Derwent Inktense Blocks
Perfect for bold, expressive drawings, the 8mm square block of Derwent Inktense Blocks combines versatile function with vivid colour. Use the block edge for fine details or the entire side to cover large surface areas quickly.
For generations, artists around the world have trusted the Derwent brand. With a proud heritage dating back to 1832, Derwent’s innovation comes from a deep understanding of artists. We appreciate that artists’ needs and aspirations may change over their artistic life, and with this in mind, we’ve produced a wide range of high quality art materials, many of which are made in our British manufacturing plant in The Lake District, Cumbria, in the United Kingdom.
Whether you’re an illustrator, designer or student, you can expand your creative possibilities with Derwent Inktense Blocks. They can be used dry for expressive, bold drawings, or washed out with water to create a bright, yet translucent ink-like effect.
The colour is permanent when dry, allowing you to create a long-lasting and vibrant project. Plus, when the pigments are washed out, they are designed to dry quickly, which helps minimize colour bleeding. Layer or place contrasting colours next to each other without the fear of colour bleeding.
As the pigment dries permanently, it can be used on several surfaces. It’s great on fabrics, such as silk and cotton, and is ideal for quilt making. If you prefer more traditional projects, the block glides smoothly on paper. Modify your artistic canvas to fit your next project.
Mix colours to create a truly unique piece of art. Whether you are using the blocks dry or with water, you can easily mix colours together to create expressive blends. You can obtain lighter shades of a colour by simply adding water.

One caveat: remember that they work on paper, AND fabric. That means your clothing as well. Be sure you avoid getting any on your clothing as it may stain permanently. It washes off of skin with soap and water.
It is INK, so it sticks to any absorbent ground... paper, clayboard, canvas. It is one of the few pigment mediums that will adhere to Yupo fairly well. Once it is THOROUGHLY dry, it is waterproof. That makes these great for under-drawings!
The colors flow like watercolor in thin washes, or become as opaque as gouache when applied thickly.
You can draw with them, then add water to melt and blend colors. You can shave away pigment with a knife or sandpaper to create new color-mixes and add water to make beautiful effects.
Having raved about the quality and the value, I can only make one small complaint. Though this deluxe collection with all the colors is very nice to have and a good deal, you don't need all those colors. I suggest you start with a smaller assortment like I did. Then, if you find them useful, you could invest in more colors. As it is, no-one sells open stock versions of the other colors, so the only way to get some of the colors is in this large package. That's a shame, since some colors are obviously more useful than others and people always have their own favorites.
HEY! DERWENT! Start selling these individually!
Other than that, I can find no fault with this unique product. They are one of the best inventions in art materials in the history of human endeavor.
Also, if you drop any pieces onto carpet, clothing or upholstery, expect a stain that will never come out. I am going to try to use some Scotch guard cleaner to remove a stain on the carpet. Soap and water did not work. Oh well, the life of an artist who never learns to use tarp :P
These blocks compliment the Derwent inktense pencil set. Use high quality watercolor brushes, it makes a world of difference!
