Derwent Inktense pencils are lightfast, water-soluble ink stick pencils that can be mixed with water to create colorful, fluid, ink-like effects. Once dry they will resemble Sumi ink brilliance, will not dissolve, and other media can be applied over the color to achieve the desired effect. Inktesne pencils can be also used dry for rich intense color.
