Its sooo Inktense

Hi everyone,
I managed to get my hands on a pack of 24 Derwent Inktense pencils at the weekend and today had a chance to play and decided to record it at the same time.
For those of you who have never heard of Inktense, they combine intense colour with a translucent ink like effect. there is more info in the video but this is my first attempt with these and compared to my Derwent Aquatone watercolour sticks, which I also love the Inktense colours are far more vibrant.

Above is the bisque piece from the video, finished with a little distress ink on the edges and script stamped with copper Stazon.

Anyway without boring you any more here is a little time lapse video

A quick time lapse demo of Inktense Pencils


  1. Great idea - I have Inktense pencils so just need some bisque pieces to give it a go!!

  2. WOW Andy this looks fantastic. I must try harder with mine. S x

  3. Looks really good!

  4. Great depth you have achieved in your colouring Andy, those pencils are fab too !! Great for layering colour because they are transparent !

  5. Had more time to play with them today and the more you use them the more you love them!

  6. love the video's, however would like to see them last a bit longer so you can get to see the detail you put in, instead of zipping through at mach 2.
    all the best
