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.

The best place to find just the right colors!
By Artist Wannabe
from Venice, Florida
I just love the Derwent Intense pencils. I use them in all my coloring instead of having to buy the very expensive markers others use. After application, I go over the areas with water to bring the gorgeous color to life. It's almost like magic. From Dick Blick you can buy individual pencils and save .. no need to buy a whole set for just the right color!

I wanted to achieve deeper richer colors, and that's just what the Inktense pencils provided. It changes the effect dramatically.
Exciting potential & fun to explore.
from Winchester, VA
Tried these as a break from acrylic while studying color & value, and underpainting & glazing. I began with graphitint pencils and then purchased these Inktense pencils. I have found it a great way to work my studies of color & value with a variety of papers and prepped surfaces (ie gesso surface & crystal clear light acrylic spray over finished work looked great for holiday gift cards)to achieve brilliant color and depth without a lot of mediums and clean-up. Building color by drying between coats works like acrylic glazing and teaches the building of values & color to achieve good results. I am looking forward to increasing my competence with these. It takes time & patience to learn how to build layers and control color/value by drying between applications. Also, it lends itself to the adult coloring books as well... especially if you prep the paper (i.e. clear gesso) or transfer the design to mixed media paper for personal practice. With a water reservoir brush, this is a great portable media. Great for busy college students with limited hobby time. Makes a good gift.
Great for advanced watercolor artists but not for beginners
from Dardanelle, AR
Do not buy these for serious watercolor paintings. They act like permenant ink which cannot be moved around for long. I use them for miniature paintings by extracting color from the pencil manually then laying it down with a brush. They are great quality though and sharpen well. They are also great for straight coloring without water. A bit pricey though.
Vivid, saturated colors even with small amounts of water. They're my favorite product to use in my journaling Bible!

We have the whole family coloring with Inkyense pencils
from Cazenovia, NY
At Christmas this year, we spent a lot of time coloring. Me (grandma), the purchaser of the pencils, my daughter, daughter-in-law and 41/2 year old granddaughter. The Inktense pencils were a hit, particularly when used with a water pen to blend them! I had to buy more so everyone had their own set.
