Vibrant Colour with the Performance of Traditional Pen and Ink

Derwent Inktense pencils are the best watercolour pencil ever! You can use them dry but mix them with water and WOW! the colour turns into vibrant ink. Once it’s dry the colour is fixed and you can work over the top of it, and, because it is permanent, it’s great for using on fabric such as silk and cotton!

Derwent Inktense Pencils are as versatile as watercolour pencils, with a firmer texture that allows them to perform with the brilliant intensity of traditional pen and ink. Use them individually or mix colours together to create rich, subtle tones for bold, expressive drawings. The soft leads allow for quick lay down of vibrant colour, and they can be used dry or washed out with a little water to create a vivid yet translucent effect. Lift colour off of the end of the pencil to strengthen the tonality of your work. And, if you need to soften it, apply dry colour over drawn areas. Create texture by flicking colour off the end of the pencil using a wet brush. Once dry the colour is permanent and can be worked over with other media. Inktense pencils are perfect for a diverse range of art, from Japanese Manga to vibrant silk painting, traditional watercolours to stunning botanical illustrations. A colour tab at the top of the pencil matches the core colour for easy identification. And, they’re pre-sharpened, so you can get to work right away!

Create in Three Ways:

On Silk — Wet the silk and use a dry pencil to draw directly on the surface or lift the colour from the pencil with a wet brush and apply directly onto the surface. Once dry, the piece can be washed and ironed.

Rubber Stamping — Use the Inktense pencils to fill in gaps created by the stamp, or mixing Inktense and water to create a paint that can be applied to the stamp surface.

Quilting — Dab a small amount of textile medium on your fabric and simply colour it with Inktense for a permanent design.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers.  I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much.   I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies.  We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary.   You have made our lives so much simpler.   I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends. 

Thank you again.
I will be back.

I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

Great job!

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!

I hope I’ll be able to  broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J

Take care
