Derwent Inktense Blocks, 30 colours
Water soluble coloured blocks of solid ink which can be blended together and intensify when water is applied. The ink marks become permanent and can be used in combination with other media to create a variety of stunning effects. Inktense blocks are perfect for large expressive pieces, splashes and loose marks.
Inktense products make an ideal companion for watercolour artists who like to work directly with a brush on all sizes of artwork. They can be used like pans of paint, applied directly to wet or dry paper and use on their side to cover large areas quickly. While watercolours are transparent and “washable”, water-soluble Inktense become more vibrant when wet and the marks are permanent.
Derwent Inktense blocks and Inktense pencils offer very exciting opportunities for textiles artists. As the ink is permanent, it can be used on fabric and designs can be washed at 30°C and the fabric retains a good handle. On silk fabric, gutta outliner can be used to define areas and stop the Inktense colours from bleeding.
