Derwent Inktense Pencils, 24-Ct. Metal Tin
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.

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!
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
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.
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.
