Inktense pencils are an incredibly versatile product, which, since their introduction, have extended the boundaries, concept and use of traditional pencils. Derwent have now produced a range of Inktense in block form.

They have exactly the same characteristics as the Inktense pencils while increasing the range of possibilities that artists can use Inktense for. Inktense blocks are available in 24 vibrant, translucent, ink-like colours.

They are quick drying with very little bleed and the colour is permanent when dry, allowing it to be worked over with other media.

Only a little water is needed to make the colour go a long way and the chunky 8mm square block makes it perfect to hold.

The large 75mm long blocks allow large areas of colour to be laid down very quickly, encouraging a loose style while producing free and expressive marks.

Inktense blocks can be used wet or dry.

  • Chunky shape makes them extremely versatile
  • Ideal for loose, expressive landscapes and vibrant still-life paintings; apply them to silk, decoupage and rubberstamping
  • Use them dry to apply fine lines or broad, expressive strokes
  • Wet they can be used as pans of paint - add water for a watercolour effect, or apply directly for intensity
  • Set of 12 colours can be combined with Inktense pencils for additional effects
