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 can be worked over when dry. 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 loose, expressive landscapes and colourful still life paintings. They can also be used for rubber stamping, decoupage, or on fabric to create stunning silk paintings and quilts.
