Welcome to dickblick
Derwent Inktense Pencils are as versatile as watercolor pencils, but with a firmer texture that allows them to perform with the brilliant intensity of traditional pen-and-ink. These pencils are available in strong, vibrant colors which work beautifully on their own or can be mixed together to create rich, subtle tones. The pure, clean colors are perfect for bold expressive drawings, including fashion illustration, landscapes, greeting cards, and more.
Inktense pencils can be used dry for rich, intense color or washed out with a little water to create a vivid translucent effect. Once dry, the color is permanent and can be worked over with other media. Pencils are pre-sharpened.

Lovely travel watercolor pencils!
from Addy, WA
We travel quite a bit, so I'm frequently sketching/painting as quickly as possible, even in the car - pencils are a superb solution to painting while moving or in a hurry, and Derwent's Inktense offer lovely pigmentation. I prefer them since I use stone paper or vellum sketching pads, and they offer buttery softness that doesn't indent the paper like a harder pencil, and I can add water and paint when I have time!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
These are the best ink pencils and color blocks ever!
By Lorry the Quiltaholic
from Delaware, OH
These Derwent Inktense pencils as well as the Derwent Inktense blocks of color are used in my quilting projects! I like to draw on fabric with the pencils and blend the ink into it with water. The blocks then give me more depth of color on top of what I used with the pencils. The best thing is that the ink is then permanent and it does not fade over time I don't even have to heat set. So many Wonderful, Brilliant colors, I just had to get the 72 pencils and well as the 72 blocks! Couldn't pass up on the 1/2 off price!

The Inktense pencils have opened a whole new world of watercolor for me. Fun!
from Marietta, Ga
I bought the 24 set of Derwent Inktense and 23 extra Inktense pencils of my choice. I was so excited about the purchase. I wanted to practice on a picture I copied, so I used Pan Pastels as a base, with inktense and Faber Castell colored pencils.

Rich colors, smooth application
from SLO, CA
Smooth flow onto paper, good coverage, intense rich colors.
from Grand Rapids, Mi
I love the watercolor pencils. They're easy to work with. I enjoy them because I have more control over my piece of art then with plain watercolor paints. Inktense pencils are great for blending.The colors are vivid dry or used with water. I think they would be great for beginners too.
Works best in combination with the Inktense blocks
from Lompoc, California
I think all colored pencils are over priced. But the Inktense seems to a better bang for the buckas I used less layers due to the depth of the colors and painting in with the blocks
Rich, luscious colors!
from Portland, OR
Bought a 24 color tin, fell in love with the richness and then bought 20 more at a great price. Rich colors like watercolors, but, watch out, these are ink and will not lift. I use them for my sketching with pen/ink and they are much more portable than watercolor especially when used with a water brush.
I like this pencil. It meets my needs.
By Daryl the Cowboy Cartoonist
from Shawnee, OK
I use these pencils for coloring my cartoons I produce for greeting cards.
