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.

Drewent inktense pencils are the best product!
from Sonora, CA
Brilliant color, hands down better than watercolor pencils. A huge variety of colors. They will last a very long time even when you use them as often as I do.Give them a try you will be so happy you did.
from Eureka Springs, AR
I love Inktense for detail work like eyes...but also great for larger things too, including backgrounds in my art journal. Run over the end with a wet brush and create lovely splashes of color that are permanent when they dry!

I love this product and the color variety is quite remarkable with the 72 Inktense selection. I would buy this product again.
Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils
from E. Greenbush, NY
Great rich color saturation. I'm new to use and find uneven coloration on larger areas. Fine detail no problem. I have used Intense Bock's and had fun with gradation of applied color, mixing colors and special effects. I apply to WC paper, coloring books. And, will be applying to fabric in order to enhance a print artistically or draw a scene.

Superlative Excellence In Jewel Tone Colours
from Albany, GA
The colours of the Derwent Inktense Pencils absolutely cannot be be matched by any other media I've ever used, I make these exquisitely colored pencils to make interactive games for elementary age learning manipulative games as well as for my personal art and enjoyment. The tones glow on the paper as if shining with an inner light. I wish there were more colours but that is the only negative because they are just that good. It is as if Derwent has managed to combine pure jewel essences with their high quality pencils to deliver the most intense tones. I am totally wild for these Derwent Inktense Pencils. Sorry, but try as I may, I just cannot find a negative comment about these exquisite jewel toned pencils.
from Sterling Heights, MI
I am just learning to use the Derwent Inktense pencils. This is a different medium because they are ink and in a class of their own. I love the intensity of the color but it is a learning process for me because I'm not used to this type of medium. I definitely recommend these pencils if you are looking to try something beyond colored pencils.
from Alachua, FL
First time trying these and the color is really, well INK-tense! Nice hard lead too, not fragile like some pencils.
derwent inktense pencils
I do a lot of coloring and was looking for a colored pencil that gave very vivid intense color to what I was coloring. these colored pencils are excellent quality and they lay down color smoothly. AND IT REALLY MAKES THE PICTURE POP WITH COLOR. these colored pencils are awesome.
I love these pencils!
from Dallas Tx
I absolutely love these pencils. They apply in such a unique way that nothing else is comparable. I use these for coloring in canvas to have a watercolor effect while still maintaining a vibrant pigment. Works with water or with blender markers.
