texture that allows them to perform with the brilliant intensity of traditional pen and ink. Use them individually or mix colors together to create rich, subtle tones for bold, expressive drawings. The soft leads allow for quick lay down of vibrant color, and they can be used dry or washed out with a little water to create a vivid yet translucent effect. Lift color off of the end of the pencil to strengthen the tonality of your work. And, if you need to soften it, apply dry color over drawn areas. Create texture by flicking color off the end of the pencil using a wet brush. Once dry the color is permanent and can be worked over with other media. Inktense pencils are perfect for a diverse range of art, from Japanese Manga to vibrant silk painting, traditional watercolors to stunning botanical illustrations. A color tab at the top of the pencil matches the core color for easy identification. And, they’re presharpened, so you can get to work right away!

  • Range of 71 jewel-like colors
  • Includes a non-soluble outliner
  • Also available in a metal tin of 12, 36, or 72 and a wooden box of 18, 48, or 72
Create in Three Ways:
  • On Silk — Wet the silk and use a dry pencil to draw directly on the surface or lift the color from the pencil with a wet brush and apply directly onto the surface. Once dry, the piece can be washed and ironed.
  • Rubber Stamping — Use the Inktense pencils to fill in gaps created by the stamp, or mixing Inktense and water to create a paint that can be applied to the stamp surface.
  • Quilting — Dab a small amount of textile medium on your fabric and simply color it with Inktense for a permanent design.

I first bought the set of 24 Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils, and liked them so much I then bought the set of 72 (order the 72 pencil set from one of the art stores like Blick Art at [...] These pencils are different from any other watercolor pencils, in two ways. First, they produce spectacularly vivid & bright colors, which are closer to what you can get with watercolor or gouache than any other watercolor pencil I've tried. Second, as the other reviewer stated, when dry they are permanent, meaning if you wet the picture again, the colors won't run. That might be a positive or a negative for you, depending how you work. Though these colors are vivid and bright, you'll want to still keep your Caran D'Ache or other more traditional watercolor pencils, because one of the drawbacks of this set (even the 72-pencil set) is that lightest shades of many colors are not included or even available in the set. For instance, there is no pink or light blue, no light green, no light lavender. So with the Derwent Inktense you can't really create a very "high-key" picture, one that tends heavily toward whites and light colors, as you can with a Caran D'Ache set. (You CAN do the low-key image, one tending toward the darker tones...)
Although the pencils are ostensibly marked with a colored end to show which color they are, the colors on the ends of the pencils sometimes are lighter than the actual hue produced, so those markings are misleading.
I also have the Derwent Graphitint set of 24 watercolor pencils which I like when I want to produce something of more subdued, earth-tone colors, since they offer a more muted palette. They are great as well!

I already reviewed these in the 12 pack set, but since I loved them enough to buy buy a bigger pack I figured I'd point out the color differences for those who may be debating about which size package to get as there really are differences...

Here is what you get in a 12 pack vs a 24:

12 = Cherry, Tangerine, Sun Yellow, Apple Green, Leaf Green, Teal Green, Sea Blue, Deep Indigo, Fuchsia, Baked Earth, Bark, Ink Black

24 = Poppy Red, Chilli Red, Shiraz, Tangerine, Sun Yellow, Sherbert Yellow, Apple Green, Field Green, Leaf Green, Teal Green, Iris Blue, Bright Blue, Deep Indigo, Sea Blue, Fuchsia, Violet, Mustard, Baked Earth, Willow, Bark, Charcoal Grey, Ink Black, Antique White, Outliner

Style Name: Inktense PencilsSize Name: 24 Count
I own this set, and have only just begun experimenting with the possibilities. The colors are vivid, and once dry they are permament, which is good for me as I'm not experienced with traditional watercolor techniques. My set bought at a retail store came with a 20 minute DVD with helpful hints and tips.
I love that this set comes with an insoluble pencil so that any outlines or guidelines that one has made will not disappear when you add water. Also, I plan to get extras of the black inktense pencil, as it is like having a portable inkwell that won't spill all over my car's upholstery or in my purse. It provides a velvety black as tested on my watercolor paper.
If you love both drawing with pencils of any kind as well as with pen and ink, this set offers a wonderful hybrid of the two. I think it is especially great to add to a traveling art kit. I just think its altogether great.
I can't wait to try Derwent's graphitint line as well.

Style Name: Inktense PencilsSize Name: 24 Count
These pencils are absolutely wonderful. I have other watercolor pencils, a huge set of regular Prismacolor pencils, tube watercolors, pan watercolors, pastels, and on and on. Of all of my art supplies, these are unquestionably the best for what I do as a costume designer. I love them. As the other reviewers have mentioned, there is a dearth of lighter colors, which I have to compensate for by using flesh tones and pastel shades from other watercolor pencil sets, but otherwise, these are incredible. I have the 24 pencil set of them, and I am looking to purchase a larger (probably the 72 pencil set) today. They do take a little experimentation and getting used to, as with any medium, but they are absolutely a pleasure to use.

There is so much good to say I don't know where to start. Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils are definately worth the price. These are not your ole Crayola watercolor pencils for the kids. What intrigues me is how much this medium of watercolor pencils calls out to your own style and drawing out your own creativity. You can draw as pencil and then paint over with water, dip in water like a rad marker, or make little pools on a pallette and mix in, just to start with a few methods. The colors on these are incredible.

My favorite method thus far is to ink my basic shapes as you would in cartoon drawing. Then come back to fill in areas with the pencils dry. Then to lightly transform the dry color with water on a small brush. There is so much control here that you will find yourself working in nuances and subtle gradations that are not really possible in many other mediums. There is just something about this combination of easy, good looking, and highly portable, to make this art form, and these Derwent pencils, a runaway hit in the small art world. I like them so much that I got rid of my acrylics and have switched to these as my primary painting mode.
