Derwent Inktense Colour BLOCKS Tin of 72

5 items left
A comprehensive set of 72 highly pigmented, intensely vibrant, watercolour blocks that are permanent when fully dry. Experiment with different watercolour techniques to add some fun vibrancy to your fine art piece or use in unconventional ways to add some magic to your crafting projects.

Using the active colour technology and advanced performance formulation found in Derwent Inktense pencils, Derwent's blocks allow for a more versatile application. Grate, shave, scrape, spritz, crumble or shape your blocks to achieve a myriad of effects. Use flat for broad expressive lines and fuller coverage or use the corners for more precise colour placement. Mix with water and see your artwork transform.

Unlike traditional watercolour, Derwent Inktense blocks have been uniquely formulated in vivid ink-like colours, offering exceptional layering capability without moving previously dried layers. Inktense can also be used on more than just paper; due to the staining power of the pigments, you can use the blocks on many porous surfaces including canvas, ceramic, wood and fabric.
