Derwent Inktense Pencils, 12-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!

  • Use wet or dry
  • Includes a non-soluble outliner
  • Also available in a metal tin of 24, 36, 0r 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.

My mom informed me that she was sending me some watercolor like pencils - but different as a gift. I thought "okay, well I'll be using those as colored pencils then" as I'd had watercolor pencils before and was never impressed by any of them. She assured me these pencils are impressive. Bright. Could be used on fabrics. Blah blah blah. It all went in one ear and out the other really. They arrived. I drew with them. Didn't really bother trying the water aspect until I got bored one day.

WOAH. I should have listened to mom. We've all learned by now our moms are usually right, right? Yeah these colors are really intense - ok INKtense after you add water. In fact they're nice and all when you draw with them but really they're much better with water, which is a first for me with pencils meant to be used with water. The colors lighten and brighten so much after adding water that I almost couldn't believe they came from these pencils. Once dry you can layer new color on top of them, ink over them, etc. The original wash will stay pretty well set if truly dry.

I've not experimented on fabrics yet beyond a quick test that I haven't yet washed, but they did work well and my mom assures me if handled properly they work well (a quick search will find you tips for setting them into the fabric though all you need is a fabric medium and an iron).

I'd probably go with a larger set but starting small never hurt anyone. Personally I plan on buying more colors.

I've bought tons of art supplies over the years, including other water-soluble pencils. As I'm sure you noticed from the description, Inktense are different in that, once wet, then dried, the color is permanent. You can use them as dry pencils and the pigment/binder is soft enough to get a nice deep shade of your color. When you add water, however, the color really pops. The perfect companion for these is a waterbrush. With the Inktense pencils, a waterbrush & a small drawing pad, you've got a portable mini "studio".

I started with the 12-pencil set, in case I wasn't happy with them. I plan on buying a bigger set when these are gone (or maybe even before!) so I can have more colors. The 12-color set set I received includes the following colors:
-Poppy Red
-Deep Indigo
-Bark
-Apple Green
-Deep Earth
-Teal Green
-Sun Yellow
-Sea Blue
-Leaf Green
-Fuschia
-Tangerine
-Ink Black

I've seen, on other sites, sets of 12 with different colors, but this is what I received from this seller.
I use them with a fine point Sharpie since the Sharpie ink is unaffected by water. I love using these and I think you will, too!

These are the best pencils I have ever owned. The capability of either using the with a paintbrush and water, or a water spray bottle spritz activates the vivid tones. I have attached a drawing I did with standard colored pencils, and again pretty much the same drawing with the Inktense pencils. This shows the difference. I regret that I only bought 12 of the Intense pencils, and will be shopping at Amazon.com for more.

I like these new pencils as the product claims they are permanent. They're like watercolor pencils only once make a wash with them the color doesn't smear. I found I had to wait a day before varnishing painting so they wouldn't smear, but look forward to testing these pencils again soon!

These inks are wonderful on fabric. I use them to enhance my digital prints of original photographs. They are not nearly as messy as using tubes or tablets. Amazon Verified Purchase.

The 'Art Rebel' that I am, I wanted to try something more exciting than regular colored pencils . I draw a lot of faces and combine different mediums. Like watercolor and a layer of pastels and add fine details with pencil. I was very happy to see that these Derwent pencils, which are really a form of ink, blended in so well with the watercolor I was doing and after it was dry stayed in place even when the paper was wet. I also found that I can take a wet brush, rub it against the pencil tip and get instant 'wash' to apply to my painting. I just love this product. Derwent is of superior quality and well worth the money. If you buy it here on Amazon its a lot cheaper than in the art store. While the Inktense have a deeper more intense color it can be lightned by adding the color with a brush OR just buy a set of Derwent Graphite pencils . They are much lighter and good for a lighter wash.

All the reviews I have read are from people who are using these for drawings. For all the quilters these pencils are amazing! You can accent any of your fabrics with these pencils. Once you add a small amount of water, the colors are permanent.
You can add color shadings, draw your own pictures on fabric, have the kids color something special and then add their drawing to your quilting project. If you have a spot on your clothes that has been bleached out, color over with the pencils and add your water and now your clothing is back like new. You can mix the colors to get any shade you want. The color will get a little darker when you add the water. Possibilities are endless!
