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.

Derwent Inktense Pencils
from Randle, WA
Comments about Derwent Inktense Pencils:
These pencils are great for putting down a permanent watercolor like wash. I really like that I can draw a design with the pencils, wash over them with a bit of water, then once dry, I can draw over the wash again with any other media. One thing I've noticed with the pencils is that some of the differently named colors appear the same once they are wetted and dried. Another concern is with lightfastness and hopefully Derwent is working on this issue.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best concentrated color
from Arvada, Colorado
These colored pencils are so versatile, they can be used to convey a light suggestion of color all the way to an intense, color drenched water color patch.
from Houston, TX
The pencils are soft and very pigmented. I enjoy using these pencils to touch up the shading in my watercolor pieces. Not only are these good for watercolor, they are also good just as color pencils.
Customize any lace color to fit your garment needs
from Stanwood, Wa
I used these inktense pencils to color customized a piece of lace for a purple heirloom dress for a toddler. It was easy to use; permanent once set and lent itself for perfect tinting and accenting portions of the lace.

I would buy again
from San Angelo, TX
I use to color -- Adult Coloring. They are very smooth and have so many more of browns and greens than other pencils.
Best water color pencils
I have used different brands of water color pencils over the years and I have found these to be the best. The colors are vibrant whether used as a colored pencil or with water. They also sharpen nicely without breakage as other pencils. I use them for drawings, water color and for adult coloring. Well worth the investment and as always Dick Blick stands but there products. There customer service is the best.
By Beginner Artist
These pens are amazing. I have had so much fun experimenting with them. My artist husband was even interested in using them. Worth every penny if you want to experiment with watercolors!
Drewent inktense pencils are the best product!

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.
