Derwent Inktense Blocks bring a new sense of freedom to the drawing and painting experience. They are water-soluble ink blocks that can be used dry or wet. Dry, they deliver pure, vibrant colour, when wet, they create a translucent ink-like paint that becomes permanent and can be worked over when dry. Smooth dry colour is easy to apply and produces a vibrant finish.Tin contains 24 colours: Sherbet Lemon, Sun Yellow, Tangerine, Poppy Red, Chilli Red, Shiraz, Fuchsia, Violet, Iris Blue, Bright Blue, Deep Indigo, Sea Blue, Teal Green, Ionian Green, Apple Green, Field Green, Leaf Green, Mustard, Baked Earth, Willow, Bark, Charcoal Grey, Ink Black and Antique White.
Their chunky shape makes them extremely versatile. Use them dry to apply fine lines or broad strokes directly to the paper. Wet, they can be used like pans of paint, dipped in water to apply colour directly to the paper, or applied to wet paper for instant, intense colour. Inktense Blocks are ideal for mixed media, canvas, rubber stamping, decoupage, or on fabric to create stunning silk paintings and quilts.
