Intenses Pencils watercolour by Derwent.

These pencils are water based

Derwent pencils have been manufactured by The Cumberland Pencil Company in Cumbria in the UK since 1832 and is now a brand under ACCO UK Ltd.

The Inktense pencils are marketed as Derwent’s “best watercolour pencils ever”, capable of laying down “permanent colours after washes and drying,even on silk and cotton”.
The big selling point of this particular range of 72 colours is that the artist can go from “pencil to ink in just one wash” to “combine the vibrancy of inks with the subtlety of pencils”
You can use them dry but mix them with water and the colour turns into vibrant ink.
