The 12 Brands Of Christmas - Brand #5 Derwent Inktense Pencils

 Derwent Inktense Pencils




Derwent Inktense Pencils are as versatile as watercolour pencils, but with a firmer texture that allows them to perform with the brilliant intensity of traditional pen-and-ink. These pencils are available in strong, vibrant colours which work beautifully on their own or can be mixed together to create rich, subtle tones. The pure, clean colours are perfect for bold expressive drawings, but can be used with plenty of water for a much more subtle look!
Inktense pencils can be used dry for rich, intense colour or washed out with a little water to create a vivid translucent effect. Once dry, the colour is permanent and can be worked over with other media.

Personally, I love Inktense! The colours are just so vibrant, it's hard to believe the intense (yup, see what they did there with the name!) colour has come from a pencil. It could just as easily be an ink wash!
Here is a little video...





There are 72 gorgeous colours in the range...




Derwent Inktense Pencils can be found in the ASOI shop HERE!

Now.... you may notice that there are no flesh tones in the range..... So, how can you create faces? (OK, that was my first question, it might not have been yours!)
The simple answer is to experiment.... and tomorrow I'll show you a brand new whimsy girl created entirely with Inktense colouring! Here is a little peek...




Don't forget... you need to leave a comment on all 12 designers posts to be in with a chance to win the mixed media bundle! We've had Jaine, Vicki, Clare and Georgie so far.... did you leave them some love? You can always go back if you've missed one lol!
See you all tomorrow!

I think these pencils are the most versatile kind, so make a perfect colouring medium for crafters. I only have a small set and it's great to be able to buy singly the exact shades required.
